Bored in Class - Stalking the Giantbomb in the wild!

So, another day at class, another lecture on website stuff.  I gotta do something to stay awake, but what?  I dunno...where is Giantbomb set up at?  Their mailing address is 1001 Bridgeway in Sausalito.  But what about their offices?  What if I wanted to walk by and give the chaps there a hearty handshake and a pat on the back for such a good job?  Can one really figure  out where THE Giantbomb is sitting?  I dunno...maybe...

I remember seeing some outside shots of Jeff and Ryan trying to get into the office.  Let's take a look at some of the footage of the "How to Build a Bomb" videos:

Jeff's a big man, so he's gonna need a big Shreddah©.
















Here's Jeff Gerstmann crossing the street, in front of a triangle-roof shack.


Jeff Gerstmann: Model Citizen crosses at the crosswalk.















Get in the shade.  What are those in the background, mailboxes?  Paper dispensers?


Work inside all day + 0 time = teh pale.
















A streetview of the neighborhood.

With all that ca$h the staffers are making, it's sure convenient to have that Yacht & Ship shop nearby.




















It's the Triangle shack again, but with Sausalito Yacht & Ship, and an address - 1306 Bridgeway

Ryan Davis: General Burnside's Avatar.





"Almost there, son!"












Ryan Davis in all his beardliness.  We see some white rail detail on the building, like in the other picture.

"No thanks, we don't want any."
















The "How to Build a Bomb Ep 2" video has both Ryan and Jeff walking towards the camera and to their right to approach the office entrance.  This is a little blurry, but it's important to show where the door is at - to the left of all that railing.

Okay, so we've painted a clear picture of scenes surrounding the Giant Bomb offices, and we've also got a good look at the office front door.  Now, to every stalker and ex-lover's favorite tool, Google Maps!

Ye Olde Tri-Angle Shacke. Google Mappes.





















Google Maps will estimate the address as well as provide a streetview of major cities in the US.  Here we are at 1298 Bridgeway.  There are the major landmarks - Triangle Shack and Sausalito Yacht & Shop.

Save the environment. Ride yer bike.





















At 1302, we've got a shot of the Yacht & Shop,  and we've got those paper dispensers, too.  Hey, remember when Jeff crossed the street?  Let's flip around and see what's on the other side.

It's a street. Yeah.


























Here's the building across the street.  Totally doesn't resemble what we're looking for (white railing and a door on the left of it).  Well, when Jeff crossed the street, he also hopped into some shade.  Let's find the shady crosswalk.

Not a coincidence they got the building with all the shade.


























At 1290 Bridgeway, we see the crosswalk and some nice shade.

That's no moon...


























And at 1284, we see it:  white railing, and a door on the left.  There it is!  The Giantbomb offices.
