When Elon Musk bestows his presence upon the Valley of Silicon, he can't just hang out in the coffee bars with the rabble. Luckily, there is a special place that Elon can go when he's in town, a magical place for anointed beings like himself.
Musk is among the few who get to visit Google's secret apartment in downtown Palo Alto, according to Ashlee Vance's new book, "Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future."
Page and fellow Google cofounder Sergey Brin sometimes meet with Musk to talk about technology, transportation, and more in this private location, Vance writes. Google even has its own chef on call to come prepare food for guests who are allowed into this apartment.
Judging from what is discussed, it seems that this trillion-dollar troika definitely needs some snackage... and some incense... and probably like a rolled-up towel to put under the door.
From a source quoted in Vance's book:
“I was there once, and Elon was talking about building an electric jet plane that can take off and land vertically. Larry said the plane should be able to land on ski slopes, and Sergey said it needed to be able to dock at a port in Manhattan. Then they started talking about building a commuter plane that was always circling the Earth.”
So here's an image to ad to our growing catalogue of the life of Elon Musk: Tesla's Homeboy Executive Officer sitting in a luxury Silicon Valley penthouse, seated around a glass bong table with Larry and Sergey, snacking on freshly-baked toast covered in contraband foie gras and grilled ramps, and talking about electric planes and rocket ships under a blacklight.
Bro... bro... just picture it.
