Here's Your Chance to #GetGoogleClass  on 4/15
 
Become a Glass Explorer on Tues April 15

Whoops. So... we’d planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat's out of the bag now. Over the past several months, we’ve been trying out different ways to expand the Explorer program. Some of you signed up at Google I/O, some told us what you would do #ifihadglass , some were referred by a friend, some joined through their school or university. Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better. But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too. So in typical Explorer Program fashion, we’re trying something new. 

Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in. You can find us on Tuesday at: http://google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one

We’re excited to meet our new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts about Glass.

*To everyone outside the US... we know. Sorry :( We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries.

Brunching in Beantown

Brunching is a favorite weekend pastime, but going to the same-old, same-old can lose its appeal. Perk up your plate this weekend with +ZAGAT's Best Under-the-Radar Brunches in Boston:  http://goo.gl/qkcBTL

Bring on the Ooey Gooey

It may be a childhood favorite but you're never too old for a supremely comforting (and delicious!) grilled cheese. Whether adult variations or the good ol' classic, we can't get enough of this wholesome cheesy treat.

Where is your favorite place in Boston to snag a grilled cheese?

Could be, I'm not sure. I just see the truck and grab a couple. They are good when I'm on the run! 😋
