TC Cribs: Eventbrite’s New Bright And Shiny HQ — Welcome back to a new episode of Cribs! This time around, we headed over to Eventbrite, the company behind the very popular ticketing and live events platform. If an Eventbrite Cribs tour sounds familiar, it may be because we have done one before.

TC Cribs: Ticketfly, Where Meetings Morph Into Impromptu Jam Sessions — In this episode of Cribs, we headed over to Ticketfly, the startup that runs a ticketing platform for all kinds of live events. As you can see in the video embedded above, going to visit Ticketfly HQ is kind of an event in itself.

TC Cribs: Evernote’s Expertly Caffeinated California HQ — In today's episode of TechCrunch Cribs, we headed over to Evernote, the company behind the beloved notetaking software. Evernote has often said that it intends to be around for at least a century, which may well be why they've situated themselves in a very large building that gives them tons of room to grow in the years ahead.

TC Cribs: Lending Club’s Hole-In-One San Francisco HQ — Welcome to another episode of Cribs, the TechCrunch TV series that gets nosy and tours the inside of tech companies' offices. This time, we headed over to Lending Club, the startup that's built an online marketplace for financial lending.

CrunchWeek: Twitch’s $1B Sale, Snapchat’s $10B Valuation, Uber’s Operation SLOG — You can tell when summer is coming to an end: The weather turns cooler, the days run shorter, and tech news starts to pick up the pace. This week was a great example of the news cycle perking up as we head into fall, giving us a few big stories to talk about for our weekly CrunchWeek show.

Tilt, The Startup Formerly Known As Crowdtilt, Drops Fees For Groups Pooling Money — Tilt, the group funding startup that recently chopped its name down from its former moniker "Crowdtilt", announced today that it's chopping its fees, too. The San Francisco company has dropped the fees on its "Collect" feature, which lets groups of people pool money together for shared causes or events, such as parties, group vacations, and gifts for friends (we've used it a couple times here within our TechCrunch staff.)

Honest Co., Jessica Alba’s E-Commerce Startup, Has Raised A $70M Series C — Honest Co., an e-commerce startup co-founded by actress Jessica Alba that makes and sells eco-friendly personal care products, has raised $70 million in a series C funding round, the company announced yesterday. The new round was led by funds affiliated with private investment management firm Wellington Management Company with the participation of existing investors including Lightspeed Venture Partners, Institutional Venture Partners, General Catalyst Partners and ICONIQ Capital.

12 Questions With The CEO Of Thumbtack, Google Capital’s New $100 Million Bet — In the often hyped-up world of Silicon Valley, Thumbtack has flown a bit under the radar since it was founded five years ago in 2009. But with the announcement today that it's landed a whopping $100 million investment from Google Capital, it's become clear that Thumbtack's days of relative tech press anonymity are most certainly over.

TC Cribs: Storm8, The Land Of Very Colorful Desks And Lots Of Fancy Beer — In this episode of Cribs we headed to Storm8, the company that makes lots of popular mobile social games. Storm8 is housed in a, well, pretty bland looking corporate building in suburban Redwood City, so we weren't sure what to expect.

YC Demo Day Session 3: UPower, Edyn, Craft Coffee, Immunity Project, And More — The crowd of founders, investors, and press has finished eating lunch here at Y Combinator's Summer 2014 Demo Day (quinoa, salad, some kind of beef stew thing, soda, and beer, FYI) and we're back in the saddle for the third of four sessions of startup pitches.

@susie_c @kimmaicutler "why it's complicated" part in the post is just scratching surface of issue, yes. But Kim seems to acknowledge that.

@susie_c @kimmaicutler I read it as "Oakland rent is cheap & its politicians and biz leaders *want* tech money. Here's why it's complicated"

@kevinmonty I want to know the 20 year old's name, so I can write him in for mayor. He was great.
