'Google Home Mini' Donut Shop Pops Up In Hayes Valley

Earlier today, Google announced its new smart speaker, Google Home Mini, will be released on October 19th and is shaped like a donut—which is why the tech giant opened a pop-up pastry shop next to Patricia’s Green in Hayes Valley, according to tipster Melissa L.

"[With a] chance to win either donuts or their new Google Home Mini product," she tells us. "Two donuts came in the box. One is blueberry and the other is glazed with sprinkles."

In a Facebook event, Google explains that the shop is open today until 8pm, with a return engagement from October 14–15.

One of 11 pop-up locations spread across the country, these shops are the only places where people can try out the device before its October 19th launch date. 

Hoodline tipster @R27D posted photos from the event on Twitter:
