Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

pongping.JPGAre you enjoying your Friday? Gov. Jerry Brown's staff seems to be, judging by this photo of a little shindig in the enclosed outdoor space adjoining the governor's office.

According to Evan Westrup, a spokesman from the governor's office, the party was celebrating the birthday of an unnamed staff member.

Westrup also confirmed that there were two kinds of cake and multiple table tennis games.

The patio area visible in this photo used to house Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's notorious smoking tent. So it's no stranger to good times, although pingpong seems to be a more innocuous way to relax.

Thanks to the anonymous tipster who pointed Capitol Alert to the party. More on this breaking news as the story develops.
