Unfamiliar grounds

Don’t get me wrong,I am so excited about the private opening today at HANAhaus at the beloved and historic Varsity Theater, 456 University Avenue, even if I put about 500 hours into trying to wrest the lease from Chop Keenan and give it to someone like the former Bill Graham Presents of San Francisco.

Chop told me “this will rock” and I believe him. For at least six months. Until Labor Day.

But it is funny to order a cup of Joe and see this in the bottom of your cup:
Any statements contained in this document that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “project,” “predict,” “should” and “will” and similar expressions as they relate to SAP are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. SAP undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations. The factors that could affect SAP’s future financial results are discussed more fully in SAP’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including SAP’s most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of their dates.

Mayor Karen Holman, who I endorsed and voted for, is more politique about this:
“We’re thrilled that SAP is opening HanaHaus in our community,” said Palo Alto Mayor Karen Holman. “It is a reflection of Palo Alto as both a steward of the past and an entrepreneur for the future. We are one of the world’s centers of innovation, and HanaHaus aims to create a place to spark creativity and community. I encourage everyone to spend time in the space after it opens to the public later this week.”
