If you spend any time clicking around Mashable — or hanging out at the bottle-service clubs in Williamsburg — you know that we are in the middle of a major tech boom. Not unlike the early 2000s, startups are being fire-hosed with cash to spend on their big ideas —  and those big ideas need nourishment. And buttercream cupcakes. And a Pinkberry station. And plates of bacon.

In an exhaustively research story in today’s New York Times, writer Molly Young details the food that is being served as some of the more prominent tech companies. (She’s also a part of the story herself as an employee at online eyewear company Warby Parker). The story is worth a read, but for quick reference, here are the 20 gratis food and drinks on the menu:
