The OTHER Obama events

Barack Obama, who’d publicly announced a town-hall meeting with Google employees and a grassroots fundraiser in San Francisco for tomorrow, is raising big bucks at three smaller fundraisers today and tomorrow.

The $1,500-a-head price — $2,300 for admission to a special pre-reception — didn’t prevent donors from booking up all the slots at tonight’s event at the San Francisco home of Vista Equity Partners principal Stephen Davis.

Before heading to Google tomorrow afternoon, the candidate will be feted at a $2,300-a-head lunch at the Tiburon home of former investment banker Pam Hamamoto. And even as people start cramming into San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium tomorrow night for the grassroots event, Obama will be pocketing $2,300 checks at a 6 p.m. reception at former state Controller Steve Westly‘s house in Atherton.
