Ports closed, restricted food/bad options for vegetarians, cost & inconvenient location make me think we should explore other possibilities.
For a more productive, smaller, and socially interesting environment I am considering moving it to a more quite area outside of San Francisco all together. Also open to other venue option in SF in case anyone has any ideas.
One option: http://www.visitasilomar.com/
(** I have not looked into this option yet to see if it is really possible)
