I am actually going to be in San Francisco, at least for part of the time. My parents and I are taking a trip out there. We will remain in the SF for quite a while, but will take trips up further north as well.
As far as magic goes, I always make it a point to stop in at a magic store in various locales that I travel to, but if it is a hassle, then I don't worry too much about it. As far as meetings go, I was just checking to see if there was anything along the lines of Gary Darwin's meetings once a week in Las Vegas, where I could meet some of the local magicians.
I plan to fully enjoy the region as well as possible, as I've never been on the West Coast before. Thanks for making sure I keep my priorities straight, however. I wouldn't want to waste time looking at famous sights when I could be purchasing the latest Sankey DVD to watch in my hotel room... :D
Thanks for all the replies and help!
