That's certainly true -- the office definitely isn't a requirement for such
a local group, it's just one of the possible things that could happen with a
move. And as I said, I'm not that familiar with St. Pete -- it sounds from
Danny's message like there's a nice community there as well.

Anyway, organizing a greater-SF Bay meetup has been on my to-do list for
months now :) If anyone is interested:
