Meetings have been held at dvGarage thanks to Alex Lindsay and staff, but the December 2007 - June 2008 meetings will be at Adobe's Macromedia building in San Francisco at 601 Townsend at 7th (bus 19 or walk from CalTrain).
Also, the Monday December 3 End of the Year Party is free (but you must register) with AE/Commotion guru Matt Silverman.
And the January Macworld FCPUG SUPERMEET tickets are available too ($10 in advance, $15 at the door if tickets remain). This event also has great speakers and waiting lists for the last three years. There are currently over $12,000 worth of prizes in the raffle and going up.
