The ideal environment would be a place with tables, chairs, power
connections, WAN connections (and/or wireless), and somewhere where we can
sit for a bunch of hours for a few days and chat/code/eat/drink/mess around.
Projector would be a perk. Also, there should be a few places not far
(walking distance) to eat and a few places to do random things after-hours.
This is my vision of it at least.

>... is that the kind of thing you'd have available in SLC?

Well, there are a few options here. I have checked around roughly, but have
been waiting for things to settle in here before doing serious inquiries.
In SLC, I have options of a concert hall that a friend manages (lots of
space), meeting room at the city library (new and a nice place in the middle
of everything), a friend's office in park city (although that would be a bit
out of the way, but a beautiful area), and a room at the University of
Utah's library (projector included). There are tons of places to eat around
in walking distance of all of these and places to frolic afterwards
(although we could always go to a friends house or even congregate in a
person's hotel room).

Well, do some not-so-serious asking around to get a picture and come back
and let us know! More options are always better.

Agreed. A place where no one knows about just to be "center" would not be
good. Although, a place like Vegas would work, however this would be much
more pricey for meeting area and would probably not be worth it.
