Meetup Locations

In the past, there has been some feedback that the places I pick are too 
expensive.

With The Grape closed, I am leaning towards Pelagia (inside the hotel at 
the International Mall).
The food is good and they have a private room for 25 that they do not 
charge extra for!

Giordano's is closed as well. While that was cheap, the noise level was 
challenging for any speakers.
The service was lousy too.

So Brio has rooms upstairs BUT they require a $500 spend on 1 check.
No separate checks.  It's a nice room though.
That means $25 per person.

We can try going to the Marriott on Westshore (where we had the Holiday 
Geek Lunch).

I even engaged an event planner to find space in the Westshore district. 
The result: every room has a rental cost that on average runs $150.

So I am looking for ideas.

Our next meetup is on Tuesday, Feb. 21.  I need a location.
