    How long will the class last? Parking can be a pain downtown. Where is the best and closest place to park near the event?

      The class is 3 hours long. There are 2 lots that are flat rate $5 on Market just north of Santa Clara. There is a free lot over near city call which is 3-4 blocks away.
