I've confirmed this with a coworker, however, he gave me the contact
information of the group that deals with reservations, so I'm going to
try contacting them directly.

I also agree about the lack of community halls. This annoys the shite
out of me since there really isn't anywhere that you can gather for
larger events such as uninterrupted public speaking and hardware/software

Looking at the schedule, the amount of free space available here is
ridiculous and a huge waste of space and resources so I'll see if I
can't find some way to get an area. The current bookstore/coffee shop
meetings just don't seem like they would scale too well in the future.
