How to re-key a '69 Volkswagen Westfalia in San Francisco?

We have a 1969 VW camper van. We love her. Unfortunately, the previous owners redid the locks horribly and now we have a problem: the back window hatch lock doesn't work, we don't have a key to it that works, and we can't fix it. [more inside]

I have a small consulting firm (3 people) and our busy season kicks off on Labor Day.

One woman, ~48 Hours, San Diego - what to do?

I'm going to have a weekend or more to burn in San Diego in mid-September. I've visited several times before & done most of the obvious tourist things (list behind the jump). Complications: I can't drive so public transport/on foot options only; vegetarian; I'm active enough to walk/hike distances but not interested in sports activities; I'm comfortable doing most things by myself, but bars are always a challenge unless you know it's a zero-harassment place; I'll be based in Old Town.

Where to Have a Small Meeting near LAX

I’m hosting a day-long meeting for nine people near LAX in September. Can you recommend a hotel in the neighborhood that’s moderately upscale? By which I mean, suitable for successful, middle-aged professionals who, luckily, understand that we’re not made of money. [more inside]

Where to stay for a weekend retreat in between Orange County and SF?

I'm trying to schedule a weekend away that is convenient for everyone, so I'm looking for hotels/motels/cabins/other along the California coast that are relatively equidistant between San Francisco and Orange County. I'd like plenty of access to hiking, the beach, good food and wine, maybe some good stargazing- but all this on the lowest end of the cost spectrum, please. There will be either 2 or 3 of us and I'd like the cost of accommodations to be as low as possible without entering into roach motel territory. (Under $100 per person)

Why do so many people turn around at the end of the BART line?

When I get off BART at the Dublin/Pleasanton station, I often see quite a few people (as many as ten) getting off my train, walking across the platform, and boarding the train that goes the other direction. Dublin/Pleasanton is the end of the line, and there is only one line that goes there. What are these people doing? [more inside]
