Eek…I’d feel VERY uncomfortable signing anything without seeing it in person, but it’s up to you.

Is there a family member or maybe a really good friend in San Fran that can check it out in person for you? If so, have them take lots of pictures and give them your list of questions to ask the venue. That way you have an honest opinion of someone you love and trust. good luck!

Can you fly out for a weekend?  I’d be really worried about signing a contract sight unseen.  I’ve seen a lot of stories of people finally seeing a place they’d expected to love and not really wanted to use it anymore.

Do you at least have someone you trust who knows your taste our here who can check out the venue for you?  Or a weekend you can get away.  Since there’s a lot of direct flights, you *can* do the trip with only two days off – I’ve done it before at least twice.

@brookeb269:I agree.  I would at least have a family member or close friend check the place out first.  Putting a deposit down, especially if its non-refundable, on a place sight unseen is rather scary.
