I'll also look you up if we are there mid week.

As to recommendations, I like the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson in 
Sunnyvale, which is at Ca 237 and Caribbean.  If you run around by the 
bay is Weird Stuff, and it is about 2 or so miles from the CHM.  At 237 
Caribbean becomes Lawrence which is a handy road since you can easily 
get to Halted for another stop.  Their new spot is quite a bit better 
stocked than the original location.

I'm not sure Fry's is worth a stop, unless you don't have one and want 
to see what they have.

Charles might chime in about the place he stayed while here for VCF if 
he sees this, that hotel seemed good, though I don't recall where it was.

I really like Tomatina's for Italian, though it's a drive.  We stumbled 
across it and were highly impressed with the food.

I'm in Southern, Ca, and travel up there a time or two a year, FWIW.
