Yeah, you really want a place with some sort of desks. I'm personally a fan of round tables as they spark conversation, but classroom-style works well.

Try to get donated space. It is a big cost if you don't.

Some places make you use their catering and that is always more expensive. Last year, we brought in our own and it was very very cheap. Shoot for under $20/person for food.

There isn't. It would be cool, but probably not feasible in the short-term.
