There is a treasure horde of great magic stores in the Bay Area. There are more than ample places to play pre-releases, PTQs, and much more.
I try to organize about 4-6 Vintage tournaments at Eudo a year - and not more - because we want to keep it special enough that people will make the drive from more remote areas of the Bay (like San Jose, Vacaville, etc.). Although the Vacaville folks do organize events as well. There is a bay area eternal facebook group that tracks events.
I think there is a weekly Eudo Legacy event, and at least a monthly larger one, but I stopped playing Legacy with the advent of Vintage on MTGO.
To be honest, the real thing that has hurt paper Vintage at the local level, in my opinion, is the advent of Magic Online. With monthly big, competitive Vintage tournaments in the form of the Power NIne Challenge, the urgent need to have regular competition is greatly diminished in my opinion. Plus, daily events also fill the need for people who want to play Magic more frequently than that.
Hope to see you at Eudomonia in the near!
