Anyone using Location Taxonomize module for D7?

I'm using Location module (lastest version) with D7. I need the city field to be associated with a city taxonomy vocab. Not seeing how to do that within Location, and the project page makes reference to some lacking features; not sure whether it is meant to support this or not. (The issue queue has nearly 700 posts, so I won't even bother to ask there.)

Miami (Coral Gables) meetup

I was lucky enough to attend a new Florida Drupal Empire meetup in Coral Gables last week at the Planet Linux Cafe (full details - http://www.meetup.com/Drupal-Miami/events/57984462/). We had a nice turnout of 15 people, including Alfred Smith, the person who put it all together (thanks, Alfred!) A few other "regulars" from the Florida Drupal Empire were also in attendance, but I'll let them speak up in the comments below.

Suggestions, please (2 issues)

Could really use some suggestions - not find solutions within the modules. Maybe overlooking. Preference by saying that I am not a module developer. (And, prefer contrib mods for client best interest as well.)

USE CASE:
Business Directory

FEATURE #1
I want good drill-down filtering of data, so using many exposed filters -- all with multiple value option. Played around with template and CSS solutions, but seemed kludgy and never quite good solution.

Problem: Hideous Views exposed filter block (depth and not-so-user-friendly select open-box, rather than checkboxes).

Orlando Drupal Meetup (Migrate), April 21 1pm

Start: 
2012-04-21 13:00 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Come learn how to use the Migrate API and a small custom module to import data from just about any system into a Drupal 6 or 7 site. Migrate has been around for a while, but the current branch relies heavily on writing code and making it very easy to run all your migrations from Drush. It also integrates with a ticket tracking system so you can have your client review the migrations.

My project is to connect to a backend system that uses Postgres and try to keep Drupal in sync with it - that will be my example this week.

Some DrupalCon Migrate videos:
