As I stand on a terrace dotted with flat-screen TVs, watching a beautiful couple making out in a swimming pool below, I have a revelation about why the Cross-Country Love Crowdtilt met its fund-raising goal: For every tech guy struggling to find love in San Francisco, there is one struggling harder to find novel ways to spend his money.
The funds necessary to fly 16 girls cross-country so they can sleep four to a room is nothing compared to the sums that disappear when hotly anticipated start-ups go bust.

Tucked into a private canyon in the Upper Napa Valley on a 157-acre site marked by ancient oaks, majestic hills, a rock-hewn stream and private lake lies the renowned Napa Valley spa resort, Calistoga Ranch – the ultimate expression of the Napa Valley experience.
With a flexible $400 resort credit, there is something for every mind and mood.
