Since you're still in the Bay Area, I recommend taking the BART over to San Francisco, since there's a lot of film photography stores and a few labs over there. One store that can help you get set up is Glass Key Photo in the Lower Haight; I was there over the summer and they have everything you need from basic color print film to chemicals to develop your own. The owner regularly posts on these forums under the handle tjaded, so send him a PM to get more info. Also nearby is Photoworks, which is a very highly regarded photo lab, although since I've never used their services, I can't personally vouch for them.
P.S. If developing film yourself, you can use a darkroom bag to load the tank in daylight; only your hands are in the dark. When processing, the developing tank is light-tight, so you don't have to be in a completely dark room. As for printing in the dark, I use these red LED floodlights to light up the darkroom: http://www.cyron.com/p-4-lightbulb-p...laces-15w.aspx . They're about as bright as a 20w lightbulb, but they deliver an extremely narrow spectrum of light that the photo paper can't "see". I use 2 of them in my darkroom, and have never had a problem with exposed paper.
