I'd have to count it up to give you even a ballpark number, but I remember seeing a pretty healthy number of CA firms/offices on the recent bidlists. Chicago obviously dominates, but some CA-headquarted firms recruit heavily here. Paul Hastings comes to mind.

I wouldn't bid only on SF. There wouldn't be enough firms/interview slots to do that even if you wanted. I'm pretty much Chicago or bust but I'm still going to bid on NY and secondary-market firms if for no other reason than the low bids would go to waste.
It really depends on grades though to determine how many realistically productive interviews you can get.
