Can I technically be "based" in one city but live in another? Why does it matter where my "home office" is? I alt-travel to see my friends in another city every weekend and I'd rather just live there.

It's completely fine, I've been like that for a couple of years now. And networking can happen on your projects and ICs, partners usually don't attend networking events

How will you attend local office networking events? Those things matter, face time with local leaders matters

D1 why is networking in my local office more important than networking in the other office?

Good point EY

They make the decision at year end. Your project only provides support, local office leaders will finally decide the rating

Tax implications. Be based out of Texas or another state with no income tax.

If you go to a wedding and the reception is three hours after the ceremony and in a different location, is it weird to wear a different dress to each? The reception is at the hotel we’re staying at so it would be super easy to change in between. The ceremony is also middle of day July in California so I could see wearing a short dress for that but then long dress for indoor reception later that night. Thoughts? I’m a “regular” guest, not bridal party or family or anything
