OK, I'm going to go out on a limb here. I think it would be nice for those of us in the Bay Area to meet somewhere. It could be something as simple as meeting up at a local pub for a drink. We could meet at my place, if there aren't too many people, and just chat over hors d'oeuvres and drinks. We could meet at a park and bring a picnic, pot luck, whatever.... Anyway, it just seemed to me like we had so many people here from the Bay Area and it might be nice to meet each other in person. You can pm me and then we can all take it from there. Respond to the thread too with ideas and whether or not you would like this to happen.
