In a recent trend, the area has EXPLODED w/ smaller local munches (many averaging only 12 or less in attendance). More prominent meet-ups are listed, but there are just too many smaller gatherings that come & go for us to maintain. If this is of interest then please see Fetlife for possible options in your area. Thank you.
