I also just learned about meetup.com from visiting these and other boards.  I went to my first meetup last Saturday. 

We just went for drinks to a quiet lounge where we could easily talk (I think there were about 9 or 10 of us).  It was nice as we are all just getting to know each other, as the group is newish.  However, future meetups are planned for dinner, bowling, comedy club outing, walks at a park, etc.  I think it has grown a bit and so some "sub" meetups are planned for those that are single parenting (with kid friendly locations selected for those), etc.

I like the idea of a weekend.  For most of us, weekends are the hardest times of the week, so a Saturday night meet up is a nice way to break things up.

Good luck and good for you for venturing out.  It took some courage just to attend one, let alone organize one.  I am sure those that participate will greatly appreciate your efforts.

Thank you for the suggestions, Kater. I'm hoping doing this will reverse my current trend of preferring to stay home by forcing myself to go out. Since I enjoy helping others, hopefully it will be successful.
