Unfortunately, I wasn't available for the Chowathon - sounds like it was great! I'm wondering if folks would be interested in some occasional meals out as a group -- for a dinner during the week or breakfast, lunch, or dinner on a weekend. Maybe once a month? (Or people could also post more last-minute plans on the board.) It would be a great way to explore some of the wonderful places being discussed, and to meet other local Chowhounds.
