I recently posted a message on the General Topics board about my frustration at having non-chowhound friends and an only-marginally chowhound husband. We went down to Chinatown, and, well, it wasn't what I would like a Chinatown trip to be. I love my friends (and a absolutely love my husband!) but I'd love to be able to go places with Chowhound-ish folk. Is there any interest in creating a local Chowhound club, so that we could go on periodic jaunts to great places? I organized a New York Sushi Society many years ago and it's still going strong. We meet for quarterly banquets and have great food, but many of them are not general chowhounds -- just sushi buffs. Any interest?
