So I'm Making a Cooking Club at my University...

...and I'm wondering what sort of activities you guys might propose for such an organization? My ideas so far are:

*Occasionally just cook together, but with some commentary on why a recipe works/why it doesn't/how we could improve it
*Food-related trips into Chicago (though what we could do here, besides just go out for dinner, is beyond me; Taste of Chicago is only in July, isn't it?)
*"Good Eats" screenings? Chances are quite a few members will know very little about cooking, and Good Eats is pretty good for teaching stuff. I'm especially looking at the "technique" specials (i.e. knife-work). Maybe watch an episode and then make its recipes.

Keep in mind I'm not a great cook myself, but I do enjoy it and cook pretty often, so I'm not a complete idiot either.
