So even though I've been reading the posts on CH for a few years now, I finally bit the bullet and officially joined (a.k.a. created a log-in). I see quite a few posts (God bless you faithful posters) from the same people - Steve, Nancy, NVCook, etc. - but what I really want to know is... have you all formed a local "Chowdown Group" that dines together regularly? How would one weasel her way into said group to eat with like-minded people who truly appreciate a good meal?
