Jim, it's Peter Wells, from Burke and Wells, long-time Chowhounds, I hope you remember us.
I searched through the site and couldn't find anything about meetups. I reach out to you and the CH moderators here because I'm not sure where else to post.
I'd love it if each board that represented an area also had a board listing invitations to or news about meetups. For instance, we're in New York City now, and I'd LOVE to make my once-monthly eat outing (yeah, I'm on a psycho strict diet!) something special. I'd like either to pick a place and toss out an invitation to hounds, or peruse invitations that might be open in the area to join.
Is there a way to do this using the site? Perhaps it's here somewhere and I missed it? If it's part of he Area Board itself, the enormous turnover and new threads push such things down so fast I haven't been able to see them.
If you're familiar with Meetup.com, that's the sort of thing that I was considering. If CH wanted to do it on its own, that'd be very exciting too.
So that's my feedback! If this belongs elsewhere, such as "not about food" or something, feel free to move it.
