San Diego Food Community

I've realized that the San Diego boards are a bit more tightly knit than others. I see a lot of familiar names, and have even know a few members personally.

I know there are a few meet-up groups around the area, and was wondering if you guys/gals are/have been a part of them.

I'm really only familiar with the Serious Eats San Diego meetup, and San Diego Fine Dining - I'm yet to attend events from either, but plan to for the former on Serious Eats day (The 25th). Any others?

    Hmm, I'm curious, what kind of places does the latter group eat at?

      I'm 85% sure I'll be going to the Serious Eats as well. Never heard of the fine dining

        I believe their latest meet up is going to be at BICE, but they've had many others..it's a large group, not everyone attends every event seems like a neat idea though - I thought a few chowhounders might be members.

        and you better be at the SE meetup

        What about something like Dinner with Six Strangers at Alchemy? I don't know if that is anything you would be interested in.

          I've read about that, whiskenladle also does a similar thing - I was more looking to see if any familiar chowhounders were members of any of these or had taken part

          haven't been to any of those groups but I think it's pretty cool that the SD board is a tighter-knit group!

            So do I. Members don't seem to bicker (too badly) here, and actually seem to care about making San Diego's growing food scene a better one. I'd love to share a table with a lot of the members I routinely see.

              really? we don't bicker too badly here? I guess we all bicker w/ a wink and a smile! :-)
