We have had several Meetup ideas for the area. http://chocolate.meetup.com/86/calendar/suggest/
Post suggestions, take a look and see what you like, and vote for them. If enough votes come in for each we'll schedule as an official Meetup, with the person who suggested the idea as the key point of contact for the event.
