-- My organizational burnout continues. I enjoy attending other people's events and participating, but man, taking on the responsibility of events is something I haven't missed at all. That being said, if anyone wants to host, please don't let my reluctance stop you. It pleases me greatly any time I see someone else chipping in to host an event because there's a place they want to try or they're in a dinner-hosting mood. Please, feel free to step up!
-- This burnout has led me to contemplate whether I want to keep the group going. We had 100+ events our first year, and many fewer the next six months. I could start
charging a dollar a head to cover the $72 semiannual dues, continue to eat the dues while not hosting much, or just gravitate over to Bay Area Gastronomers or San Francisco Foodies or Bay Eats and (only occasionally) host over there while leaving someone else to pick up the reins here, or disbanding it. I would say that if someone ever wanted to host their own Meetup dining group, with a built-in membership of 560+, I wouldn't stand in your way if you wanted to take this group over. Let me know if that appeals to you.
Thanks, and sorry for not hosting more over the past six months.
