https://www.meetup.com/Arlington-Hearts-and-Spades/
where you will find a colorful "Join" button in the upper right.

2. This is an online gathering, using Spades+ (for cardplay) and Zoom (for conversation). It requires an Android or Apple device, on which you must install Spades+ (free). (Note that "Spades Plus" is a completely different app.) Zoom can run on any platform with a microphone. It's best to have Spades+ & Zoom running on different devices, but if you use one, you'll only miss the video part.
