Our Meetup events are in DC, & around the Metro area (Maryland and Virginia) as membership and locations permit. See our About us page here for more - http://web.meetup.com/59/about/
We have had several great, successful events, and are continuing with more types of high quality events to make these even more fun, useful, and informative. Larger happy hours and smaller discussion groups have worked, and we are also working on new ideas for upcoming events.
