I went along to the Sylvia Park Architecture Chat (http://wiki.bittercoder.com/Default.aspx?Page=SylviaParkArchitectureChats) yesterday in order to have a chat with some of the guys. It was great, I love talking (and listening) to other developers in a social setting. The chat is basically a way of getting a bunch of developers together to talk about things they have experienced lately, and discuss issues with like minded people. They have a focus on .Net, but some of the topics are applicable to other spaces as well. I highly encourage everyone to go along, it is well worth the time!
