MonthlyMeeting.com is a brand new website that gives people in the USA a way to get together in person to share common interests. Groups can be set up in lots of different topics areas: professional, political, hobbies, etc.
Want to start a Java certification study group in your city? A Hillary for President group? A group for Red Sox fans?
Start your own group or join an existing one. It gets you out of the house and it's free. That's free as in free beer, freedom, freezer, Morgan Freeman... you get the idea.
