We've been having meetings almost every month except the
last couple.  Generally five or six people show up if it's
called a couple weeks ahead and close to BART.  Triple Rock
Brewery in Berkeley and Pacific Coast Brewing Co. in Oakland
have been popular (both close to BART, the latter at a major
BART intersection and with fairly easy parking).

South Bay would be cool too but no S Bayers seem to have
called meetings in forever.
