International Serious Eats Day: January 8, 2011

Just a friendly reminder: International Serious Eats Day is fast approaching! It's on Saturday, January 8, 2011.

What is it? A chance to meet up with fellow SE'rs in your area!

How does it work? We're using Meetup.com to establish various self-organizing meet-and-greet-and-eats around the U.S., Canada ... the world!

So far, SE'rs in and near the following locations have started meetup pages. Find one near you! (Don't see one? It's not too late to start your own — more on that below.)

If You Want to Attend ...

You can use Meetup.com to register your interest. Simply use your Facebook account to log in (or sign up anonymously the old-fashioned way — using your email address). Once you're signed in, you can join in the discussion regarding venues and/or time. Many of the cities still don't have venues or meeting times, so do your fellow SE'rs a favor and suggest a good place for a group to meet up!

These are self-organizing, so venue and time are up to SE'rs in the various locations. We originally suggested a 2 p.m. start time, but feel free to deviate from that.

A suggestion on choosing venues: It's probably best to pick a place that can readily and casually handle a group — we chose a large biergarten/bar with a good snack menu for the one in NYC. That way, attendees can pay for their drinks and food as they go — and no one will get stuck with dividing a bill or having to make up for any forgetful person who left early (not that any SE'r would do that, right?).
