I have started a group in Silicon Valley: http://www.meetup.com/EthereumSiliconValley/
Our first meeting will be Tuesday Feb 4: http://www.meetup.com/EthereumSiliconValley/events/164068492/
For this initial meetup we will just get acquainted for a few minutes after the SV Bitcoin meeting described at this URL: http://www.meetup.com/Silicon-Valley-Bitcoin-Users/events/161907222/
Please come to the front right of the room after the normal Bitcoin meeting. I'd love to hear your ideas for what we should cover in future meetings. I'm looking for people to talk about the Ethereum protocol, IPO, and using the pre-release client. You do not need to be a guru to talk on these topics, just willing to prepare to talk for 15 minutes on a topic at a future meeting.
