Hi Ben - welcome to San Diego,
Feel free to use this list to plan or propose any social activities - even small ones. Messages you post here go directly to about 140 of your neighbors without being filtered by any social network and has been gaining a few new members every week. We have divided this into seven "subgroups" that I have pasted below. The only ones that I have been organizing events for and the only ones currently active are the "PB40 Bike Club" and "Pool Sharks and Wannabes" - plus I am going to try to get the "PB Bookworms Club" going again - we had a meeting this summer but almost everyone bailed at the last minute and only one other person showed.
Any member can join any of these groups, and messages posted there will "pass through" to the main PB40 list unless they are blocked by a member not interested in that activity. So for example, someone who doesn't drink may not want to see messages from the "I'll Drink to That" group can easily block that topic without affecting their participation in other groups. That means that people can feel comfortable posting here because no one should be getting unwanted messages - it is under their control.
I see that you are the only one other than me who has joined the "foodies" group even though I am sure there are others here with an interest in "Food, Cooking and Dining" - who isn't? - so feel free to use that list to to post ideas, suggestions, requests for recommendations - anything about food in this neighborhood.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
I'll drink to that!
