It sounds like there's enough interest to have another jQuery DC meetup downtown in the near future. I'm throwing out a date and, I'll arrange for a space and sponsor for food. I'll figure out the space after I see how many RSVPs are coming through, but I have a few ideas in mind (could use suggestions as well).
If you're interested in presenting, let me know. I'm sure we could talk about the new changes in 1.4.3 all night, but an interesting plugin or technique would be great to hear about as well.
