I'm +1 on a Bay Area meetup; however, if it happens I likely won't be
making the Grenoble meetup. There's a slim chance I can do both. I'd
like to figure this out ASAP so I can book travel at a reasonable price.

A second meetup certainly can't be bad; I'm sure we can get a ton of
work done with the folks that I assume would attend. :)
