It began with some flirting on the Craigslist personals board. Then one brave regular posted a call out to all the women reading: Let's get together! With only a handful of attendees, those first few encounters solidified the base for what would become Foodies, a net-based social group for women who love women who love food. Now going strong in its second year, with more than 1,700 names on the mailing list, Foodies gets more and more creative: Think secret admirer love notes and bachelorette auctions. For those simply wishing to test the waters with a tentative toe, meet-ups often take place at casual joints like Nueva Onda, the Fox & Hound, and Jo's Hot Coffee. C'mon in; the water's wet.
