In Tel Aviv, we have three types of meetings, all on Tuesdays. Monthly we have a full meeting, usually a lecture or sometimes Rump Sessions (informal lightning talks). Typical attendance is 12.

Monthly, alternating fortnights from the above, we do game nights.

We are graciously hosted by Meni Rosenfeld's Cluster startup hub. (For a few years we were hosted at Google.)

On other Tuesdays a few LessWrongers get together at a pub.

How did you go about finding people to come to your meetups? Pre-existing friends? LW site postings? Something else?

Pre-existing friends, postings on Facebook (even though FB does not distribute events to the timelines of group members if there are more than 250 people in a group), occasionally lesswrong.com (not event postings, but more that people who are actively interested LW seek out a Tel Aviv group)
