I used to go on occassion but it's been a very long time. If I want to learn about something new I will watch their youtube videos - quicker and easier and no drive time.

I will only attend lunch/learns  IF the topic is something that I really need to learn about.  It's weird but when people get free food they act like they have never been fed before and that just grates on my nerves. Watching others go into a frenzy over the boxed lunch totally detracts from the session....for me anyways.
