There is a pretty active IDSD (Industrial Design San Diego) group on LinkedIn as well.
They host happy hours every month or so:

IDSD happy hour #22 At BJ's Brewhouse in Carlsbad (Wed August 29th @5:30pm)
Hope everyone can make it to our last Wednesday of the month event. It's next week at BJ's. Come blow off some steam, relax, and talk design with your peers. I'll get there a little earlier and try to secure a table in the bar or even on the patio, weather permitting. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
