I was at SQL Saturday here in Atlanta a couple weekends back, and it was great. Steve Busby gave a presentation on SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse, which I found very interesting. In the demo, he was running an aggregate query that performed a table scan across 240 billion rows in one second.
Also, the previous Friday, I attended Adam Machanic's full-day session on parallelism and performance and would highly reccomend it.

Yes, the first SQL Saturday took place in Cambridge in May 1813, where a young Charles Babbage demonstrated a prototype of his new difference engine running SQL Server v1.0.

I attended my first in Detroit a few months back and it was great.

Second for me is Columbus on 6/8 - I'm looking forward to it.

I went to the one in Redmond a couple of weeks back. I enjoyed it, especially learning more about HDInsight. As an old time programmer (TRS-80 with a cassette tape) I was tickled that the circle is now complete. Big data is just the same as ancient data.

I was there as well. They said it was the largest turnout ever for a SQLSaturday event. Great experience in a very nice venue also.
