how often do they hold these?

The AVF has lots of meetings, tours, etc. Every Tuesday evening the have an open house with drinks and snacks and conversations. Throughout the week they have conversation courses in French, Spanish, Italian, etc. And once per month or so they organize some kind of outing like this. It's a pretty cool organization to be a part of.

Great link, thanks! I hope you also add in the website info for expats and in general new people arriving in Lyon as it's useful (just as the restaurant info!)
I'll definitely find out more on AVF
