Sure, bring 'em on down.  

CABAL has meetings every 2nd and 4th Saturday (4pm to midnight), at
which it's extremely common to bring machines do Linux work on.
http://linuxmafia.com/cabal/ has details.  That's at my wife's and my 
house in Menlo Park.

SVLUG also has installfests every 3rd Saturday in north San Jose.
See http://www.svlug.org/ for details.
