ok, if you don't mind getting some sanitized, media approved version of it.
Here's the direct link to AA...
If you call the GSO (General Service Office) I'm sure they have information for the public all prepared for people just like you.
If you look up locations, and try to call, I have no idea what your results will be.
I'm not sure if you getting that most AA meetings are held in church basements, locations in a strip shopping center, all purpose rooms at community centers, etc.
If there's going to be a meeting at 6pm, someone who has a set of keys to the church basement shows up around 5:30pm to start some coffee, move some metal chairs into place, etc.
Chances are, someone else will already be hanging around outside the door, to help.
It's not like you can call a lot of these places, and they will even be open.
Places like a bay in a shopping center "a club" would be open all the time, because they have meetings at regular times during the day and evening. Also, there's always people who just want to hang out.
If you were to call one of them, it's not like there's a office there, with a designated person answering the phone, with a directory of people to help you.
If someone there, they'll go over and pick up the phone. Ususally it's someone asking for a meeting time, or directions. Of course they'll be people in distress calling, and they will be talked to, encouraging them to come over.
As far as calling and saying you'd like to interview someone....well, you're just talking to one individual guy or woman, which I'm sure as you can tell by now, could be anyone from soup to nuts.
I think if you were to call and ask someone for an interview, they would say something like "come over to a meeting" they might think you have problems, and are just using this as an excuse to talk to someone.
Ok, revising what I said about "going undercover"
Find a large place, where there's going to be a lot of people, and pick an open meeting.
Chances are, you'll be able to go in there without more than the designated greeter at the door introducing himself, asking your name, is this your first meeting, and so forth. If this happens, just tell them you're art, and this is your first meeting. That's the truth. It's no one's business why exactly your there.
If you wait to go in while other people are entering, you can get by the greeter with just saying "hi"
Then, you can just sit quietly and observe. Before launching in with interviewing and questions, just watch. You'll learn a lot.
You're not going to get anything much to blog about if you don't go.
Unless of course, you call a club, and some freaky person that's always hanging out there answers the phone.
That could be interesting.
