It's pretty simple. We tend to get a better turnout for most of these events on a Wed or Thursday evening. From a logistics perspective attendance has been growing at Meetups, it is very hard to find places to eat that can accommodate a crowd of well dressed guys on a walk-in basis or who will be flexible about reservations. Most places I've contacted in the last year want a significant $$$ guarantee on weekends when I tell them we will have 20+. We can try an event on a Saturday evening in the future but I'll need some help in researching options for dinner that don't require a guarantee.
If you have any specific recommendations or wish to help in organizing future events, feel free to PM me. Suggestions are always welcome.
