"Members will pay a $2 fee when they reserve a spot at your event."
So what are the most realistic options for meetup.com alternatives?
It does what we need and we haven't been actively developing or promoting it recently, but it has still grown organically to around 10K users and multiple meetups organized each month. We are likely to put more resources into it given the recent changes at Meetup.com. Worth adding that the service is free both to organizers and attendees; our long term plan is to have the same business model as Stack Overflow by promoting relevant jobs to members.
I also posted this as a Show HN and you can find more info in the comments on that post: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=21261397
They allow you to create your free meetup events and do not charge your attendees unless you want to. They provide you a lot of similar perks as Meetup with a database of 6M event seekers and 250M published events every month.
You can use your already built fanbase on Meetup.com on AllEvents.in. Use Meetup.com to attract the audience and ask them to RSVP or register for your free meetup on AllEvents.in. This way you will be able to migrate your meetup community easily.

I’d love to build the replacement for this site.
