I don't know if this is a "Literary Hot Spot" but I go for a romance writer it is pretty cool. http://easttexasrwa.com/
It is Romance Writers of America's East Texas Chapter.
If anyone knows if there is something similar for sci-fi writers, that would be great. I drag my mother (murder/mystery writer) every month and my sister (who writes all things fantasy/sci-fi) will soon start tagging along.
