Does anyone else have these sorts of meetups with their coworkers to get on the same page knowledge-wise? If so, how are they typically structured?

Yes! I ran a monthly meeting at my company where we have people (who signed up ahead) present some technology or technique they’re excited about. Walk-ins are welcome of course. The meeting is really rejuvenating for me (who thrives on teaching), and I often end up learning something myself. :)
My team has a weekly "Tech Forum" where one of us will get up and present a topic. It can be a component we're using or working on, something another team is working on, some tech topic, or just to discuss our process and how to improve.
Some of our best discussions as a team were at those forums.
Thats great to hear! I talked about doing something similar with my boss after posting this and he was all about it. He even suggested we go offsite to a coffeeshop so we don't have any distractions.
