Which Alcoholics Anonymous meeting is best for a newcomer?

I have recently decided that my drinking is out of control and I need help to deal with it. After weighing my options I think AA is the best choice at this time. I have a list of meetings in my area but there are so many different types listed I'm not sure which is best for a beginner. Steps/Traditions? As Bill Sees It? Open Discussion? Closed? There are one or two meetings specifically for beginners but they are a bit further away from me than I can manage right now. I need something close by or I won't be able to get there on a regular basis. I know that anyone with a desire to stop drinking is welcome at any AA meeting but is there any particular type that I would be better off approaching?
