How I'm Making New Friends after Moving to a New City

In the 626 area code, Meetup.com has numerous meetup groups.  I have recently joined a network of board gamers where geeks like me can hang out and play board games.  At these meetups, a lot of people come together with the determination of having fun and meeting new people.  One couple came to me and said that they met through meetup and eventually got married.  Another couple was handing out wedding invitations.  It was crazy interesting to note that people actually hook up here.  Regular people of all races, different backgrounds, different occupations all converging to one location to eat and have fun.  It makes for a really great time!  I'm so glad to go.  So far the meetups I've participated in:

-Crazy Rich Asians Dumpling Party
-Steak Night at Steve's with Karaoke
-Taco Night at Steve's with Board Gaming
-Board gaming at Bruce's (when I arrived, I was surprised to find out that it was my upstairs neighbor!!!)
-Board Gaming at Tony's Potluck Halloween Party
-Salsa Dancing Lessons

Good times!
