If you are from the Northeast / East Coast of the U.S., if you have lived there, went to college back east, or simply visited there and liked it, then this group is for you! Whether you are new to the Houston area and trying to get acclimated, or whether you have been here 20 years and still occasionally get homesick, we aim to provide you with a social outlet of like-minded people.
What is the East Coast?
The East Coast is comprised of U.S. states that are along the Atlantic Ocean/Eastern seaboard, from as far north as Maine to as far south as Florida. The focus of this group is the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Whether you are from the Northeast (New York and the New England states (Connecticut, Massachusets, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine) The Mid-Atlantic (Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware) or the DC area/DMV(Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, District of Columbia), you are welcome here!
What do we do?
Anything you want! From lunches and dinner sat restaurants that specialize in cuisine of an East Coast city (New York Delis, Philadelphia cheeststeaks and hoagies, Carolina barbecue joints, etc.) or a dominant ethnic group on the East Cost (Italian, Irish, Jewish, Caribbean, etc.), to movies and plays that take place in a particular East Coast city or state, to East Coast Potluck parties, to outings at Sports Bars or members' homes to watch our favorite East Coast teams compete, to dances of a particular region (from New England Contra dancing to the Bristol Stomp), we do it all!
New to Houston? We also do touristy sight-seeing events to help you discover Houston and all it has to offer.
Want to suggest or host an event? This group is for YOU, so please participate and don't hesitate!
Where are the meetups located?
We aim to serve the entire Houston metro area. If you don't see an event in your area, feel free to host or suggest one. You can also ask for a carpool buddy if you want to attend something far away from you.
Keeping in touch online in between meetups:
We know you are busy and can't always attend every event. That's why we have 2 ways for you to communicate with other members online:
1) The email list: send a message to email@example.com and it will go to everyone on the list who has chosen to receive emails. (If you don't want to receive group emails, you can edit your email settings by clicking on "account" on the top right-hand side of the meetup page.
2) The Message Board: Go to the top of our meetup group's page and click on "discussions", then "message board". Here you will see several message forums where you can post about events, your home state, ask for advice on living in Houston, etc.
THANKS AGAIN FOR JOINING! Glad to have you here!
