We are a combination of long time Charlottesville residents and new transplants, although the majority of people who attend are by far new residents, which is why this group was created. When I lived in Chicago a few years ago, I joined a meetup group and made some lifelong friendships. I figured I would try to do the same (and help others do the same) with this move. The group is designed to provide opportunities for people who are new to the area, to meet other people while enjoying the rich culture and fun activities that this city has to offer.
Our events have included dinners (lots of dinners), happy hours, wine tastings, hikes, 5Ks and 10Ks, weekend road trips to the beach or to DC, and anything else that is suggested (within reason of course ;) )
Please feel free to join us at one of our events to mingle and meet new people!
