Ticket to Ride is great standby to break out on nongamers. Power Grid, Dominion, Battlestar Galactica are all good also. Who am I kidding, I like most all of them.
I really love this hobby! Been an Atlanta gamer for a pretty long time now.
Don't be afraid to show up at events and approach people playing games. If everyone seems busy, eventually a game will end and people will be looking for more players! If you are new to these types of games, let the other players know while the game is being chosen. Before starting, you may want to ask how long the game is going to take.
