What we're about


Feeling uncertain about your move, uncomfortable in this new city, or unaware of your emotional roll-a-coster and how to navigate traffic and the city?

New2ATL is a professional networking and social organization with support group efforts designed as a resource for newcomers to Metro Atlanta, who are looking to meet people, try new places and get involved in Metro Atlanta or surrounding counties. The third Thursday of each month, New2ATL hosts a social at a local restaurant or bar, where people mingle and meet other newcomers, as well as meet locals who provide insiders’ information to make the transition to ATL a smooth one. Where can I hear free music? Best food & drink specials on throughout the week? What about my stylist? Where do I get breakfast at 4am in the morning? While the group is primarily young group of diverse professionals, newcomers of all ages are welcome. Come find out why people are moving to ATL and why they can leave but almost always MAKE THEIR MARK.

Bowling etiquette: :-) Please be careful about RSVPing and then not showing up. No shows hurt the group as a whole. It's appreciated very much if you do not no show. 1. Upon arrival, Please choose a ball from one of the racks behind the lanes & bring it to the lane your bowling on, as the balls already there may be personally owned or were already chosen by other bowlers. 2. When on the lane ready to roll your bowl, Bowler on right goes first. Otherwise, it's too distracting when people next to you are bowling at the same time. 3. Street shoes are not allowed & bowling shoes must be worn & are included at no cost. 4. There are no name tags at this event, too dangerous if they were to fall off on the lane as you are bowling.
