As Southern Californians, we are a diverse bunch but we share a common bond. We add "the" in front of every interstate name ("the 40")... in fact, we call all interstates "freeways". We are always on the hunt for good Mexican food. We really, REALLY wish we had In-N-Out Burger here, and BevMo! We know what "real" rush-hour traffic is like. We say "you guys" instead of "y'all". We love our adopted Tar Heel state, we marvel at how green it is, we adore all the trees, we enjoy having four seasons (though maybe not the humidity so much), and we love the people here. This is a social group that will get to know the Triangle even better. We will explore local attractions, seek out cool local restaurants, share common stories and enjoy good conversation. If you're a Southern Californian who is a newcomer or has lived in the Triangle for many years, we welcome you to join our group!
