In a city of 5+ million people it can be surprisingly hard to meet new friends. Fortunately we live in the future and there are helpful social tools on the web . Meetup.com has been useful to me in the past for professional networking. Perhaps it could help me meet some new folks that are into the same things as me. With that in mind I started a new group, Atlanta Adult Fans of LEGO.
I was surprised to get 10 people to join in the first weeks and a half. This prompted me to schedule a meetup at Mellow Mushroom in Sandy Springs. Two people joined me and we had a good time talking about LEGO, life, and other subjects while drinking beer and playing trivia. We had a good time and look forward to growing the group. We’ll see how it goes; so far so good.
