Seeking connections from home

The Charlotte region is full of transplants, and many of them are hungry for ways to meet people from their hometowns or home states.

I learned this after my recent post with a question from a reader wondering where she could find Chicagoans gathering around here. I’ve compiled an answer to that, and it’s scheduled to run in Monday’s Your Week section in the Observer. I’ve also written previously about places to find people from the Buffalo and upstate New York areas.

Meanwhile, I’ve gotten inquiries from others wondering where in the Charlotte area they can go to meet people from New Jersey, the Washington D.C. area and New Orleans, among others.

So, I’m planning to compile a list of as many groups for transplants or transplant-friendly bars, restaurants and other gathering spots as I can, and I’ll follow up here and in the paper. If you know of any, please drop me an e-mail at Ldyer@charlotteobserver.com.
