If you are going to a club or a meeting, it helps to check online and on the event's page about the people that are going and touch base with a few of them.

When you arrive at the event venue, you can meet those persons and can avoid loitering alone there.

Put the effort to connect

It pays off eventually. Efforts to connect may not pay off right there and then,  or even in a fair way, but they do pay off.

Even if this effort pays off half the time, it is worth it.

Follow the Fun

When you get to a new place, ask yourself: "If I lived here, where would I go?" Look for cool events, gigs, and shows.
