I'm "from" Raleigh,  but I've been away at school for 3 years and am moving back this summer... So, I basically know no one that lives in Raleigh anymore (apart from a few entirely TOO rocka-silly people)-- Anyone know of good places to meet cool people (college age, but I think most of us on here probably are...).

I've lived here for less than a year, and most of the people I know here are from my or my boyfriend's jobs. Smiley  Buut, I did take a watercolor at the Durham arts council (http://www.durhamarts.org) last year, which was interesting, and they also offer swing dancing at the YWCA.  Both of those were a mix of ages (majority over 40 year olds).  I'm not really aware of anything like that that is exclusively for college age/20-somethings.  

You can always hit the bars. Smiley  I think that goes beyond crafty discussion though!

Haha, yeh. I guess I was more wondering if there were any specific hang outs people on here went to or knew of---   I'm not much of a drinker so bars are out, and... my parents are 40 somethings, so that gets a bit awkward, haha. My sister took classes at the Arts Council when she was little. I'm going to try to get into a sewing class but it depends on my work schedule- have to get a job first. I guess it'll be me and a book most days I'm not down here visiting the old man. Ah well. ^.^ I can always play dress up, right?

Actually, now that I think of it, Cup a Joe (2 locations near NC State) usually has a good amount of young people hanging out.  I'm not sure if it dies down in the summer though.  
I'm thinking about taking one of those crafty-type classes at Michael's, but I'm sure the classes are inundated with Soccer Moms!  I found a class at Scrapbook plaza for 20-somethings (http://www.scrapbookplaza.com/workshopdescriptions.htm#20%20Somethings)  but I don't see it on the calendar.  If I see it come up, I'll post again.

well, i'm not a 20-something (..more like a.. uh.. 16.  haha.) but i know that there's always a lot of college aged kids on hillsborough street.  pretty much a lot of stuff there is real close to the nc state campus, and a lot of them walk a lot.  there's a really neat vintage clothes store across the street from the blue flame tatoo place.. and if you don't know where that is, it's under the BIG YELLOW TRACTOR billboard.  haha!  and if you haven't experienced it yet, go to Gumby's pizza.  it's the best!

also, there's a book store (Nice Price Bookstore) and it's really great.  i get all my records there for my bowls and clocks (i haven't found anywhere else with reasonably priced records.. and ones that are colored.)

anywho - hope i helped!
