For a person who is new to the DC-MD-VA between the ages of 18-21 and is more comfortable to a more laid back or intellectual crowd, where would be a good place for that person to hang out (Not only for DC, but anywhere in the area). I'm finding that many places in this area are either geared towards the teenage crowd or the adult crowd. Also, many other places in this area consist of crowds of people who already know each other (the better word for it may be "clicks"). To be honest, I was originally born in this area, but being forcefully raised in a county where being ignorant and "gangster" is the only way to be cool and meet people successfully (you know the county I'm talking about), I was very ostracized throughout high school. I'm not trying to make a sob story out of this, but if anyone would know where I could find a more social crowd of people in my age range, it would help for the time being.

Events at colleges, whether they me UMD, Georgetown, American, GW or Howard, are great ways to meet people your age and oftentimes they don't restrict those attending most events to students, or for maybe a small fee. This could take the form of joining a club (athletic, academic, ethnic, arts, etc.) that you're interested in, or simply attending some sort of academic lecture or other activity. Most student newspapers have online editions that you may want to browse through.
