Go to the pub.  If you do it tomorrow you'll be there to watch the first game of the season.

Lucky bugger.

You can try
  * A sport club
  * Something like a cooking class, painting class, music class. It's not only to learn things, it's also a good way to socialize
  * An English corner, even if you're fluent in English, or native speaker. People are willing to speak there, and they try very hard to fight their lack of self-confidence. Mostly twenty-something people there, I think.

If you really have no time at all for anything but work, you might consider doing something to have time first.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
