If you are in Los Angeles, and in the mood for some exciting night life, you are in for a treat. The city has lots in store for you and you can pick any style or ‘flavor’ you want -- you can explore and experiment to your heart's desire. If, however, you want to start slowly with something that is familiar to you, there are many ways to meet expats from your mother country or from other parts of the world, as well as the LA locals. Whether you feel like singing your heart out with Karaoke or chilling out at a jazz club alone, partying up with friends at a dance club or grabbing late night tapas with a nice glass of wine, you can always find plenty of choices. Check the Resources website often, since the nightlife scene changes very often and quickly.
Facebook: If you ever get home sick and crave for some conversation in your own language, Facebook provides a useful forum for finding your compatriots. For example, Brits in LA, has more than eight hundred British and American fans (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=22215942184&ref=ts).
