We wish we had known about the nonprofit Austin Newcomers Club when we moved here so many years ago without knowing a single soul. For an annual fee of only $30, immigrants to our sometimes insular city can take advantage of the many groups and activities the ANC organizes, like antique shopping, art gallery, theatre, film, and restaurant treks; book groups; card games and mahjongg; French and Spanish conversation groups, gardening, quilting, hiking, golf, tennis, and tap dancing, and that's just for starts. If your particular lifestyle/age group/hobby is not on their roster, no doubt they'll add it for you.
