Where are all the Expats? (Ho Chi Minh City)


Hi Everyone,
I just got here from Antalya, Turkey. I was there 2 years. Beautiful place. Now I'm in Vietnam. So where do the expats hang out at? In Antalya we had a great website called and that is how we all met and went on excursions/trips/bar nights, etc. together. Of course local Turks were included.
I've googled and googled something similar for Ho Chi Minh/Saigon and found nothing. So what's up here?
Where does everyone hang out? I'm staying in a tourist slum, the backpacker area, and it's rather bleak. Haven't met any locals other than Vietnamese tourist workers. They're nice but...
Is there a local watering hole you all go to on Friday night? Or a pub quiz night?
Well, hopefully I get to meet some of you!
