Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?

Although classed as "expat groups" the majority of members of most of the associations in Istanbul are Turkish and therefore represent a great way for building a social network. The Mother and Child Education Foundation (MOCEF) implements free literacy courses for women in Istanbul and the Lions Group is a Turkish organization aimed at raising money for charity.  There is also an Istanbul Rotary Club.
