Listing an Event
If you want to meet new people, and you work odd hours, message an event organizer on meetup to see if an event can be hosted at a time and place of your choosing! Most language and culture meetups are done as a hobby, and if you want to host an event that fits with an existing meetup, there is a good chance they will accommodate your wish.

Call ahead, limit the number of attendees to a respectable amount
Event Listing Services
Meetup.com is a popular event hosting service by WeWork t. It costs about $20 per month to host a meetup group. A lot of people new to town go to meetup.com to find new friends and get a root in a new community.
Facebook groups, Facebook is a more popular service than meetup. It has clutter.
Eventbrite -- if you charge admission this may work, or if
evite -- works well if you already have a group of people
Student clubs -- clubs at community colleges and universities can be supported with funds from the student fees. They really want to build a community at the schools, they can be cumbersome (I spent over an hour trying to get $20 worth of food for an event, and I figured that I should just donate snacks than waste my time filling out paperwork)
Stuff for the Organizer to bring
Whiteboard -- for writing new vocabulary
Meetup Sign -- (if with meetup)
Spare pencils / pens
