If you're playing Horde, Silvermoon is a fairly active RP hub here. There's a lot more random walk up RP due to the lack of flying and a heavy BE population! There are several weekly events, and I know of at least 3 that occur in SMC on weekend evenings, plus a few RP guild IC meetings through the week. On Wednesdays, there's often a bar in Undercity. The events generally begin at around 7pm server time, though there are some later in the evening, like around 8 or 9; not sure.
Alliance side, there are various social events and a couple of open to public guild meetings. Most of the RP occurs in Stormwind, though you'll see some folks random RPing in our Shrine now and then. Tuesday and Friday there are events in/around the Mage District, on Thursdays there's a lore event in Ironforge's Hall of Explorers, and Wednesday and Sunday see 2 RP guild IC meetings in Cathedral District. Everything except the Sunday meeting starts at 7pm server time on the respective days (the Sunday meet is at 4pm).
Many, but not all, RPers use rp-haven.com as a way to meet other RPers, share stories, and promote RP events. I also encourage promoting events and sharing shorter, forum-rules-approved stories and character stuff here on the realm forum if possible; I haven't seen anyone bother RP posts at all, and reported posts are usually handled anyway.
Welcome to the server. I'm glad to see new roleplayers, on either side of the faction lines. Alynore pretty much hit the nail on the head. I welcome you to www.rp-haven.com to check out events, stories from the RPers on the server and more, and please, drop by as many events as possible.

I've found the best way to RP in-game is to just start talking to people. If you download the MRP addon, you can see who's big into RP and who's looking for contact. People will usually describe their characters with the addon, and it's pretty fun to see the different characters running around!
Our events are usually pretty active. Hope to see you around :)
