Are there any climbing areas in the southeast where it is easy to show up and find partners, esp weekdays, in TN, NC, VA, WV?
I know about the RRG in KY

You could try The Lilly Pad Hopyard Brewery/Campground in the Obed, TN. Del and Marte are the owners and they're really nice. I bet if you asked around at their place you'd find someone.

Last resort you could skip climbing and drink beer and play cornhole with the locals.

I  have never had trouble finding partners at New River Gorge. Get to the parking lot early and wait for a party of three to show up and then strike up a conversation. Picking a place that also has bouldering is also helpful because if partners don't work out you can have a great day of bouldering. I am sure at AAC campground at NRG you won't have any trouble finding a partners.  Good luck.

Chattanooga has the Crash Pad, have heard that's a great place to find people in the evenings.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
