No, I would not say that. It sounds suspicious. I would assume you’re going to try to engage me in some weird topic I’m not interested in.
I would say, “How’s it going?” If you’re in the US, there’s probably a game on, so you’d normally comment on the game, “Who’s winning?” After that, you can say, I’m Simba, I’m not from around here. Any recommendations on ...good restaurant, etc.
