How do you make friends/network as a working adult?

I m trying to expand my network for both professional advancement and personal pleasure. I have been using Linkedin to network with other professionals but i feel like the connection is not genuine. I want to get to know people, like how we made friends during school, not just talking for like an hour just to get a job. I would like to make new friends to eat out with, to share our hobbies/ interest and overall, just to hang out and expand our circles. My job is mostly remote, so I only meet my coworkers every once in a while and doesn’t have a great connection with them. I would love to know how is everyone approaching this. Tips and tricks are also appreciated!
