Boasting a membership of more than 80,000 North American singles, Meet Market Adventures offers free online dating, plus imaginative offline events. Shuck off your shyness with icebreaker games, dancing, and free hors d'oeuvres and drink specials at the Singles Mega Multi-Group Fall After Work Party, which takes place at one of New York's premier hotspots. The Singles Urban Race and Scavenger Hunt teams you up with three other people before sending you on a frenetic Benny Hill dash about town—creating ideal conditions for sparks and zero openings for awkward first-date silences. Otherwise, uncover a cute intellectual equal during Singles Pub Stumpers Trivia Night, or flirt with nostalgia over classic board games at Singles Games Night. Meet Market can also take the pressure off of finding a date for New Year's Eve with a blowout of more than 350 singles at chic STITCH Lounge. An Anti-Valentine's Day party, meanwhile, lets lovers of love and haters of Hallmark holidays boycott the execution of Saint Valentine with feng-shui love consultations, a live DJ, and free hors d'oeuvres and drinks. With admission to three events, participants will have plenty of chances to meet other singles, try out a new activity or venue in the city, and dust off decrepit datebooks that have long been relegated to doorstop status.
