Singles Mingle Events
Every few weeks, Singles Mingle Events stages another party at one of Raleigh's upscale restaurants and bars. But the company isn't celebrating anything in particular. The events are merely an opportunity for local singles to get to know each other. Sometimes they take the form of speed dating, but just as often they're simply laid-back cocktail hours, the kind of low-pressure gatherings where even shy guests can loosen up and have a good time. Of course, if you do find yourself feeling nervous in the lead-up to an event, you can always call on Vanessa Taylor, the company's resident dating coach.
