Breaking the ice with a potential sweetheart can be a daunting task, especially when that sweetheart is cryogenically frozen. Defrost a more relaxed interaction with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get one ticket to the Let’s Play - “Play or Get Played” singles’ networking event at SideBAR, presented by iAdventure.com (a $45 value).

- A rotating selection of appetizers from 7–8 p.m.

iAdventure.com’s jovial Let’s Play - “Play or Get Played” event invites adults to brush elbows with fellow singles and socialize through classic board games in SideBAR’s upscale sports-bar atmosphere. A charismatic master of ceremonies pilots the three-hour outing, jump-starting friendly competition between potential love interests and head butting rams. To begin the evening, heartthrobs flock to the open bar to imbibe liquid courage in the form of complimentary well cocktails and Bud Light drafts. Participants also prevent tummy grumbles from budding into fruitful conversations with appetizers such as six-layer nachos and wings from SideBAR’s menu. As the night wears on, guests flex their conversational skills and engage their counterparts in light-hearted bouts of Uno, Connect Four, and Hungry Hungry Sea Sponges. Play or Get Played also enters each visitor into a raffle to win a copy of Drinkopoly—a board game designed to encourage fun, social, and responsible drinking.
