The Deal

  • $199 for one full year of speed-dating events (up to $1,000 value)

Groupon customers get access to a full year of speed-dating sessions, which take place at a variety of bars and restaurants throughout DC and are organized by categories such as age, religion, and hobbies. To keep things fun and relaxed, organizers host pre- and post-session mixers with a cash bar—check out Professionals in the City’s Today Show appearance to learn more, and see the calendar for upcoming events.

Professionals in the City

Seeing that DC’s professional community was in need of organized, after-work events where relaxed socializing and networking could transpire, Michael Karlan founded Professionals in the City as a unique way of uniting the community through newly forged romantic and business connections. His company's rapid-fire approach to building rapports was recently featured on the Today Show, due to its ability to quickly connect its 200,000 members at more than 1,000 events. Appropriate for singles, the romantically attached, or those accidentally attached by Velcro, the events range from intimate happy hours and theme parties to teeming galas and tours.

Speed-dating sessions move at a brisk clip in DC's most buzz-worthy bars and restaurants, where professionals are sequestered into congruous categories according to age, religious inclination, and sneaker-brand preference. Ideal for out-of-towners or patrons with first-date jitters, swift dialogue offers the chance to bypass awkward moments, and within 48 hours after events, an online-dating system connects pairs that clicked. Along with speed events, Professionals in the City also hosts outdoorsy outings, speed networking events, and a dating-centric lecture series to keep its members active, connected, and well-informed.
