Very well organized. I had fun. I would get another groupon. I told friends about it (Groupon and Professionals in the City).

The men have a clear disadvantage, as they lose about 30 seconds with each lady they meet to make a few memorable notes as they move from table to table. Maybe that I know how it works, I can overcome that obstacle the next time. Haven't even opened the e-mail I received with all the contact info. I'm quite glad I did this as its just one more thing achieved on the bucket list, which Groupon has motivated me to do.

Recently featured on the Today Show for its rapid-fire approach to building rapports, Professionals in the City quickly connects its 200,000 members at more than 1,000 events on its annual calendar. 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.

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.
