For $15, today's deal lets you attend a two-hour speed-dating event hosted by Professionals in the City (a $30 value). The fast-moving fêtes are held several times a week at various locations throughout the city.

Praised by recent DC Mayor Adrian Fenty for enhancing the quality of life for DC residents, Professionals in the City attracts masses of singles to its lively and relaxed speed-dating events, which target a diverse array of demographics, including baby boomers, Christians, and first-time speed-daters. Over the course of two hours, double-time daters engage in a multitude of short conversations in the company of other availables, tracking each encounter so that they can contact their favorite fish later on using Professionals in the City's fine-tuned carrier pigeon system. Like the confessions of operatic basses, sessions transpire in low-key, intimate environments, some of which feature before and after mixers with cash bars.

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.
