Today's side deal injects your dating life right in the heart with 150 c.c.'s of adrenaline, diluted with a dash of love. For $20, you get admission to a speed-dating event of your choice through Speed Dating Connections (a $40 value).
Speed Dating Connections' events occur at different and differently hip venues throughout Philadelphia, including Ladder 15, Pearl, Mad River Bar & Grill, Bleu Martini, Mission Grill, and more. Each event has a theme such as Single Professionals, Indian Singles, Older Single Professionals, and Benjamin Franklin lovers. Check the calendar for upcoming events that meet your schedule and tastes in age, ethnicity, and superpowers.
Once the potential paramours have assembled and registered, the first bell kicks off the first five-minute mini-date. Once that time is up, the gents rotate to the next table to flash-flirt with the next lady. At the end of the night, everyone hands in their match cards and the Speed Dating staff figures out which parties have both agreed to future Clothes Reduction Treaty talks. Within 24 hours, the Connection will supply you and your mutual attractor with the other's photo, contact information, and favorite kaiju monster. The Connection claims that it matches 75% of participants.
Speed dating is not only a fantastic way to break out of the typical tepid dating dynamic; it can also help you comfortably expand your comfort zone and play new fields—possibly finding Mr. or Mrs. Right where you might never have expected. Call ahead to reserve your spot at the Speed Dating Connections event of your choice.
