Featured on such shows as Top Chef Masters and Bravo’s Rate the Date, SpeedBoston Dating’s swanky events bring cheeky British flirtatiousness to some of Boston’s premier venues for a fun and classy take on speed dating. Charismatic British hosts lead a unique dating procedure that eliminates stress and impersonal name tags, giving participants full license to amend their given names with honorifics such as “Doctor,” “Admiral,” or “ Television Fitness Personality.” Daters nibble on free gourmet appetizers as the host sparks conversation with flirtatious icebreakers. Once each suitor has had his six to seven minutes with each of the 10–30 women, everyone may stay to mingle as long as they please.
Post-event emails arrive in daters’ inboxes 24 hours later to alert participants of any other participants’ scorecards featuring their name, indicating interest and the desire to perform the traditional one-legged courtship dance. Certified cosmetologists encourage women to arrive 30 minutes before the appointed time to receive a complimentary makeover, and men should arrive 15 minutes early to allow ample time for the ceremonial powdering of wigs and donning of knickers. Events last approximately two hours including an intermission. This Groupon is valid for Valentine’s Day and special-occasion events.
