Branching off from a parent company featured on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters and Rate the Date, SpeedLA Gay Date kindles same-sex romances with rapid-fire date nights helmed by quick-witted British hosts. Gents arrive at various LA hot spots 30 minutes prior to events to allow cosmetologists to perform a complimentary spiffing up, which might include moisturizer and a light lip balm or brow gel, or the application of a face tattoo in the form of cell-phone numbers. Gourmet hors d’oeuvres circulate among couples who swap seats every seven to eight minutes, allowing attendees to build rapport with up to 30 potential paramours.
Ice Breaker cards placed at each table provide fillers for any pauses that may punctuate daters’ conversations or keynote speeches, and the evening of mingling culminates in speedsters jotting down crushes on Date-Mate scorecards. Staffers note mutual attractions and email duos their matches, including first names and email addresses, within 24 hours. Customers can choose their event online and make reservations via email.
