San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
At this convivial flirt fling, you'll meet and mingle with digital dating whisperer Laurie Davis, author of the just-published Love at First Click: The Ultimate Guide to Online Dating, and founder of eFlirt Expert, an online dating consultancy that was named best dating coach in the 2012 and 2013 iDate Awards. Joining her is her "Tweetheart" (yes, they met online, flirting in 140 characters on Twitter), Thomas Edwards Jr., the founder of The Professional Wingman, a lifestyle strategy consultancy that helps clients develop social skills that transform their dating and professional lives.
Not only will you meet other singles looking for love -- or at least have a highly flirtatious evening out -- you could win your own personal “online/offline” dating makeover. Laurie will counsel one deserving woman on how to put her best pixel forward online, while Thomas will serve as your wingman to help one deserving man make all the right moves to find that "one." Laurie will also be signing copies of Love at First Click and one single will “get lucky” and win a copy. Two E will take the mystery out of where to treat your next date, with prizes of gift certificates to Two E Bar/Lounge and sister restaurant, Sirio Ristorante.
How do you enter to win? From now through Valentine’s Day tweet your best digital pick up line to @ThePierreNY or post on The Pierre’s Facebook page with the hashtag #EatDrinkFlirt. The most retweeted or shared pick-up line wins. As a bonus, the pithiest pick up line will win a copy of Love at First Click. If you’re better at live conversation openers, drop your business card in the Eat. Drink. Flirt. raffle box and test your luck.
