How do I Dress?
The dress is casual. It will take place in the open area of the inside of a bar in most cases. Afterwards, people are free to mingle at the bar and get drinks, exchange numbers, and have a great time after.
Event Details :
Our event will start promptly at the designated Event Start time. Please check in as close to Check In time as possible.
Each person sits in a chair across from a partner. Your partner may be a guy or girl. You get to ask your partner the questions you have brought to the event. Your partner responds. After you are both done responding to each other's questions, you switch partners.
You can ask any of the questions you brought...you can even steal other's questions! Make the questions fun, silly, thought-provoking or even like Miss America-type questions!
Here are some sample questions that you can ask your partner :
1) What would make you a good friend? What are your best qualities?
2) Would you rather eat pizza your entire life? Or not be able to tell a lie for a year?
3) What kind of comic book character best represents you?
4) Would you rather have the ability to fly? Or have the ability to breath underwater? Why?
Steer away from these type of questions :
1) What do you do for work?
2) How long have you lived in here?
3) What do you like most about this town?
Help us make these events successful by bringing your friends!
Okay, so I've made a new friend at the event. How do I follow up with someone I meet at the event?
You will be partnered with many people at the event. In order to keep the event moving along you should only get contact information from people you meet after the main Speed Friending Event is over. We have a social time right after the main event, which gives you plenty of time to naturally get to know someone.
The idea of the Event is that Speed Friending is a Giant Icebreaker for the group. Then afterward we all do something together, usually pool, chat over food, play games, sit around and talk. So after the main event is over, we all move to a separate location and have a social mixer to mingle immediately following the main event. At the mixer everyone openly mingles and exchanges contact information. And if you see someone you like and want to be friends with or get their number, just talk to them and simply ask for their number after the event, just like you would at any party, or other social setting. We are all looking for friends and new connections here.
Rules and Refund Policy:
We highly encourage you to pre-pay. This reserves you a seat, so your host can prepare your seat in advance and also be able to provide the best event possible for you each time!
**Please note that we pride ourselves in offering a low-risk pre-pay system. If you pre-pay for our next upcoming event in advance, know that we will work with you if you need a refund at anytime. We want you to feel safe pre-paying. And in return we want to offer you easy and quick refunds if any unexpected events in your life pop up. Just email us if you need a refund.
Our events are most successful when we have a lot of people attending, so our mission is to have around 30 people RSVP every time!!
We may cancel the event if we have 7 or less pre-pay and RSVP for our event. If we reschedule and you have already paid, shoot the host an email for a refund. If we cancel, any money will be refunded and we will create another event again next month!
Please sign up even if you see a waiting list!
We promise to move you into spots as they become available. We create waiting lists to ensure those who have already paid or RSVP'd early have an enjoyable and memorable time. RSVP's for all events are first come, first served.
Please call or email the host up to 72 hours before the event if you want to cancel your RSVP and you've already paid. You will get a full refund if you need to cancel your reservation(s) for our event and you let us know by this time.
If you make a reservation (or have a standing reservation) and do not attend, and you have already made a payment via PayPal, there will be no reimbursement if you do not attend. A paid reservation is considered a guaranteed reservation. We spend hours preparing for each of our events ahead of time we make sure to reserve a seat for you at the event as well as arrangements that must be made in advance such as having enough waitstaff to service our event which is based on the amount of attendees expected. Additionally, various supplies have to be prepared by the host before the event for each person expected to attend, since no shows have multiple impacts on making sure the event is successful and that everyone that attends has a great experience each time, if you make a reservation and pre-pay, you have secured a place for which no refund can be offered if you do not let us know about a cancellation in advance.
