Wine Down Wednesday THE SPEED DATING EDITION @ The Olive Room
It's SAFE, FUN, & FAST!!
No more personal ads, blind dates or bar scene pick-ups. Where else can you meet a dozen or more people at one time who are there for the same reason you are?
“Speed Dating" events are a modern way to bring single professionals together in casual, fun and pressure-free environments. Everyone's been talking about it, and you've probably seen the concept on popular TV shows such as Sex and The City and in the movie Hitch.
Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before the official start time to sign-in and mingle. We will begin promptly at 6:00pm.
The Waiting List: To ensure an even balance of 10 men and 10 women, if you do not sign in at least 15 minutes before the event starts, your spot will be given to the top name on the waiting list.
If you are on the waiting list, we ask that you arrive 30-45 minutes before the start time and let us know that you are present. (We may also contact you before the event if we receive a cancellation.)
Be polite and respectful
Do not disclose your last name, where you live or work, phone number, email address, or commit to a date.
Do not let any of your dates know whether or not you chose them.
The men move, and the women stay seated.
No skipping of dates.
Only ten dates.
At the start of the event, everyone puts on a nametag with only your first name and a number. The event is organized so that you will chat, ask questions, and check out the chemistry with everyone in a string of one-on-one conversations lasting 5 minutes each. At the end of the 5 minutes, a bell will ring, and you will have 1 minute to fill out your “Score Card” as to whether you would like to see that person again in the future. The men will then move to the next seat.
The process continues until everyone has met. When all the men have met all the women, you hand in your completed “Score Card” to the host. The event itself will last for about an hour and a half.
After the event, we will compile the information from everyone's Score Cards to determine who matches up. If two people mutually checked “YES,” then that's a match (odds are you'll have one or more matches). You'll receive a private e-mail within three days of the event listing the first names and e-mail addresses or phone numbers of the people you matched with.
If you have any questions please contact Chelsa Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
