No, it's not really a date. Just a way to meet some really helpful people.
HOW DOES IT WORK? Okay. There are ten stations each manned by a sponsor who offers you a service. We put you in a group of ten, each of you starts at a different station. You spend three minutes finding out about your "date." Or telling them about yourself. Or asking for advice. Or cvetching. It's your three minutes. We let you know when 30 seconds remain, and then we let you know when three minutes are up and you have to move to the next station. As a thank you, your "date" will offer you a discount or special offer (these offers are given only to people who go through Speed Dating.) At the end of a thirty minute (approx) circuit, we bring in the next group of ten. While you're waiting, you can drink and socialize. Or primp for your date.

Meet, mingle, eat, drink and network with us. And what's this about "Speed Dating"? Is this a fix-up? Nah, it's nothing romantic. Is it an audition? Nah - no monolog slam, or need to be "on." You didn't even have to sign up for "Speed Dating" to party with us.
It's a chance to introduce yourself to our ten or eleven sponsoring hosts and spend three minutes getting to know each other before moving on. Just like real life. (Instead of flowers, our sponsors will woo you with special discount offers.) Click here for the lineup of sponsors pictured on this page.
