How to throw a speed dating party
Today I am, because I make the rules and I can change them if I want to. Uh, because I went speed dating this week, and chances are, you're probably curious about what that is/whether it was fun and if you should try it, and I've got your back. (Note: I've taken measures to protect the some of the innocent, stupid, and/or ridiculous people I met last night.
Also, this story involves complete strangers, and therefore, is unlikely to come back to haunt me.
A bell sounds after five minutes and you record on your Speeding Ticket if you would like to meet the person again.
Girls stay seated and the guys move to the next table until you have met everyone.
On arrival at your chosen Speed Dating event you will be welcomed by a Speed Date representative and given a name badge & a complimentary drink voucher.
Feel free to mingle at the bar before the Speed Dating starts at pm sharp.
In column 1, you wrote the number of the guy you're dating, in column 2 his name, and in column 3, what you ranked him on scale from "" (no joke, it said that on the scale).
Then you are straight into the exciting world of Speed Dating with your first date of the evening.
Fast Forward to last night: My girlfriends and I show up to Xino in Santa Monica, dressed up, and ready to make snap judgments about the eligibility of strange men.
We were each assigned a number and given a card with three columns printed on it.
The host will wrap up the evening by explaining the matching system, get everyone to finish completing their Speeding Tickets before collecting them.
Afterwards, feel free to mingle and continue those conversations that were cut short!
On Sunday, July 10th, 2010 we had our annual Summer Singles Party at The Delancey's tropical themed Rooftop Bar, at 168 Delancey Street.
