Safest Way to Meet New Friends: Masked Face-to-Face Speed Dating Party Start Date: Sunday 7/19/2020 — End Date: Sunday 7/19/2020 Admission:25-30 While nothing is 100% safe, experts all agree that face-to-face socializing is safest when four precautions are taken: 1. Outdoors. A study of 6,000 Covid-19 positive people in China revealed that only one of the 6,000 is believed to have contracted the virus outdoors! 2. Masked. We provide free masks and require they be worn in order to be admitted to our speed dating parties. 3. Social distancing. Tables are spaced apart. 4. Limited Exposure. With speed dating you only interact with the same person for 5 minutes.

Our party is on the lovely and spacious back patio, with social distancing. Free parking! TICKETS: $25/Advance or $30/Door (If space permits), per session. We recommend you prepay on, as some sections are likely to sell out. We especially need men 45-60. That age group always sells out early for women (women please DON’T sign up for the men’s section, as that destroys the male-female balance!) Food and drink available at additional cost. PLEASE NOTE: We don’t have a 60+ section because unfortunately most men over 60 will not speed date with women their own age. A sad fact of life, nothing we can do about it.
