Dating can be like assembling the silver monkey in Legends of the Hidden Temple, a challenge requiring wits, luck, and passing knowledge of primate anatomy. Skip the confusing steps of pickup artistry with today's icebreaking Groupon: for $20, you get admission to any SpeedLA Dating event occurring over the next 12 months (a $49 value). Events are held at locations throughout the Los Angeles and West Hollywood area and are suggested for ages 2142.
The British, Bravo-approved SpeedLA Dating assists aspiring romantics with two-hour bouts of sophisticated speed dating. Each session consists of groups of 36 or fewer, gathering in chic, low-key venues for striking conversation and stimulating appetizers. British hosts guide guests through the entryway of a moodily lit Los Angeles or West Hollywood locale to begin striking chords with 18 singles of the opposite sex in the hopes that a playful rendition of Dueling Banjos develops between heartstrings. After the staff seats each lady at her own secluded table, gentlemen jaunt from gal to gal, spending seven to eight minutes with each potential partner. Conversation is stimulated through cheeky icebreakers and gourmet appetizers that circulate around the room like wayward geese trapped in the earth's orbit. Following 120 minutes of matchmaking, participants wax poetic about date-mates on a provided card and check their email 24 hours later to see if a match has been made.
Like the BBC News and the definition of chips, SpeedLA Dating offers a British spin on familiar American tropes. The speed-dating sessions eschew noisy whistles and impersonal nametags for civilized conclusions to conversation and an email about fellow attendees prior to the event. Chic consultants also provide free makeovers for ladies 30 minutes before each event, ensuring lasses look their best. Click here to view SpeedLAs Facebook for more details.
