The need for speed
Attention local singletons! If you’re tired of perusing the personals in search of your soul mate, consider attending this speed-dating event sponsored by Cupid.com. Afraid that participating in such an event will make you a social leper? Nonsense; instead of viewing this as a desperate move to find the love of your life, look at it as a way to best utilize your precious time and money. For a mere $32—much cheaper than the average dinner-and-a-movie-date combo—you’ll get to go on up to 12 six-minute dates, a scenario in which first impressions are key. The event is broken into two age ranges: Those 38 to 50 speed into action at 6:30 p.m., while singletons 25 to 40 start the rotation at 8:30 p.m. Interested in attending? Register for the event at www.cupid.com/predating. The event is slated for this Tuesday at the Black Pearl, located at 2724 J Street. Happy hunting!
