4 Minute Dating!

  • Jun 25, 2011 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

*** It's a great day to meet other singles!  See you tonight! ***

UPDATE #2:  If you were unable to secure a spot for this event online, you have the option of "flying standby."  There are usually 3 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to get on board. Make sure to come early with exact cash.

UPDATE #1: The early bird price will increase from $20 to $25 before Monday, June 20th. To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Friday, June 17th.  So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot.

This one's for the singles in our group!

http://files.meetup.com/418742/dating%206.25.11.jpg

I've made special arrangements with The Barking Dog for this event. We'll each experience a dozen first dates in one evening with numerous single young professionals of the opposite sex.

At the beginning of the evening, we'll each receive a name tag with a unique number on it, as well as an index card on which we'll print our name, our unique number, and our email address. For the first hour, we will rotate every 4 minutes and meet over a dozen new single friends. We'll then write down the unique number of those we'd like to see again and hand the card back in. (In the next few days after the event, we'll receive an email with any mutual matches.)

After the dating portion, for the next hour, we'll still have the place reserved for us to mix, mingle, and get to know each other a little bit more at the bar, with drinks specials for our group only!

For those that haven't been there before, The Barking Dog is a great pub, which encourages a pleasant and friendly setting for us to interact. 21+

Please note the men-to-women signup ratio will be 50:50. Come event time, sometimes we have no shows, which means there may be more of one gender than the other (usually only a few). This means that some people may be on a "break" here and there. When this happens, we typically extend the speed dating portion of the event a few more rotations to make up for it.

We've got an early bird special for this event of only $20 (the price of 2 drinks at a club)! The first 30 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Monday, June 20th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, it will go up to $25. Secure your slot by rsvping yes AND making payment! Come join us as we spend a pleasant evening amongst other singles from our group!

Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.

- J.T.

Metro

Bethesda Metro is the nearest Metro stop (Red Line). I suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. I also recommend using wmata for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays.

Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):

  • Select "Count Me In" button above
  • Include the number of guests coming and agree to the refund policy
  • Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button
  • If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"
  • If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

Refund Policy

Since there are limited spots, all sales are final. Hopefully you understand we can't have people canceling and requesting a refund, when that spot could have been filled by others. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. Just work out payment between yourselves, and send us an email letting us know who will be taking your spot. Thanks for understanding. =)

    Matches have been sent out! Matches occur when both you and another person write each other?s numbers on your respective cards. If you did not hear from us, that means that you DID NOT have any matches. Good luck, and hope to see you at the next event!
