4 Minute Dating!!

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

UPDATE #8: As a reminder, and as mentioned in the event posting in bold, this event tends to be loud during the "dating" portion of the event. So please rest your voice and your ears. Also as a reminder, and also mentioned in the event posting in bold, we will only "date" for the first hour, so we will not get to "date" everyone. However we still have the next hour to meet others during the "open social" portion of the event for the hour following that. Please account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays, and please arrive on time. See you there!

UPDATE #7: There are still 2 spots left for women, so you may claim a spot by coming to the door with exact cash.  For both men and women, I also anticipate a few no shows, so if you'd like to come and "fly standby," you may...  just come early with exact cash!

UPDATE #6: Drink specials are $4 Corona, $5 30s & 40s Superstar drinks, and $6 house wine!

UPDATE #5: The hold on women spots has been lifted. Go ahead and sign up!

UPDATE #4: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $25. Looking forward to seeing you there! 

UPDATE #3: We've been able to extend the early bird price! The first 50 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Thurs. Feb. 20th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $25.

UPDATE #2: Women spots are temporarily filled. We need a few more men to keep the ratio balanced. Women please do not sign up and make payment until we balance out the ratio.

UPDATE #1: There are 9 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $20 to $25 when the early bird spots are gone or before Sun. Feb. 16th (whichever comes first). 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 Fri. Feb. 7th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot. I hope to see you there!

This one's for the singles in our group!

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

From 6 - 6:30pm we will check in, 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. Please be ON TIME! After check-in at 6:45pm, for the first hour, we will rotate every 4 minutes and meet over a dozen new single friends. Please note we will not get to "date" everyone, however we still have the next hour to meet others during the "open social" portion of the event. We'll then write down the unique number of those we'd like to see again and hand the card back in. (The following week 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 during an "open social" 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, Lost Society exudes a Victorian feel with a modern twist, and is a pleasant and friendly setting for us to interact.

Please note the men-to-women signup ratio will be at or near 50:50. Come event time, sometimes we have no shows, which means there may be more of one sex 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.

Also, please note with everyone talking at the same time during the "dating" portion of this event, this event tends to be loud.  So please rest your voice and your ears!

We've got an early bird special for this event of $20! The first 50 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Sun. Feb. 16th get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $25. Secure your slot by rsvping yes AND making payment!

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.

Come join us as we spend a great evening amongst other singles from our group!

Metro and Parking

The closest Metro is U Street (Green / Yellow Lines). We suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. We also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):

Please follow the instructions below for making payment (if payment by smartphone doesn't work, please try your computer). Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Most of our events do sell out, so we recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.

1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?"

2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "Finish RSVP"

3. Click "Pay Now" at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person

4. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button

5. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"

6. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

Event Check-in

We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

Refund Policy & Ticket Resell

Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else (same sex only) if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and send us an email letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person 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, or the email went into your spam folder (please check it!). Good luck, and I hope to see you at the next event!

    I am not going to attend and would like to sell my ticket. I've had laryngitis and it is not enough improved to attend. How do I go about selling the ticket? I paid $20.

    • Susanna

      Is there a waiting list for women? Will you(J.T.) post when the women spots are open again? I am relieved that you have about an even ratio between the sexes.
