Group Dinner Date for professionals in their 30's

  • Apr 22, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This table is FULL!

Please- fill out an application to be on our list for the next 30's event. If you already have an application on file- great! I'll get you in on a matchmakers table date asap!

Dine, friend & flirt with 8 to 10 singles especially chosen for you to dine with at this matchmaker selected dinner group.

Join us at this sleek and chic Italian restaurant in the West Loop for appetizers, dinner & dessert.

Meet interesting young professionals from Chicago who are also in their 30's.


You'll be seated with 7-9 other singles in a similar age range, goals or background. You'll be dining with an even ratio of men to women.

Mingle Around will sort through our dinner applications to put the best table of 8-10 together! You'll have the chance to meet potential business contacts, new friends and potential dates.

To Join Us

This isn't just a group of random people thrown together! We strive to put together 8-10 people just like you with similar interests, ages and goals. Singles will be hand selected to dine together.

If you are interested in tonight's dinner event please go ahead and RSVP on the wait list. We need to have a dinner "application" on file for you, so please fill out. If your background, age and interests match up with the other 7 guests, you'll be emailed an official invitation, an invoice and then confirmation.


What to expect:

The night before

Check your email! You'll receive a table roster with the names and a brief background of each of your dining partners. This gives you some time to plan out conversational topics that might be interesting to you. Also included in the email will be any pertinent dining information including parking and public transportation routes. Don't worry, personal information such as last names, address, emails, phone numbers, places of work will not be given out.

The Dining Event

Arrive to the restaurant 15 minutes before your dinner time. This will allow plenty of time to find parking, grab a drink at the bar and check in with the hostess. The hostess will seat you at "Jill Jackson's" table. No need to state you're with a meetup group. Each seat will have a small "Reserved For" name tag, find yours and let the dinner begin!

You'll be able to order off the menu and will be paying for your own meal. The server will give each diner a separate check and yes, the server's tip will be included with your check.

A complimentary sharable appetizer will be provided by Vivo, so while your taste buds are exploring this amazing Italian cuisine, you'll have the chance to look over the menu and your dining partners.

Men will rotate seats twice during the dinner, giving everyone a better chance to meet each other and you a chance to seat near each of the hotties!

Mingle Cards will also be at each seat. If you find yourself interested in someone at the table, don't be shy, fill out a Mingle Card and hand it out or just do it the old fashioned way and ask for her number!

Please note- the RSVP system with "Meetup" does not allow me to pre-screen, therefore RSVP's are open to all. You are only secured for this event with payment and a personal confirmation letter from me (Jill Jackson). The RSVP's you see on this webpage is NOT accurate by any means, it only shows a few people who are "interested" in the event, not necessarily who is going. We advertise and sell tickets on the official MingleAround site, yelp, facebook and a few other singles sites.

Legal Stuff:
By RSVP'ing "Yes", you and your guest(s) are accepting the terms to the Release and Hold Harmless Agreement set forth by Mingle Around INC.

    It was fun, really didn't need to play musical chairs. It was ideal to have a small group as you didn't have to play musical chairs to talk to others.

    Hi Jill, Chuck. After getting the email that a spot opened up & following Chuck's direction to re-RSVP, my RSVP moved from "waiting list" to "Yes". But I also just read Jill's comment that she can only fit 8/10 people. So, if I go ahead and pay will I be added to the attending list or should I wait till next event? Just wondering if you already have the number of people you can fit in while I was on the "waiting list." Thx!

      Hi, Meetup automatically does that- sends an email stayting that the list is open. This is why meetup drives me crazy! I sold out of the spots for this event, so Grace- I will try to get you into the next event!

      Ok

      April 18, 2013

  • Mingle Around C.

    Ok, so Chuck is my new favorite person- thank you for answering so many of the questions! I've been out of town visiting family last week, and didn't have great internet access.
    If you PAID (I sent you an invoice) you are SET and COMING!
    If you have not paid/have not recieved invoice- you are NOT coming to this event- but I will get you involved in future tables. Do NOT even look at the RSVPs/wait list on this site- it's all screwy. I'm going to have to look into a better way so it's less confusing for people in the future. We WILL be doing this event in the future as it's been very popular. (We'll be doing this a few times a month for this age range!)

      Actually, I've held the position of Jill's favorite person before, but there's little job security and a high rate of nepotism.

    Mingle is trying something new with this folks. Its supposed to be a little exclusive and allow Jill to show off her stellar matchmaking abilities. As this is a popular event, FOR THOSE THAT ARE NOT CHOSEN, I will personally lobby Jill to allow me to run one more of these in the future. Worry not.

    April 17, 2013

    • Mingle Around C.

      We will host more. I promise. I can only fit 8/10 at a table- so this first event is rough!

    I got an email saying a spot just opened up how do I sign up?

    April 16, 2013

    • Chuck R.

      Grace, if it's the correct email, you can attempt to RSVP as attending. Make sure it's specifically for this dinner though, as Jill has these events running for other age groups.

    Hi Jill I would love To attend but I'm on the waiting list. When/how do we know if we are confirmed for the event?

    • Chuck R.

      Hi Grace, I know Jill has been working on it. I'm sure she'll tell people what's going on soon :)

      Ok, my $20 is ready! thx.

      April 16, 2013

  • Jennifer C.

    Do we just pay at the door?

    April 15, 2013

    • Chuck R.

      Hey Jennifer, there are payment instructions written above, but it looks like Jill wants people to pay the $20 as soon as they receive the separate invitation email. That, along with the email, will secure your seat for the event.

    This is a great idea! Let me know when you do it for the 40's !

    Sounds fun but I have plans that night. Are you going to do a second one like with the 40's?

    April 3, 2013

    • Mingle Around C.

      Yes, I just posted. We'll do each monday a different age group, and keep rotating restaurants as well as age/niche groups. Hope to see you soon!
