***UPDATE! Our party has moved to the 8th floor. (Was at Prohibit on lower level, we are now located t the nightclub/penthouse "NV" portion on the 8th floor. Same location, different name/floor.)
Update 1- Sold out for women! Men- purchase now so I can let more women in off the wait list!
An afterwork Speed Mingling Hour in River North... come try out a new theme & help us work out the kinks! Major discount for your feedback!
Very few tickets available. You must purchase a ticket online- not at the door. An RSVP on meetup is great, but you must CONFIRM by purchasing a ticket online. Don't forget- we sell tickets on 3 different websites so you'll meet many more people than just "Meetup" people.
Estimated age range women 35+ men 38+

The twist is that this event is more organic and free flowing.
Think of the game musical chairs...every few minutes our host will indicate that it's time to meet a new person- this is when you part ways with the person to whom you're chatting with and find a new potential date and connect. You can connect with anyone whom you wish. The only rule is that you can't connect with the same person more than once during the hour, and you have to connect with someone every round!
7:00- 7:30 Check in & icebreaker
7:30- 8:30 Speed Mingling hour
8:30- 9:00 Turn in interest cards
9:00-10:00 Casual mingling
• If we have an uneven number of people, there is a chance you'll be able to cozy up to the bar, the hostess or even make your way into a "three way" conversation! (please, no dirty thoughts here, I just can't think of a better way to describe it!)
• Yes, you can hand out business cards or give out your contact information during the event. I don't mind if you hand out your card to every person in the room. What you can't do is ask others for their contact info. (You'll find out if they honestly wanted to give it to you after the event is over!)
• After an hour of quick introductions you'll let our host know whom you are interested in meeting again for a real date. Heads up, you won't be able to meet everyone during the mingling hour for mini dates, so try to chat with anyone you missed during the rest of the evening. You'll also be able to update any changes or additions via email later in the evening.
• Just like typical speed dating; if the person or people you've selected have also selected you as their a match, you'll then receive their contact information within 24 hours, emailed to you from our host.
We will be at NV tonight. The romantic & swanky vibe will put you in the mood to flirt. NV only serves cocktails & bottled beer, they are not a full service restaurant. Please plan accordingly. The best plan would be to find a gal or guy to grab a bite to eat after the party!
Remember... chemistry isn't found online.
