** We offer a satisfaction gaurantee, no risk, no questions asked refund policy. Your Pre-pay online is safe. If you need a refund any time before the day of the event, simply email Matt and your Pre-pay will be fully refunded.

How to find us? : We will be wearing nametags including the Host. Also, if you get lost or have a hard time finding us feel free to give me a call please. I will make sure you find your way.

** Disclaimer about Late arrivals. Please arrive at Check In time. If you arrive after the Event Start time, we will not be able to put you into the event and not be able to refund your money if you have already paid. Adding another person after the Event Start time, disrupts the rotations and detracts everyone when meeting each other. This rule is in place to provide the highest quality experience for those who do show up on time so the event goes smoothly.

**Pre-paying is highly encouraged. It helps the host and the venue create the best experience possible. And helps us not to cancel our next upcoming event due to low turnout! We offer a low-risk pre-paying system. If you pre-pay you can get a refund up to the day before the event. See refund policy for more details.

Bring the following to the event : A pen and about 7 questions to ask your partner on a 3x5 notecard . **It's encouraged but if you do not have a pen or notecard please still come to the event. These supplies will be provided for those who forget to bring their supplies. We still want you!! See Event Details below for more information.

** Our events are usually at venues that are 21 and up where there are usually ID checks. Remember to bring your ID too before you leave home!!

How do I Dress?

The dress is casual. It will take place in the open area of the inside of a bar in most cases. Afterwards, people are free to mingle at the bar and get drinks, exchange numbers, and have a great time after.


If you know you will be running late or won't be attending, please call or email to let your host know as soon as possible. If you want to cancel your RSVP and you've already paid, let your host know at least 24 hours before the event or more. You will get a full-refund if you need to cancel your reservation(s) for our event and you let us know by this time. Also as soon as you know you may not be attending our event, please remember to Un-RSVP or you may not be invited back to Speed Friending Events in the future.

No refunds are given 24 hours or less before the event start date, even if a member lets the host know. This is because we have to spend hours well in advance preparing for all expected possible arrivals as well as we make special arrangements with our vendors to deliver you specials based on the number of event attendees. No shows affect our ability to offer you great drink and food specials in the future so we discourage any no shows.

If you have a pre-paid reservation, remember to tell your host you will not be attending and Un-RSVP online. Those who are unable to do this will be not be reimbursed and will be considered a 'no show'.

A paid reservation is considered a guaranteed reservation. We spend hours preparing for each of our events ahead of time we make sure to reserve a seat for you at the event as well as arrangements that must be made in advance such as having enough waitstaff to service our event which is based on the amount of attendees expected. Additionally, various supplies have to be prepared by the host before the event for each person expected to attend, since no shows have multiple impacts on making sure the event is successful and that everyone that attends has a great experience each time, if you make a reservation and pre-pay, you have secured a place for which no refund can be offered if you do not let us know about your cancellation in advance.

    The turnout was low but the weather sucked. We still had a great time and as usual Devon did a great job hosting. I look forward to next weeks event.

    Didn't have as many people as we hoped, about 12. But with the roads the way they were I am glad anyone showed up! The venue is nice, service was good, but I am not sure how easy it is to get there using public transportation. I always have a good time at these things, greatful dead cover band was actually really good!
