Announcing a new Meetup for The Seattle Night Life Meetup Group!

What: Speed Dating Benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

When: Thursday, March 18,[masked]:00 PM

2313 1st Ave
Seattle, WA 98121

We are still raising money for LLS and so many of you still want to try speed dating or do it again. Thank you all for your support and interest!!

Find a date and make some new friends during Speed Dating and Happy Hour at TWIST RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE benefitting a great cause - The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through Team in Training. ALL proceeds from this event will go towards the research and help of those battling blood cancers.

WHAT: Speed Dating benefiting The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
WHERE: Twist Restaurant and Lounge - Happy Hour food and drink prices from 6-11pm
WHEN: Thursday, March 18th
TIME: Doors open at 6:00 PM. SPEED DATING begins at 7:00 PM
COST: $15 for Speed Dating. $5 for just the Mixer/Happy Hour CASH or CHECK (made payable to LLS) ONLY

Come early as Speed Dating is on a first come first serve basis (numbers must be even ? men to women) and we had over 100 people show up at the last one!!! Gonna be late? Come by anytime just for the mixer!

AGE ? There will be two age groups 1) under 35 2) and over 35. I'm not carding anyone...you choose which group you'd like to date in. I wish I could do more groups but it's very difficult to arrange. Thanks for having fun with it!

HOW it works - not every Woman will go on a 'date' with every Man. Each participant will have a total of 10 dates ? Start with 5 dates lasting 5 minutes each with a minute to move on to the next (approx 30 minutes). There will then be a 20 minute break for drinks and food, followed by the final 5 dates. This time the MEN will remain at their seats and women will rotate to the next table. Didn't get a chance to have a date with someone who caught your eye - no worries. Happy hour will continue until 11 PM, so there is plenty of time to mingle. Speed dating should be completed by 9:00, Happy Hour goes until 11.

PRIVACY: Upon registration, each person will be given a "Date Card" at the beginning of the night and after you complete your dates, you will turn that card in to Host, and only those people that MUTUALLY list each other on their date cards will later receive an email with contact information for the other person - this is in hopes of preventing awkward moments during the date themselves because no one is allowed to ask for contact information at the event (you're on your own during the Mixer!).

Not interested in Speed Dating but want to come out and meet some people - there will be a continuous Happy Hour and Mixer throughout the evening with drink and food specials, drawings and other fun surprises to make this fundraiser memorable. So come on out and support the cause!

Thanks for the support!
