Pre-Valentine's Singles Mixer, ages 30s/40s/50s

Roots Bistro & Bar

I hosted this event over the summer, and more than 100 people attended. So let's do it again! --Michael P, event organizer/host ************ Tired of online dating and dating apps? Tired of swiping left and swiping right? Tired of spending hours and hours texting and emailing just to line up a first date? Ready to meet someone special with whom to spend Valentine's Day? If so, please attend this fun singles mixer, where you will get to meet lots of local singles IN REAL LIFE. What better time to do so than just before Valentine's Day. Even if you are simply looking to network or make new friends, please plan to attend. ************* WHAT: This will be a simple, unstructured singles mixer. Suggested age range 30s/40s/50s. This is not a dance party or speed dating event: It is a single mingle, cocktail party type of event. It is up to you to make the most of the opportunity to socialize--to mix, mingle, and chat with lots of local singles. So please put a smile on your face, bring your most outgoing party persona, and come on out and have fun socializing with other local singles. --Michael P., event organizer/host ************ WHO WILL BE THERE: This event is cross-posted to other local Meetup groups and to Facebook, so you'll get to meet a diverse group of singles ages 30s-50s from the Raleigh-Durham area and surrounding communities. This is not a dance party event. The extra Meetup RSVP guests you see for Michael P are people who have RSVP'd via other Meetup groups or via Facebook. Sorry, but there is no one place where you may view photos of everyone who will be there. ************ REFRESHMENTS: Beer, wine, mixed drinks, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the bar. DRESS CODE: Cocktail chic. Dress to impress. ************ COST: Cover charge of $5 (cash only), payable at the door. Fee is to help defray organizer's Meetup fees and other costs associated with running Michael P events. Feel free to purchase a ticket for this event in advance on line via Eventbrite: https://meetupmixer.eventbrite.com ************* TESTIMONIALS: Unsolicited testimonials from some of Michael P's past mixer events: • "[My guest} and I had a wonderful time at the meetup. We were impressed with the detailed planning of the mixer. Also, the energy there was so positive and friendly :) Thank you so much!!!" • "It's very obvious that you work tirelessly at hosting and organizing these singles events. You bring people together that would not otherwise have had the opportunity to meet, and you're really good at what you do. Thank you for everything!" • "Super fun time tonight. Thank you Michael for organizing and hosting another terrific event! Can't wait for your future events too." ************* LOCATION: When you arrive, please look for event greeters outside or inside the restaurant. The mixer will be in the dining room side of the restaurant--NOT in the bar side of the restaurant with the pool tables. Please enter via the main door of the restaurant--Suite 106--which faces toward Hope Valley Road. Roots Bistro & Bar is in the spot formerly occupied by City Beverage--but the space has been expanded. It is in a strip shopping center directly across Hope Valley Road (aka Hwy 751) from Woodcroft Shopping Center, just a block from the intersection of Highways 751 and 54 in southwest Durham. Just a mile off I-40 (exit 274). Convenient, free parking behind and beside restaurant. Additional parking available across the street, in Woodcroft Shopping Center parking lot. http://www.rootsbistroandbar.com ************ MORE INFORMATION: Questions?
