What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Pop on a nice top and meet some new singles who are ready to mingle... from the comfort of their couch.
Awkwardness is kept to a minimum with fun, ice breaker activities in groups.
-2 Truths and a Lie
-A scavenger hunt
-"Phone show and tell"
At the end of the night there will be a survey to see who you want to get to know more. You will be notified of your matches by the end of the weekend.
***Plus ones are enthusiastically welcomed. Please invite anyone and everyone you know who is great and ready to date!***
NOTE: MEN WILL BE INVITED ON MY CO-ED GROUP, HARTFORD HAPPENINGS. I am just cross promoting on both groups to try and reach out to as many people as possible.
Enjoy meeting local singles in person at a laid back brewery where you can order delivery of almost any food you imagine from Hartford’s food hall, Parkville Market.
*If you have been to any of my virtual singles mixers, you get a free drink on me!*
Message From Hog River About Parking:
PLEASE NOTE: Our entrance is on Bartholomew Avenue (not on Park Street). Use 30 Bartholomew Avenue for more accurate directions as our actual address will direct you to the wrong side of our building.
We are located in a unit in the back corner of the 5-story building on the corner of Bartholomew Avenue and Park Street.
I'm so excited to try a wine tasting party another time! Last time I posted this, I got a lot of interest at first and very few confirmed guests. This is why I'm asking for a small fee for the event. (That and to set off the costs I have as a hostess.) We want to have a nice sized crowd so we can have a good time!
WHAT TO EXPECT:
-We will begin tasting our 5 wines (2 whites, 2 reds, 1 sweet) promptly at 2:30pm. This will take about 45-60 minutes.
-As we taste each wine, we will have a small snack. Please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions in advance and I'll try to offer another option. We have 5 snacks (one for each wine), so it might not be a big deal to miss a snack or two that is paired with the wine.
-This is an event to BUY the wine you like. Wines are about $17 - $20. You can pay with Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or debit cards. You cannot pay with cash, check, or American Express.
-This event will happen inside my home. There is an option for some people to go to the park behind my building, but it is a shared outdoor space. I can't host the event completely outside. We will have masks off inside. I ask that you only attend inside if you are vaccinated and can safely participate without a mask.

Please do your best to be on time. Parking can be a little bit tricky in Downtown Hartford, but there is more than enough space near my building!
Street parking is free after 6:00pm. I would encourage you to look on Main Street rather than Capitol Avenue because of the movie.
There are some other options for parking in the area that are free or paid:
-Pulaski Circle Lot ($5 for 3 hours, but about a block away)
-Any of the spots the Bushnell Theater recommends. There is a free lot they use, that is mentioned on their site on Capitol Avenue.
