Singles Mixer, ages 30s/40s/50s

Roots Bistro & Bar

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 Triangle area and surrounding communities. This is not a dance party event. Suggested cash donation at the door to help defray organizer's Meetup fees = sliding scale $1-5. Tired of online dating and dating apps? Maybe it's time to meet some local singles IN REAL LIFE at this event! This will be a simple, unstructured singles mixer. Suggested age range 30s/40s/50s. 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 ************ PLEASE BE CONSCIENTIOUS ABOUT YOUR MEETUP RSVP: Please put in a YES RSVP only if you definitely plan to attend, so that I may provide an accurate attendance figure to our wonderful host venue. ************ COST: Suggested sliding scale cash donation of $1-5 at the door, to help defray organizer's Meetup fees. ************* 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!!!" • "This was excellent, the best gathering I have been to in the last 10 years! The music was low, the people were intelligent, and topics ranged beautifully. I met great people, and would love to attend very soon again! Great work Michael, you hit a home run!" • "This was a great event. Lots of people, really fun time, and I met new friends!" ************* LOCATION: Look for event host Michael P and/or event greeters when you arrive. The mixer will be in a private section of the restaurant's dining room--NOT in the bar side of the restaurant with the pool tables. Please try to enter via the main door of the restaurant--Suite 106--which faces toward Hope Valley Road. Roots Bistro & Bar is in the former location of 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). http://www.rootsbistroandbar.com ************ MORE INFORMATION: Questions? Please feel free to post a comment, or call or text event host Michael P at[masked]
