WE NEED EVERYONE'S HELP! :) We're posting on many DIFFERENT platforms (including multiple Facebook pages, Eventbrite, Google, multiple Meetup groups, Instagram, and websites) to bring in LOTS of singles.
But what works best? WORD of MOUTH. Whether you plan to go or not, would you please help us by sharing the event on social media, liking our Facebook page, and getting your friends to go? :) Let's get this out there! Please share our website with your friends:
AGE GROUPS...PLEASE READ
We're doing the groups like last time by overlapping age groups. Please choose YOUR GENDER plus ONE age group that best fits your age and the ages you want to date. (Examples below.)

EXAMPLE A: If I am a woman who is 50 years old, I could be in either the group of "Women 40-55" or "Women 50-65". IF I prefer to date men who are older than I am, I'd choose to go into the group "Women 50-65". IF I'd prefer to date men younger than I am, I'd choose the group "Women 40-55".
EXAMPLE B: If I am a man who is 55, I could be in either the group of "Men 40-55" or "Men 50-65". IF I prefer to date women who are younger than I am, I'd choose to go into the group "Men 40-55". IF I prefer to date women older than I am, I'd buy a ticket for the group "Men 40-55".

It's been TOO long since we've seen your faces...but we still have to follow COVID rules so we may not see your faces anyway!* :D Please read the COVID section below and only come if you WILL follow the rules. We HAVE to keep to the rules so the venue and related businesses are safe from repercussions.
See you there!
Love From Your Hosts,
Erica & Tom
OTHER DETAILS WE KNOW YOU'D APPRECIATE KNOWING:
Bridge Press Cellars has a limited space parking lot near them for $3 AND street parking...so bring change for the meters. They do NOT take credit/debit cards in that area. It looks like it'll be around $3 or $3.50 for parking.
If you park at a meter, read the sign on it, as rules vary depending on location and time of day. Meter Parking is enforced Monday - Saturday, 8 am - 7 pm
$1.20/hour for 2-hour meters
$.80/hour for 4-hour meters
$.40/hour for 12-hour (or all day) meters
Parking is FREE on Sundays, Holidays, and all days from 7 pm - 8 am
**Please be aware that there are quite a few homeless people in that area so be prepared with change for meters ahead of time, don't be on your phone, and walk with a purpose. We've been to Bridge Press Cellars MANY times and didn't leave until closing...and never had any trouble. IF women want an escort out to their cars after the event, we have some gentlemen who will be HAPPY to help...just see the organizers.
OUR COVID RULES
We are limiting the number of speed daters to 48 so that
we are compliant to 58 people gathered together.
WE ARE REQUIRING MASKS of all our Speed Dating attendees,
volunteers, the servers, and hosts.
DON'T like it? Neither do we...especially when we want to host a successful speed dating event!
WON'T do it? Then don't attend. We HAVE to keep to the rules so the venue and related businesses are safe from repercussions.
FACEMASKS & COVID RULES:
We don't know what the mask directive will be on July 25, but we may need to wear them...and at this point WE ARE REQUIRING THEM of all our Speed Dating attendees, volunteers, the servers, and the hosts. We do NOT want to jeopardize our host venue's business and livelihood by signing up and then not wearing a mask. WE MUST.
If this is something you are not comfortable with just don’t sign up. Lectures, snide, political comments are of no help. We can agree we're all spent by this thing. Just don't attend an event until you are ready. Cool? Feel free to message us with questions.
Name tags are mandatory at speed dating events and are especially helpful when we're all wearing masks. Again, if you don't want to play by those rules, no worries, just don't sign up.
We're working with the venue on social distancing space for this event. Bridge Press Cellars is being hugely helpful and it looks like we can follow all the rules and still have an amazing speed dating event. But, if we can't reasonably ensure safety we're not going to hold it.
Finally, if you feel sick, stay home.
We wish we could post this event with a bunch of guarantees, but we can't...but we'll do our darn tooting best!
No refunds or rain checks will be given as long as the event you signed up for takes place. In the rare chance we have to cancel an event, you will be refunded or allowed to attend a different event. We appreciate your understanding of this policy and how difficult it would be to organize events if we allowed people to just not show up and receive a rain check.
If you have signed up for an event, but are unable to attend, you have the option of selling/giving your ticket to a friend. If you would like to do this, email [email protected] and let us know the name, email, gender, age & bracket of the person taking your place.
