Cupid predating detroit
Singles pay a cover charge to meet up in a club where each male gets a key and each woman gets a lock to wear around her neck. The ostensible object of the game is to match them up, but its all just a clever icebreaker.The latest Orlando club to try it out, appropriately enough, is the Icebar.Sometimes people dont want to approach someone they are interested in at a club, but at Lock and Key, thats the whole point so there is no awkwardness.Lock and Key events, described as a fun, interactive way to meet potential love interests, have been held at venues in nearly 100 cities around the country.With these necklaces, someone now has a legitimate reason to approach someone else. It's a fun game, but trying out someones lock/key is just a simple way to break the ice. Yeah, I was skeptical too until I experienced it myself.No awkward hellos here so the conversation can just flow (and love can begin! Did I also mention the numerous, successful relationships and weddings that all began from a single Lock and Key event.There is no limit on the amount of time you can talk with someone, and you can choose to get a new lock or key after youve made a match.I know of several people who have asked another attendee out on a date who they met at one of my events, Reich says.
Women will receive padlocks when they arrive at Red Ox and men will get keys.
The next Lock and Key party takes place Sunday, May 26 from to 3pm at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club and also launches Darsonvals Meet the Matchmaker series that will be held monthly, when the expert will be on hand to answer questions about dating in Santa Barbara and to connect singles during polo matches.
I recently attended a Lock and Key event at Blue Martini in Brickell.
Each time their hardware matches, its turned in for a new set of hardware and each person gets another raffle ticket for great prizes donated by local businessesor maybe even a date?
Judging from the popularity of the events (attendance has doubled at each new gathreing) this formula for love seems to be working.
