Double Up On Dating
Anyone who struck out at happy hour on Friday and then had an equally rough night of club hopping on Saturday is in luck. They can start over with two chances to get back in the game.
That first opportunity comes on Monday, July 25 when 8 Minute Dating holds one of its speed dating events. As the name implies, daters get to meet members of the opposite sex for 8 minutes. The name is also sort of a double entendre, because participants each have 8 dates. The event, which begins at 8:00 p.m., is for men 22-32 and women 21-28, and will be held at The Irish Times Pub in Holbrook. For more information, visit www.8minutedating.com or contact The Irish Times pub online at www.irishtimespubny.com, or by calling 631.467.4330.
The second chance is on Wednesday, July 27 at Hurry Date's speed dating event. Hurry Date differs from 8 Minute Dating by having its dates last for 4 minutes, and by having participants meet between 12 and 20 members of the opposite sex. The event, which is for men and women between 25 and 35, is being held at The Race Palace at Maxwell and Dunne's Steakhouse in Plainview. Start time is 8:00 p.m. For more information, go to www.hurrydate.com, visit The Race Palace's web site, www.mdsteakhouse.com, or call 516.694.6200.
