Want to Be Popular on the Weekend?
Anyone who has always wanted more dates than they can count on their fingers can finally have their wish granted. Weekend Dating, a local company based in Bayside, Queens, sets up singles with up to 20 dates in one evening.
The only similarities to other speed dating events are that participants all go to a venue and then rotate dates in order to meet everyone of the opposite sex. How are these events different from those hosted by other companies? Weekend Dating is one of the few companies to have speed dating events on Long Island, and it is the only company that holds all of its events on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.
The events, which consist of dates lasting from 4-5 minutes, are age specific and all participants are required to show identification as proof of age. Unlike other speed dating companies, Weekend Dating provides one-way matches so daters have a chance to change their minds. They also collect scores at the end of the event and e-mail the results the following day, so participants don't have to log on to the site and put in their scores.
This weekend, Weekend Dating is holding two events. The first is Friday the 15th at the Sly Fox Inn, located at 172-43 Union Turnpike in Fresh Meadows (Queens). Male participants must be between 47 and 59, while female participants must be between 42 and 55. The event begins at 8:00 p.m.
The second event is Saturday the 16th at RC Dugans (2316 Hempstead Turnpike) in East Meadow. Women daters must be 22-35 and men daters must be 24-34. Start time is also 8:00 p.m. The event is temporarily sold out for males unless they have a female friend sign-up.
Weekend Dating can be contacted via its web site, www.weekenddating.com, or by calling 516.908.9638 or 718.757.6933.
