Find Love with the Luck of the Irish
St. Patrick’s Day is only a few days away. There are a plethora of bar crawl options throughout the weekend and even some on Monday for the truly brave. But for those seeking a potential soul mate, the St. Patrick’s Day Party and Celebration hosted by Professionals in the City is a great opportunity to meet that special someone.
The event will be held at Capitale, 1301 K St. NW on Saturday. The night will be comprised of two parts: speed dating and dance party. The first portion will be a seated speed dating round lasting about an hour. Doors will open at 7 p.m., and the dating will begin at 7:20 p.m., giving singles time to mix and mingle before taking their seats.
What is speed dating?
In speed dating, women sit at tables and the men switch tables every three to four minutes at the blow of a whistle from the speed dating host. Women take note of the number of the person in whom they are interested. If the other person is interested, it is considered a match and the two singles can meet up at a later time for a formal date, or in this case, the dance party happening after the speed dating round.
The dating will end at about 9 p.m., which is when the party starts. The second portion of the evening will be an all-out, St. Patrick’s-style dance party with a DJ spinning top-40 favorites. Those who attended the dating session will have a more extended period of time to meet the other singles and perhaps make a deeper connection with one of them. Make sure you “dress to impress” as Capitale will not allow anyone wearing sneakers, shorts or caps into the venue.
If you are not interested in attending the speed dating portion, you can purchase a ticket for $15 here. Those attending only the party part of the evening will not be allowed into Capitale until 10 p.m. but should arrive before that time to ensure admission. This is the perfect opportunity to bring out your little green dress or shamrock tie. For more information about the speed dating event, click here.
