I Like Your Glasses: Literary Speed Dating

Oct 23, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| $15

A night of speed dating for those who’d rather be judged by their book cover (glasses not required). Bring a book to break the ice and meet other readers for a chance connection you might otherwise have missed on the F train.

Tickets are $15 and include a drink (beer or wine) and 10% off all books that night; 100% of your ticket purchase goes to Housing Works’ mission to fight homelessness and AIDS. Hosted by CoverSpy. Registration required, so we can make sure there’s someone for everyone to check out (library pun intended).

Open to ages 21–39* and all literary tastes.

Please note that each gentleman will not have a date with every lady, and vice versa, due to the number of attendees. Each attendee will go on ten six-minute dates, matched by age and book preferences, and there will be some time after the official dating period for people to mingle and introduce themselves to people they might not have met in the official dating, followed by an after-party at Botanica.

*We decided to restrict the age range based on feedback from previous events. We hope to hold an event aimed at dates in different ranges in the future. Ticket buyers outside of the indicated age range will be refunded.
