Time to get “meety” at Gay City’s “The Meet Market”…and, we’re helping out!

Gay City Health Project’s new speed dating event, “The Meet Market” was such a huge success back in July at MOD Pizza (check out our coverage of that event by the lovely Danielle) that they’ve decided to bring it back periodically…AND, they’ve asked Seattle Gay Scene to partner with them in putting on the event! The next event is happening Thursday, October 6 from 7pm to 9pm at Lobby Bar, 916 East Pike Street and with all that lovely room at Lobby, they’ve upped the number of participants from 20 to 30. Oh, and this time we’ve added a hostess to keep the event moving along, and Seattle’s favorite celebrity party thrower, the delightful Sylvia O’Stayformore will be on hand to preside over the festivities and make sure the dates don’t get out of hand…check out the lovely cartoon Sylvia in The Meet Market poster. (Wouldn’t you love to see her in her own Saturday morning cartoon show?)

But, why use speed dating to meet men, in a world full of Grindr and Manhunt? We’ll let the lovely press release from Gay City explain it all…

The Meet Market is an easy, casual, and affordable way to meet some great guys, whether for dating or friendship. Why waste time with endless chatting & exchanging photos online, only to find that there’s no chemistry when you meet in person? At The Meet Market you’ll know right away if you’d like to get to know someone better.

With dozens of “dates” in one evening, you’re sure to meet someone interesting. Plus, since the dates are only 3-minutes each, you’re left with some intrigue to make that potential second date even more exciting. And if it’s not a match? No big deal….it’s only a 3-minute date!

Now you’re asking yourself: “How does this work?!?!?!?”

  • You register online in advance. Your $20 gets you admission to The Meet Market and a chance to meet dozens of Seattle’s most eligible bachelors. We do the planning – you just show up and have fun.
  • You attend the event at The Lobby Bar on Oct 6. We’ll start off with some mingle time, and then Gay City’s facilitators will coordinate your dates. We even have a few ideas to help you break the ice.
  • During The Meet Market, you keep track of who you would like to get to know better. After the event we tabulate everyone’s results, and if there’s a match, we put you and the other guy in touch with each other. You can meet for a second date, and take it from there!

Nothing could be easier, or more fun!
