Speed Dating (and a Shot)



Weather Mark Tavern

1503 S. Michigan


On the last Friday of every month Weather Mark Tavern hosts Singles Mingle, a free speed-dating event. When you sign up you receive a dating ID (so you can remain anonymous) and a scorecard. Each round lasts about 20 minutes--ladies ask questions for the first ten, then switch with the guys. You turn in your scores, and later in the week the organizers send an e-mail letting you know who you've matched up with. In case you need some help loosening up, things kick off at 9 PM with a complimentary shot from the bar's nautically themed drink menu. Cutoff time for registration is 10 PM, and there are food and booze specials throughout the night.
