Will anyone in London who has NOT been Speed Dating at some point please step forward? Since the turn of the century (!) we've witnessed many manifestations of this quick fire phenomenon for time-strapped singletons, from pub quizzes to yachting (the mind boggles). But at Londonist we're all newly aflutter with anticipation as the lovely people at Shoot Experience launch their first speed dating event in the glamorous surroundings of The Bathhouse - recently voted Time Out's best new venue - on the 5th December. You're set to meet 23-35 years olds who take an interesting perspective (literally) on life in London, and their treasure hunt style clues will give you something much more interesting to talk about than the Cilla style 'what's your name and where d'you come from'. Or that terrible taboo: work. Urgh.
For £20, they're offering you a Shoot treasure hunt (which are usually £15 anyway), prizes, cupcakes, drink offers to get the creative juices and conversation flowing, the use of a themed photobooth and entry to the Bathhouse's ever popular Rock-a-Billy Rebels night afterwards (saving you another fiver).
Get your tickets quick as the Shoot events nearly ALWAYS sell out, and who knows what could develop? *groan*
