Want To Go On A Guaranteed-Fun Date Tonight? (It Can Happen!)

Fact: Dating in D.C. can be a bit paradoxical at times. This city is small enough that it feels like you already know everyone, yet big enough that you never know where to go to meet new people. Enter Datesocial, the newest dating site geared to help throw your hat into the D.C. dating ring. Here's how it works: A group of 20 guys and 20 girls meet at a bar, and are split into smaller groups of four people (so, basically a blind double-date). Each group spends about 12 minutes talking to each other before the groups are changed. At the end of the event, you turn in a list of up to five people you'd like to see again; if the feeling is mutual, you'll be connected via email within 24 hours.

So, let's do the math — you could meet 20 potential love interests tonight, and possibly connect with as many as five of them tomorrow. We're not exactly pro gamblers, but we'd say the odds are definitely in your favor.
When: Today, June 21, from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Where: Velocity 5, 2300 Clarendon Boulevard, Arlington; no phone. Tickets are $5.
