Single people meet, fun ensues

The Atlanta Film Festival kept me pretty busy but on one of the evenings I managed to squeeze in a singles event.  I got word via my Twitter pal, “Alone in Atlanta” that there was a very cool “sexy scavenger hunt” going down.   I arrived a pinch late  but as soon as I got there I was immediately impressed. First off, it was at the Chocolate Bar. You can’t go wrong there!

When I scanned the crowd I found that everyone was smiling (yes lovely Ladies smiling too) and laid back. A really great vibe!  I checked in and stuck a name badge on and headed to the counter to try a cocktail.  The organizers had everyone participate in a really fun ice breaker game.  You had no choice but to mix and mingle but it was never awkward.

I asked a couple of attendees if they enjoyed the event and everyone I spoke to said they did. The ages ranged from 25 to um my age *cough* and it seemed to mesh well.  Ms. Manson said that this was her second event like this and the first event had a perfect mix of men and women.  I noticed this night the numbers were pretty balanced as well.

I’ve been to speed dating, lock and key parties, and other mixers before but there always seemed to be something annoying about them!  This event felt totally fun, and dare I say organic and natural. Maybe it was the chocolate? Who knows!  How often do you get out to events designed specifically for singles? Does it make you uncomfortable to attend?  Have you ever gone to a singles mixer or party and met some really great prospects?

I believe you have to find ways to mix and mingle so that you don’t feel like you are in a meat market.  The best part of the Hidden Agenda event was that we had the NFL draft on the TV, the scavenger hunt, and a really sexy, fun group of singles just hanging out.  I am sure there were some matches made but that wasn’t the only focus.  It was about being out and about and positioning yourself to have a good time and maybe get some new friends out of it.  That’s win-win in my book!

If you want to get out of the house this evening, I hear there is a really nice Singles Wine Tasting event going on at the High Museum!

Let me get a blog poll here:

Should I cook dinner for sitter that is coming this evening? It’s the grand-god-mother and I was just sitting here thinking I should maybe make something for dinner and her and her hubby can eat too rather than just leaving something out for the baby and getting a pizza for the boy.

Whatcall think?

Thanks Willie and Leggs. I always believe that some things just don’t come to mind for no reason. I don’t know the reason but I feel that I need to follow my mind. I had already taken some chopped sirloin patties out yesterday to cook for today before I found out we are going out tonight. I guess I’ll make some chopped sirloin with gravy, mashed potatoes and I guess green beans.

Anytime she sits with the baby here at the house her husband comes with her so she doesn’t have to drive home alone at night.

I guess I can whip up a batch of caramel brownies too.

@Yellow1, Dreams, Tazzee (you’re really gonna have to come up with a married name)

I’d ask ‘em about the AMEX Black card, and what they know about it. And then I’d tell them, quick, that if you didn’t pay that bill or have the money to pay that bill every month. The cars, clothes, and jewlery are coming right off; “the only thing they can’t take back is the food you ate”.

And no one remembers Hammer, so you have to tell ‘em.

Awww sookie sookie now. @Raqi ~ I have a friend that is a full-time Princess House consultant. Her party she goes to her husband goes along so he can help her with whatever setup she needs and she’s not driving alone. I think that is one of the sweetest things ever!

They are going to love you for making dinner for them and love on your child even more!

Imagine having to tell a woman that ranks as one of People’s 50 most beautiful every year everyday that she’s beautiful.

Not once, but many times. And then there’s the other thing…

But no, she never gave away the booty

Lost in translation, Melo. I get what you’re trying to say, just don’t say leaky azz again.

@Dan!

Comcast says 8pm and I have no idea about pre-fights so you may be right about that particular fight starting at 11pm.

Raqi – Since the fight is in Vegas…11 might be right. Kind of tough to get dolled up for a fight that starts at 5 pm. 8 makes more sense if you’re going with local time which would put us east coasters at 11 pm

Melo

Whitney is walking!!!
@Leggs
no, she luved cocaine more than anything else..cant blame that on Bobby but herself!

A grown woman cant assign blame on another adult.

Those guys i mentioned wld have been strong enough to handle that…(fill the blanks) :lol:

and given her a good rub down too every day!
