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!

Dreams – I just plan to drive around a nice subdivision and go to the house with the most cars out in the driveway and on the street. You are welcome to roll with me if you like. We’ll just tell them we are friends of Ken’s twin sisters’ daughter’s best friend’s daddy. LOL

Reminds me of back in school, I was attempting to drive my wasted roomie home. This chick hops out the moving car and runs into an apartment that was having a party. By the time I park the car to go get her, she was in the middle of the floor dropping it like it’s hot. As I was trying to get her up out of there, the fellas were like, Hey hey hey…why you making shawty leave? LOLOLOL

I hear that because the spot i’m going to always has this dude there that make them killa killa burgers. He puts cheese AND bacon inside the burgers…plus he’ll make banana pudding (I personally don’t eat that but i hear it’s da bomb) Speaking of which, i might need to head to party early so I won’t miss out on the burgers like I did last time…trying to all fashionably late and shyt. lol

Why would I drop more loot than something actually costs? Did you pay more for your house than it was worth just to show people you had the capability? I guess you can call me the $40 Man. lol

It’s nothing, Dan was telling us how he thought Red Lobster and Applebee’s were places you would take a date if you really liked her. He considered those middle of the road restaurants…I think that’s the phrase he used!
