Love Adventures offers Speed Dating

Love Adventures and the Cumberland Hotel are offering Speed Dating this Saturday at 7 p.m.

“This kind of event has done very well in Vancouver and Victoria, but has not been offered by anyone in the Comox Valley,” says Love Adventures co-owner Craig McNeil.

Here is the “elevator version” of how speed dating works: singles sign up and come to the Cumby, where tables for two will be set up. The single ladies will remain seated while every two to five  minutes, a different single gentleman will sit for a chat. The event continues on until everyone has met each other.

At the end of the event, participants select who they would like their contact information given to.

The evening at the Cumberland Hotel includes dancing to Island Rootz, a roots, rock, reggae band from Salt Spring Island.

For more information and registration, visit  www.cumberlandhotel.ca or phone 250-336-8844. You can also contact Love Adventures (a subsidiary of Drop The Needle Entertainment) at info@droptheneedleentertainment.com.
