Are you single in the city? Would you like to meet other interesting, professional and fun singles while cutting through all the hoopla of the “first date” scene? Professionals in the City has the solution for you! Here’s your opportunity to experience many first dates in only one evening of fun and excitement.
How it works:
During our speed dating, you’ll date for approximately one hour, meeting intriguing members of the opposite sex as you spend a few sweet minutes with each new acquaintance. Meet singles and know right away who you mutually match with!
After the speed dating, join us for a night of mixing, mingling and more introductions! There will be a cash bar for this eventful evening, so come and meet other single professionals like yourself and have the time of your life!
Then, after the event, use our exclusive online system from home to choose your matches from the people at the event. Without disclosing your email address, you’ll be able to send messages through our system to anyone who attended the event.
Please bring your I.D. to this venue as they do not permit anyone under the age of 21 and will be checking identification at the door.
When and where:
The event will be at the Chi-Cha Lounge, at 1624 U Street NW Washington DC 20009. This is only a couple blocks from the U Street Metro station (Green Line). The event stats at 7:00 and the dating begins at 7:20. Please check in at 7:00 so you have a chance to mix and mingle before the dating begins.

I just stumbled on this when checking out VegDC.com, but being from Frederick I thought this was very cool!
VegFrederick was created as a resource for the people and restaurants of Frederick, Maryland – to help share information on our city’s great meat-free options, promote the restaurants serving them, and help restaurants add new items.
Frederick has a lot of great restaurants and if you haven’t been to old town Frederick I would check it out! It’s only about an hours drive from DC. I recently stopped at Isabella’s while on a bike ride up in Frederick and it was delicious, a lot of veg options! LaPaz is also a really good mexican restaurant that sits right on Carroll Creek, they have outside seating, great place to stop on a nice evening.
