It's Friday which can only mean one thing......it's only one more sleep till the Autumn Lock & Key Party!
If you have you ever played Cards Against Humanity then you will know what I'm talking about when I say that it's so wrong its right!
London must be the home of pop-up bars in the UK, with tons of new themed bars popping up all the time and what better places to take a date.
That’s right, the new world power Amazon are now also rivaling Netflix for online streaming. They create their own Amazon Exclusive TV shows such as Man In The High Castle which is all about what would’ve happened if the Nazis won the war.
In an ideal world we’d probably all like to have the day off after we go on a date.
Another success story, in today!
So where is good to watch the footy in London?
After the recent Bank Holiday, I found myself nursing a hangover from hell and found myself needing some help in the form of Haribo, Irn Bru and Netflix.
Is it just me or does it seem like Hollywood has run out of inspiration?
When it comes to British pastimes, going down the pub has to be right up there with the most popular. And what’s better than going to one pub? Going to 2,3 or even 6 pubs of course.
I was talking to someone the other night at one of our events. They had never been speed dating before so I reassured them they were in for a great night and I said without hesitation that its THE best way to meet people.
London has a lot to offer, I mean there are hundreds of bars, pubs and pop-ups all over that each have their own well thought out theme, environment or quirk. Of course, these places always make for a great date idea but it’s a little predictable even if it is a bit different or unique.
London, the big smoke, corporate and banking capital of the UK but also the hub of creative, full of theatre, music and art. A center of excellence in practically any field you care to mention.
Netflix are always adding new films but that doesn’t mean they will all be recent releases. I for one am guilty of not watching films if they’re in black in white or just look a bit dated, especially action films or anything you would expect to have special effects.
Another bank holiday is upon us, its been too long since we had what felt like at least four in the space of six weeks. I think we all deserve one as well! I’m sure we’ve all been working hard when its been sunny outside and we’ve been stuck inside (for that one week it was actually nice weather).
In case you missed our boat party this year I’m going to give you a quick run down including some behind the scenes info of our best boat party to date.
When it comes to film nothing beats watching a film on the big screen. Nothing. We all love all the loud explosions and eating popcorn with a friend (or date) and watching the drama unfold in front of our eyes as we suspend our disbelief that these larger than life characters played by these incredibly perfect millionaires tell us a heart wrenching and compelling story.
With the sun is shining who really wants to be inside? Not me! Where better to enjoy the sunshine than a beer garden? Now, many of London’s pubs have a garden but not all gardens are created equal. Here’s one that I’m very I’m happy to recommend. I give you The People’s Park Tavern.
In this concrete jungle we call London, there’s tons of pubs and beer gardens but we can’t always fork out the London prices to sit in a pub all day drinking and eating.
The beauty of Speed Dating London lies in its no-nonsense approach. You take an equal number of single girls and guys, put them in a room and give them a few minutes to chat with every other member of the opposite sex.
Original speed dating events in London normally begin at 7.30pm. You will need to register with our hosts and to begin with they will issue you with a score sheet. This will help you to keep track of the singles that you would like to meet again and perhaps go on a date with. After a short period of mingling, your host for the evening who will run through detailed instructions and give you your starting position if you are a guy or table for the event if you are girl.
A London speed dating event is split into two halves, each lasting around an hour, there will be an interval at half time of about 15 minutes. You will have between 4 and 5 minutes with each person, after which you need to tick a box on your score sheet - "yes, I would like to meet this person again" or "no. Thanks but no thanks". Or "friend" if you'd like to get to know them platonically. Make sure that you do this after each date to keep track. Afterwards there is an opportunity for everyone to meet and mingle informally - this is often where the real action begins, so make sure you don't disappear too quickly!
After the event you simply tick who you liked on the Original Dating website and the site works about your matches automatically. If the dates you have ticked as a "yes" have reciprocated you have a match. You will be able to view the first names and message them via our site online without revealing your email address until you are ready to. You'll be having proper first dates in no time.
