The event is free, but as we need to manage numbers for speed dating, please book to come along.

Shhh Dating There's no need for awkward small-talk at these unconventional silent speed-dating events. In the first you can mime, squeak and gesticulate but in the second there's total silence; only staring into each other's eyes is allowed.
I wanted to use a smaller "test" group before trying this with a class of 35 eighth graders, so I tried it with our resource reading classes first.I went through the Power Point slides, introducing speed dating and how it relates to our book speed dating activity. After all the "dating" has finished, each student will choose a playing card from the middle of the tables.We went over the directions thoroughly, and I made absolutely certain everyone knew what to do. Students who got a heart or a diamond (red card) get a "kiss" at the end of their date (Hershey's kiss). Many of the books got checked out, and the students were really engaged and enjoyed it.At 9pm the games stop and you're free to chat up your favourite playmate at the after-party, where there's a live band.Killing Kittens This is not a site for cat murderers but a clandestine community for liaisons with attractive people in beautiful surroundings.
