Speed Dating and Wine Tasting Event {2/11 at Grand Vin in Hoboken}

Written by:

While we love hosting events for the ladies and are gearing up for our #HobokenGirlSocial events this year, February is kind of an awkward month. Fresh off the holidays with Valentine’s Day approaching — it’s hard to meet someone and not feel the pressure of V-Day coming around the bend. That’s why we’re joining forces with Grand Vin and the AVEC Dating App to host a speed dating and wine tasting afternoon for singles in Hoboken, so that you can meet some new people, drink wine, enjoy some small bites, and get out of the house {and not think about Valentine’s Day, at all}.

Get your tickets here! 

So…What’s Included?

Your $50 ticket includes:

  • – Admission
  • – Three {3} glasses of vino
  • – Tasty passed bites prepared by Grand Vin’s chef
  • – 2 hours of conversation with new people
  • …and potentially your soulmate. {Or just a cool guy/girl to hang with post-Valentine’s Day [yep – that’s correct, you’re not allowed to contact each other ’til after Valentine’s Day!]}.

How does the event “speed dating” work?

You’ll arrive at 12:30 and get served a glass of vino. For a half hour or so, it’ll be casual, relaxed hanging at the bar with 20 Hoboken guys {ages 27-39} and 20 Hoboken girls {ages 25-39}. Then, for the next two hours {with a wine break in between!}, you’ll get to sit across from said 20 with some wine, bites, and have a little speed dating fun — all in a #nopressure environment. There will be questions to ask each other so the conversation will flow, and it will be great — promise.

 And at the end of the afternoon, you’re free to get those digits if you please —just one rule: you can’t contact anyone until after Valentine’s Day {you’re welcome} 🙂

avec-app

This event is brought to you by Grand Vin and the AVEC dating app, which is an outside-the-regular-dating-app-box dating app, matching you to dates based on your shared interests in events. Avec, derived from Middle French ‘avecques’ meaning ‘with’, was created with the idea that people should choose dates based on common interests, not just photo uploads.

How AVEC works is very simple:
A user offers a date for an activity or event they have tickets to. Through push notifications in real time, the user sees the profiles of people interested in the date and vice versa. With Avec, people can only browse by events, not by profile, which is what makes the app so unique.
