"In Real Life" is a speed-dating service that aims to bring singles together over mutual interests, and presents hyper-specific events for dog lovers, entrepreneurs, and video game enthusiasts. The model takes some of the pressure off of finding common ground with a complete stranger, and at the very least lends itself to making new friends. IRL will host on Wednesday, October 25, a 1990's-themed speed-dating event on the second floor of Ox and Stone (282 Alexander Street). Treat it like a bonus Halloween and come in an era-appropriate costume, and get ready to reminisce about what is now considered (*stifled sob*) vintage culture.
The event takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. For $10 you get to participate in the event, enjoy live music by Daniel King, and partake of happy hour drink specials (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.) and appetizer deals (5 p.m. to 10 p.m.).
