We're Here! We're Queer!

So we all know gays and lesbians can't get married. But hey, who cares if we pay the same taxes as everyone else? Why bother with that "all men are created equal" malarkey? I wasn't using my inalienable rights anyways. Despite all the obstacles to marriage, there is always the hope of finding that special someone. And all in the matter of 20 four-minute dates for a mere $30! In ironic celebration of National Singles Week, HurryDate is hosting a speed dating event for gay singles. The two-day event begins Tuesday (for gay men ages 21 to 39) at Spike Bar and Lounge, 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane, and continues Wednesday (women ages 30 to 40, men ages 35 to 45). Doors open at 7 p.m.; the action begins at 7:30 p.m. But visit hurrydate.com for details. You don't want to end up in the wrong crowd.
Tue., Sept. 12, 7 p.m.
