How efficient is that?! At a restaurant, you have dozens of dishes to try, and, at a speed dating event, you have dozens of people with all kinds of personalities, lifestyles, and cultures to get to know. We also hold a variety of events for other ethnicities, interests and religions. We facilitate the whole thing so there's no awkwardness, no pressure, no embarrassment and no games The actual schedule of these and other themed speed dating events varies as well and is determined by market demand and our ability to ensure a relatively close gender balance. With a 4-star rating on Yelp, Thomas Street Tavern is definitely worth giving a try. Founded in , we're the nation's largest speed dating service.
