7-8pm check in, casual cocktail hour
8-10pm techno speed dating

Dating host and MC: Tom Calahan from Techno Queers NY
Hosted and party pics by Seze Devres Photography NYC

Screw dating apps. It is time to meet each other the old fashioned way, in person, by shamelessly flirting with each other at a bar.

Come meet like-minded music obsessed friends regardless of gender and sexual orientation. Options will include romantic and simply platonic intentions.

Queer, straight, or whatever: all are welcome!

Please be aware that you’ll be asked to fill out a name tag with your first name, plus a few words about the kinds of cuties you’re seeking. It’s optional to say anything about your sexual orientation, but this is a space where we want you to feel comfy doing that, since this will facilitate flirtation that feels worth your time (and even if it doesn’t, the rounds are only 5 mins!)

Happy flirting!
