I recently attended a Lock and Key event at Blue Martini in Brickell.
Magazines and websites produce periodic Best Cities for Singles stories that judge communities mainly on how easily their unattached residents can become attached.
Upon arrival, women attendees get padlocks and men get keys.
Each time their hardware matches, its turned in for a new set of hardware and each person gets another raffle ticket for great prizes donated by local businessesor maybe even a date?
Judging from the popularity of the events (attendance has doubled at each new gathreing) this formula for love seems to be working.
The next Lock and Key party takes place Sunday, May 26 from to 3pm at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club and also launches Darsonvals Meet the Matchmaker series that will be held monthly, when the expert will be on hand to answer questions about dating in Santa Barbara and to connect singles during polo matches.
