I needed to see for myself what Techno Speed Dating was about, so on Thursday October 18 I put on my party earrings and showed up at Bossa Nova Civic Club at 8 p.m. A crowd of about 40 people was mingling around the bar when I walked in, a positive sign relative to the interrogation-like table and chairs set up that comes to mind at the thought of speed dating.
Seze Devres, the organizer and host of TSD, found me by the bar as I was ordering a very reasonably priced whisky (they know their audience).
Devres noted that there were more straight women at the second event versus more queer and straight men at the first. While she acknowledges that it might one day make sense to separate future TSD parties based on sexual preference (she’s hoping to draw more of a queer crowd to forthcoming events), she plans on keeping them mixed for the time being.
I didn’t meet the love of my life at this month’s TSD, but I did get a kick out it of it.
Techno Speed Dating is new territory for the native New Yorker, but as a photographer by trade and creator of Brooklyn’s Kiss & Tell parties, which she’s been running since 2005, Devres is a vet of the Brooklyn nightlife and electronic scene.
I was using [techno] as a way to encompass the “community of people that are interested in dance music," she said.So, if you represent a community group, educational institution or residential center or any area 'healthy aging' organization that is interested in becoming part of our initiative, please submit the inquiry form below, and we'll be in touch. You might meet someone you'll be chatting with on the phone a lot and sharing thoughts with in the weeks to come, someone to take a walk with and make you feel good on a lonely day. It's just meant to break down doors to finding new friendships, new connections.“It’s a really impersonal way to interact with people that you don’t even know.I wanted to change that and make a safe space for people that are single to interact and be in a bar where you can literally walk up to anyone and it’s okay.” In the tight space around the Bossa bar, standing near shoulder-to-shoulder with the participating crowd made scouting out the next conversation challenging at times, but it also negated any awkwardness of having to approach someone from across the room.
