After watching the crowd (who were all so friendly), they were so much more receptive to one another than the usual club gathering.In a conventional lounge atmosphere, approaching someone may be difficult, but not here. That would be a raffle ticket that may lead to a plethora of prizes and the chance to get another lock/key.
Judging from the popularity of the events (attendance has doubled at each new gathreing) this formula for love seems to be working.The rankings were based on job availability, cost of living, nightlife, coolness, culture, online dating activity and the number of singles in the area. Cooler than Miami, cooler than Chicago, cooler than Los Angeles.So says a Harris public opinion poll that cited in awarding us sixth place in that category.Some attendees have married someone they met at a Lock and Key event in other regions, but not Detroit yet.We hope that in the future this can happen in Detroit too. Until they met by chance at a birthday party in an Orlando bar, Aaron Bean and Katie Merrigan counted themselves among the thousands of singles in Orlando. If we hadnt met just then, it wouldnt have worked out, says Aaron. The Internet bristles with an arsenal of dating apps and surefire matchmaking algorithms.Fridays gathering at the Red Ox Tavern in Utica will be the second Lock and Key event thats been held in the metro Detroit area.
