BABETOWN SPEED DATING, MAY 17
Time to get your babe on! Dating as a queer can be a struggle. It’s not like you can always wink at that cutie in the coffee shop or buy a drink for that co-worker you kinda know. And online dating is, frankly, a time suck, constantly swiping left or right just waiting for your next boo to find their way onto your screen. Babetown, in partnership with New Woman Space, is now offering its first queer women, trans and nonbinary dinner guests a different dating option: speed dating. In five minute, round robin style intervals, get to meet a room full of cute, single queers and see if you match IRL. Your ticket includes an open bar (so you can try the New Woman Space original cocktail!) and loads of finger food and snacks brought to you by Babetown.
