When Should I Arrive?
Please arrive at Rum Runners NO LATER then 5 PM. There are nearby parking garages - I would suggest grabbing a spot at one of those!
What Should I Wear?
Dress to impress - no ball gowns or tuxedos needed - but first date attire is recommended!
Are Food and Drinks Included?
You will be given a drink ticket to use towards a complimentary Rum Runner. After the event you will have access to an awesome buffet dinner courtesy of Master Dater! They will also be running awesome deals on drinks and you're more than welcome to enjoy another drink or two during this event - remember, always drink responsibly!
How Long Will I Get to Talk to Each Mini-Date?
You will have 5 minutes to talk!
What Should I Expect? How is This Whole Thing Going to Work?
You will arrive at Rum Runners by 5PM, from there you will check in. You will receive a folder containing your 'Dating Guide' and your 'Results Sheet.' You will be given 20 minutes to grab a drink, mingle and find your seat. You will receive a 5-10 minute introduction and Question and Answer session then the event will begin promptly at 5:30 - no exceptions!
From there, you will talk to each date for seven minutes, when your seven minutes are over your host will get on stage and tell the gentlemen to please move clockwise to the next table. Before you move to the next table, both Speedaters will mark on their results sheet if they are interested in each other as a 'Date,' 'Friend' or 'Not at All.' Then you will have one minute to make the transition from each table. You will continue this process for 10-12 mini-dates. At the end of the evening you will turn in your results sheet to your host and the results will be tabulated and sent to you within the next 48 hours.
You are free to stay after the event to enjoy Rum Runners dueling piano show - and trust me, it's world famous and AWESOME.
Can I see who I Will Be Speedating With Prior to the Event?
Yes! The night before the event your fellow Speedater's profiles will be made public. To access them simply Log in to your Master Dater account then visit the events page - from there, click on the 'attendees' button under the event listing for the opposite sex. You will now see a listing of all the Master Daters you will be Speedating with! Feel free to browse their profiles and take mental notes! A copy of the profiles will be provided to you at the Speedating event as well!
Does Anyone Ever Walk Away With No Matches?
So far 95% of people have walked away with at least one match - either a friend or a date! If for any reason you do walk away with no matches, we will give you a free pass to the next event - no questions asked!
