Is love blind? Houston singles can hope to experience "Love At No Sight" at Rose Matchmaking's "Dating In the Dark" event at Bar Victor October 10th
from 6 to 8:30 p.m. This is the first event of its kind in Texas. Singles will mingle then be escorted into the dark room for several rounds of speed dating in the dark. This isn't just about the age-old personality vs looks debate; The basic concept is that the removal of vision enhances other senses and increases open-ness. Losing sight will clear the deck of preconceived judgments, allowing you to focus on the sound of a voice, a person's presence and removing social inhibitions. There are many variables to chemistry and this event tries to isolate them. A Rose Matchmaking staffer will be on hand in the dark room and no physical touching will be allowed. A staffer will also ensure safety, security and a genuinely fun experience. Please note you will NOT be in darkness for the entire event. So join us at the gorgeous french Bar Victor. Darkness will also tantalize your taste buds so we will provide tasty appetizers and Victor is designing special drinks such as the 'Le papillon' (the butterfly): rum, vanilla, cinnamon and strawberry for optimum pleasure. All daters must RSVP to Renee@RoseMatchmaking.com with age and gender. You will then be sent a link to purchase your ticket. There is no cost to come and watch the event but an RSVP is appreciated. Parking is on the side streets or valet. www.RoseMatchmaking.com or (713) 280-7980. [Organizer's description]
