#11: Speed Dating at OpenSF
This was part of the OpenSF conference in 2012. The size of the thing was kind of rediculous, but totally worth it. For details on OpenSF see open-sf.org.

#10: Date and Dance Night at the Blue Macaw
We had dating followed by dancing. Matches were entered while people hung out and had a good time. It was a good, smoothly operating evening.

#9: Queer Poly Speed Dating at the LGBT Center, SF
To celebrate (and test) our new gender and sex matching system, we hosted a queer-only event. The diversity of registrations was amazing, and the connections fabulous.

#8: "Revive the Love" at the Revival Bar and Kitchen, Berkeley
This was a fancier dress event with much better food. A very nice evening. And, finally, decent sound quality due to the softer restaurant decor. But, more expensive.

#4: LGBT Center in San Francisco, Ca
The LGBT center in the mission was our first #event in San Francisco. While their biggest room was large enough to hold such a crazy crowd we discovered another minor problem: 147 chattering daters in a single large room makes for a cacophony.

#3: 33 Revolutions Café in El Cerrito, Ca
Outgrowing Spuds and wanting to host the event in different locations we next moved to a Cafe and music store.

#2: Spuds Pizza in Berkley, Ca
Learning from the previous experiment we decided to rent out the whole place. We also doubled the number of people, making the larger area still feel small. But the vibe was a happy one, with people talking away.
