The Valentine event scheduled last year had to be postponed because of snow.This year, Crook's husband is being deployed on Sunday, the day before Valentine's Day, leaving her with little time to organize the event.
Upon arrival, women attendees get padlocks and men get keys.
Each time their hardware matches, its turned in for a new set of hardware and each person gets another raffle ticket for great prizes donated by local businessesor maybe even a date?
For every match you make, you will be entered to win a raffle prize which include cash, manicures, candles, comedy passes and complimentary admission to future Lock and Key events.
There is no limit on the amount of time you can talk with someone, and you can choose to get a new lock or key after youve made a match.
As the night unfolded, I began to realize this concept is quite genius!
After watching the crowd (who were all so friendly), they were so much more receptive to one another than the usual club gathering.I know of several people who have asked another attendee out on a date who they met at one of my events, Reich says.Some attendees have married someone they met at a Lock and Key event in other regions, but not Detroit yet.So says a Harris public opinion poll that cited in awarding us sixth place in that category.We dropped the ball elsewhere, however, and wound up sneaking into the roster at a modest 27th overall.Its better than sitting behind the computer to find your match. The Lock and Key format provides a great ice breaker for people to talk to each other.
