 The evening includes:

Speed Dating – You have five minutes' to make a first impression, find a new obsession, maybe meet your soul mate.  Times up. *Ding*  Could you find love in an instant?

The Drag of Dating – Finding dates at a nightclub sounds common enough.  But dating takes on a life of it’s own at the Diamond Mine – Chicago’s hottest Drag Club.

The Dating Game – A delusional “TV host” leads a trio of not-so-perfect bachelors on a quest for romance in this bizarre reinvention of the classic coupling show.

Internet Dating – Lonely singles seeking love on the Internet highway.  It’s a long way from how grandma found grandpa!

Creative Dating – When all else fails, two smitten and desperate girls resort to extreme measures in order to meet the man of their dreams.  Short skirts, firearms' there’s no telling what these two will do for love.
