Boston Poly Speed Dating, #2!  
Just a reminder about Poly Speed Dating, coming up! Even if you can't make it, we'd love to have you spread the word to friends who might be interested -- that's the best way for us to cast a wide net and have a really broad, diverse attendance.

We're looking forward to Poly Speed Dating at Oberon next week, and we hope you are too. A few things we wanted to let you know:

First, if you tell a friend who hasn't been to Poly Speed Dating before and they mention you when they register, we'll buy you a drink at the event. Make sure to tell them to put your name in the "Referred by" field.
Second, if you go to more than one Poly Speed Dating event, we keep track of who you've already met! So those of you who we met in April can rest assured you will have no repeat dates. (If you were dating in a couple before and are dating solo now, or vice versa, it's up to you whether you want to keep your dating history-- just let us know.)

Finally, we got feedback from people who wished they had had more of a chance to catch their breath during the dating, so we're working on a system where you're guaranteed time to eat some food, get a beverage, or just socialize in a more free-form way for a while. It'll be great. And the breaks are staggered, so, no lines for the restroom.

Oh right, the link to register at is...


That's all! Spread the word about Poly Speed Dating, and if you have any questions, as always, feel free to email us.

Hope to see you on the 13th!

for a friend who is a migraineur
So, couple of questions about the venue, as i referred someone to the event, but I know nothing about the location:
(and none of these are things you can control, but you might have info on)

How's the sound volume - is it the sort of place with hard ceilings/walls which reflect a ton of sound, or is there mild dampening?

What's the lighting like there?

And, if you don't know, really, you don't know.

Thanks in advance for any info. (as it's unlikely I'll have a chance to check out the venue prior to the event)

Re: for a friend who is a migraineur
The venue is also a performance venue, so I think the sound shouldn't be too bad -- the ceilings are very high, and the ceilings and walls have a lot of texture and variation. It will probably be noisy, but not cacophonous, is my guess.

I don't really know about the lighting. If I get to choose (and I might), it will be cozy/dim, but no guarantees.

Thank you!
Mostly was worried about crappy fluorescent lights.
