April Adventures: Sober Social Happy Hour, Speed Dating, and Preparing for May Madness!

Updated: May 14

Andy and Damsel at Men <3 Men Speed Dating

We had only a few events in April but they were some of our favorites so far.

April Sober Social

Our April Sober Social at The Delaware in Kenmore was one of our best turnouts. We were able to meet new people and see familiar faces. The Delaware had their main mocktail menu and also created a specialty drink menu just for us such as a mocktail that was a take on a Tom and Jerry! We are so happy to see restaurants get excited about their collaboration with us and expand their offerings to include so many N/A drinks. We also appreciate the $50 gift card to raffle off to one of our very lucky attendees! Our hope with these sober socials is that restaurants and bars in Western New York (and beyond) see the need for mocktails and non-alcoholic beverages on their menu!

Upcoming Sober Socials

Our Sober Socials are held on the third Wednesday of every month (unless otherwise stated). You can catch us on May 15th at Aroma on Bryant in the Elmwood Village. They have an incredible menu of Italian eats and of course, mocktails to pair. RSVP here for your free mocktail on us!

Queer Speed Dating

In addition to our April Sober Social, we held the third installment of our Queer Speed Dating series at Jack Rabbit hosted by Damsel N’ Disdress. This event was for Men seeking Men. These speed dating events have stirred up some positive feedback from the community. We have heard events like these are needed for so many reasons such as the changes in today’s dating scene and how it can be difficult getting to know people now a days. After surveying our attendees, we are certain we will be continuing this series and we have received helpful responses which we take into account when we are planning the next ones! As long as the community is benefiting from our speed dating events, we will continue to put them on!

Upcoming Queer Speed Friending

Our next event is on May 29th and it is Queer Speed FRIENDing! Set up like speed dating, but it is all about friendship. Get your tickets now! This is right before Buffalo Pride so come out and meet some new friends to hang out at Pride with and have fun! Drinks and appetizers are included in your ticket! Comment below or send us a message if you have any questions!
