Give Me The Mike

Exploring Minnesota and Beyond

Bauhaus Brew Labs

Where you can present a PowerPoint about your single friends


Do you have a friend who is quite the catch but doesn’t have good luck with online dating? Enter The Singles Exchange. Once you get that single friend’s blessing, you can head to the event, hosted by the Grown-Up Club, and work your magic on their behalf.

At each event, 10 people will present PowerPoint presentations about their friends. They’ll have five-minutes to tell attendees (who are also shopping for their friends) about who their subject is looking for and why they’d be great in a relationship.

After the PowerPoint sessions: networking. Attendees are asked to have photos of their friends ready on their phones.

And this is where it gets good: the subject of the PowerPoint (or the single person you’re trying to find a date for) cannot attend the event to make things less awkward. Hopefully you’ll leave the event with a lead or two to pass along to them and be proud of your new matchmaker role.

The next Singles Exchange is on Monday, June 19 at a brewery I love, Bauhaus Brew Labs, in Northeast Minneapolis. If you want the chance to present a PowerPoint, you need to act fast. Organizers need those no later than June 12. And again, you can attend if you don’t present. Tickets are available here.

The Grown-Up Club hosts monthly events, whether you’re single or in a relationship. See what they’re planning on their website.
