You're the Key!

Oh, the wisecracks we could make about a singles’ lock and key party, where women get locks, guys get keys, and you mingle from stranger to stranger to try to find your perfect match. We could say that one man has the key to your heart this Saturday at Passion Nightclub (5701 Seminole Way, Hollywood). We could remind you of Maid Marion from Robin Hood Men in Tights (Don’t even pretend you didn’t see it) and joke about the key unlocking your chastity belt. But we’ll spare you the cheesy lines, because going out and sparking conversation is tough enough — and no matter how much we jest, there’s no denying that the lock and key does make a wonderful icebreaker. Sure, finding true love would be nice, but dude — matches earn you tickets for the prize drawing! There’s a good turnout at these events; prior ones have attracted 100 to 200 single professionals, and the age group for this one is 22 to 47. Check-in begins at 8 p.m., and the unlocking begins at 8:30 p.m. Don’t worry about being left out — each lock or key has two to three matches, and if you don’t find a partner, you can swap your lock or key for another. Tickets cost $22 in advance, $35 at the door. Visit lockandkeyevents.com.
