You don’t need to find a Valentine for the Singles Day Soiree: This shindig is all about the single life. Taking over the main floor of the Jet Hotel, the party will offer plenty of activities that encourage singles to mingle, including free shots (from 9 to 11 p.m.), interactive games, spinning from DJs mLe, Lexi Fey and Mr. Willis, and nyotaimori (serving sushi rolls off of half-naked models).
Promoter Mike Knopping got the idea for the event by observing the way some of his dateless friends shared their woes of unattachment on social networks. “It baffled me that someone was single and felt bad about it,” says Knopping, whose Party Guru Productions also organizes pub crawls, scavenger hunts and massive camping outings throughout the year.
The third annual Singles Day Soiree begins at 9 p.m. at Jet, 1612 Wazee Street. Tickets for the 21-and-up party are $5 to $10; limited bottle service can be ordered in advance. For tickets (advance purchase is recommended) and information, visit www.singlesdaysoiree.com.
