Attention: It’s T-Minus one week until V-Day

No plans? We’ve got a hot date for you.

All the single ladies....and gents, Valentine's Day is just around the corner. If you’re without a special someone to spend this Hallmark Card Holiday with, perhaps it’s time to throw caution to the wind and spend it with more than one person…



Speed dating your way through Valentine’s Day could be the perfect solution to cure your love bug. Rad Events are hosting a Speed Dating Extravaganza at the Balmoral Hotel this February 14, and are looking for Perth singles who are keen to mingle.

Have you ever said the following statement?


If you’re guilty of the above, this could be  the answer to your dating woes. For those of you who have never been speed dating, it’s basically going on multiple dates in the one evening without worrying about the social faux pas associated with seeing multiple people in one night. If you’re shy, stuck in a dating rut or just want to get to know some new people, get a group of friends together or dive head first into the deep end by going solo to this singles event.

Rad Events are giving Perth singles the opportunity to get out of your pajamas, put down your box of chocolates, scull the rest of your wine and give Tinder a short reprieve - Mark, the 27 year old Project Officer can wait one evening. It’s time to get up, scrub up, and step up to meet someone new… in person.

Whether you’re doing it to meet some new people, looking for a potential soulmate or simply being a supportive friend, speed dating this February is one way NOT to stay home alone this V-Day. Plus there will be door prizes available for some added incentive.

What so great about speed dating?

Rad events pride themselves on creating a relaxed, carefree environment so you can make new friends and memories. Celebrate being single this Valentines Day by being yourself, and putting yourself out there in a new dating game. It may only take one minute to make a lasting impression, and better yet, light a new spark. Your host for the evening will be interactive, bubbly and ready to help all you singles mingle. Don't worry about comparing yourself to others, all matches are fully confidential and will be given to daters after the event.

Hi, I'm Tessa. I've lived all over Western Australia getting to sample food, wine, local events and more. I'm merciless when it comes to a long black, love a glass or three of red wine, and can often be found showing off my eccentric but enthusiastic moves whenever there is music playing (shopping centres included). I now document my finds and antics for Perth Underground. Hit me up if you want me to come discover your business! I'd love to pop by for a chat.
