Back to the Drawing Board(s) (If at First You Don't Succeed...)
It so happens that the establishment where the speed dating event was to occur was shut down sometime between when I paid for the ticket and when the event was to occur (this evening). There was an eviction notice on the front door. Sure I'm uut a few bucks, but ultimately undeterred. There are other locations. After all, I am a proudly stubborn American Dutchman.
