By  | 

Valentine’s Day can be a heart wrenching date… for some. If not planned properly, this particular day nestled within the month of February can create an emotional overturn you may or may not be ready for. While shopping malls and corner stores conveniently highlight their Valentine’s Day deals and/or surged prices, victims of break ups and emotional depression can find themselves entering a state of confusion disguised as emotional turmoil. While society continues to perpetuate the idea of sex and lust as necessary components of the human make up, you may be constantly reminded that you, the reader of this piece, are single. But despite your undesired relationship status, you are in fact participating inone of the most monumental moments of your life: emotional freedom. Bask in  your ability to be selfish. To be one with self and so intertwined with your own existence that you lack the need for a companion. And if you choose to seek companionship it will simply be for conversation, networking, or a possible business collab that will fill your pockets and increase your social media following. Screw Valentine’s Day. Date because you enjoy meeting new people, while casually maintaining an understanding of the way in which the universe works: what and who is meant for you will be for you, and it will not pass you by. Have fun, live life, and speed date – just for the heck of it.

#DrunkInLove – A Speed Dating Experience with a Twist!

No boo? No problem. Annz + Alexx curated an event geared towards the hopeless romantic, the cold hearted cutie, and/or the professional busy body more interested in business connects than a steady relationship.

Drunk in Love – A Speed Dating Experience with a Twist!, served as a creative medium for high profile millennials. Occurring just one day after February 14th, #DrunkInLove gave hope to those in need of a V-Day rebound and/or single socialites with similar interests and desires.

Annz + Alexx secured the location: Mbar Atlanta – a quaint yet lavish venue located on Auburn Avenue. After finalizing the event space they began to promote ten-dollar tickets, each ticket encompassing entry, participation in a round of speed dating, and free alcoholic beverages.

Yes, you read that correctly; free alcoholic beverages. Annz + Alexx pride themselves on their ability to create interactive events that surpass normal expectations. This time around, they introduced a liquor infusion just to spice things up. To rid attendees of possible first date jitters, or the second seat nerves, they provided a mixed drink each time a participant switched their seat.

With each mixed shot attendees were encouraged to participate in fluid, transparent dialogue. The consumption of alcohol not only fueled the spirits of all those involved, but eased anticipated tension amongst each of the attendees.

From 6-10 PM #DrunkInLove fueled meaningful conversations and cool interactions, cultivating memorable moments betwist strangers.

We jammed to the sounds of two DJ’s – DJ FOXXY and DJ OBaby while admiring the decor provided by Glitter Works Inc. And mastered the Do’s and Don’ts of speed dating thanks to printed pamphlets.

This romantic act of musical chairs was such a success, Annz + Alexx were presented with the opportunity to promote a monthly happening at the coveted venue.

Interested in joining the fun? Stay tuned for our next event!
