Dear Pluto Queer Speed Dating at The Rink


Join us for your very own meet-cute at RISING x Dear Pluto’s queer speed dating/friending party at The Rink! Over the course of the evening, you’ll go on a selection of snappy dates with a heap of hotties, set to the sexy soundtrack of DJ 3rd Orbit —— a selector with an ear for diverse, captivating grooves who’s as comfortable spinning soulful records as they are dropping the dirtiest, skipping breaks and experimental bass from around the world.

To keep temps running high despite the winter wonderland, take advantage of the on-site food trucks and bar that’ll be serving drinks along with Fugazi Woodfired PizzasHot Dog DeliManny’s Doughnuts and more. And if you get too hot under the collar, grab some skates and hit the ice to show off your skills… or lack thereof because who can say no to a cute klutz?

We’ll also have heaps of conversation cards with all the most important first date Qs like “Do you believe that Avril Lavigne is actually a clone?” and “Do you talk to your plants?” as well as a competition to submit your own, where you can win an ice-skating session for two!

We are a part of RISING, who are registered as a: Not-for-profit.
