There was lots of excitement at Boiler House restaurant on Thursday August 9th 2012 as some of Toronto’s most eligible singles hobnobbed in this historic venue. Originally designed to rock the patio, the evening’s Screwed in the Distillery singles event moved inside when thunderheads appeared overhead late in the afternoon.
While most folks paid $20 to get in the door, and they could double their order for $35, and that price included some snazzy door prizes, welcome cocktail, and appetizers. Seriously there was exotic flavoured popcorn bags and gift certificates for sinfully sensual things.
The best singles events are the ones that are full to capacity with interesting people and this occasion was no exception. There were lawyers and designers, IT specialists and lots of people running their own businesses. The event was catered and there was plenty of food.
Shanny has a great caterer. Heaps of food was laid out on the table and the piles contained broccoli cheese sausages and fruits and lots of breads.
But that wasn’t what brought the people in…
As soon as people walked through the door they were confronted with a bucket of nuts and bolts and that hardware was akin to the main attraction.
Upon arrival each guest was given either a nut or a bolt; the men were given bolts. There were eight different sizes. The challenge was to match them up and claim the reward of two free drinks – screwdrivers. At the end of the night almost all of the free drinks were taken and almost everyone was matched up .
