You’ll understand if I can pull it off.

Calling All the Sane Rally to Restore Sanity Attendees
For single attendees, be sure to opens in a new windowcheck out this MeetUp at a lounge called opens in a new windowCo Co. Sal. on Friday. Bummed I won’t be in town for it then – don’t land until around midnight. The event is sponsored by opens in a new windowGreenlight Cards.

From what I’ve researched, opens in a new is a new way to meet people. It’s kind of the mashing of 20th and 21st century dating technologies. As I understand it, you set up an account on the site and are sent a set of cards which contain a number unique to you. When you go out and meet someone interesting give them your card. Doing so means you just gave them the green light to contact you. If they’re interested in contacting you, they’ll log onto the site and send a message. If you don’t hear from them, well, their loss. Cool, huh? So if you can attend the MeetUp, you’ll be given some cards and a complimentary trial membership. I’ll be checking out Co Co. Sal Saturday night.

Oh! Be sure to check out the opens in a new windowGreenlight Cards Blog, good stuff! The voice behind the blog is Gerri. We’ve been exchanging emails and she has great insight into the single scene.
