Valentine’s Day Date-a-Thon | The D | February 14, 2014

Hundreds turned out to help the D break the record for the largest speed-dating event—Well, that and to maybe find a date.

I arrived for the D’s Date-a-thon to find a line of potential love-connection candidates along the Fremont Street Experience, waiting to take a seat for the casino’s attempt to beat the world record for the largest speed-dating event. It was interesting to observe how individuals interacted across from each other, connections clearly being made in some cases, with the $1 drinks keeping people relaxed. I circled the crowd, making images as I looked for that certain spark. Carl Dobbins and Jessica Kruze stood out, as dramatic gestures turned to hand kissing and soon to her toes in his mouth. I don’t know where the night led those two, but they certainly appeared to be enjoying one another’s company.

  • If the venue continues to book rising stars, it might just be the best place to see them before they get big.

  • There were loud sing-alongs and vigorous mosh pits throughout the night, but it was all still fueled by nostalgia.

  • The band, which turns Velvet Underground songs into pizza anthems, hits LVCS on November 16.
