For an "international" night, I think there were three of us who were actually international.

Host was late, so we had a late start. Seemed unorganized. Venue too noisy to hear host's instructions and rotation. Quality of people who went were so, so.

Here’s how it works: over the course of an hour, you’ll spend four minutes with a new friend of the opposite sex in laid-back and comfortable surroundings. At the beginning of this special evening, you will be assigned a unique number. You’ll also receive a sheet of paper keep track of your new friends. You will then have a chance to contact other attendees through our system after the event. No pressure, no frantic rushing around; just you, the mesmerizing ambiance of Zen Bistro, and the new professionals who will no longer be strangers at the end of the evening!
