More Information



Every woman gets a padlock. Every man gets a key. Your goal is to match the right key with the right padlock. Every time you unlock you get a ticket that enters you into the drawing to win great prizes from party sponsors.

After every successful unlock, you get another lock or key so you can get back into the fray and meet more people! Throughout your quest, you are sure to meet tons of people of the opposite sex in a fun and different way.

Lock and Key Events are a great alternative to the club scene and traditional socials since the fun and unique ice-breaker format ensures that you meet tons of new people.

About the Ticket Supplier: OC-SD

Lock and Key Events are the fun, new interactive dating event for singles. It's the ultimate icebreaker. Men get keys, women get locks. As soon as you check in and get your first lock or key, set off to try and find its match. Every key matches at least 2-3 locks, so depending on how outgoing you are, you could find your first match with in minutes! Just approach a member of the opposite sex and ask if you can see if your hardware is a match. It's that easy! Events usually have between 100 and 200 single professionals, so the possibilities are endless. The event rosters are closely monitored to make sure that there is an even amount of men and women. Once you find your match, turn in your hardware and get a new piece and start all over. The more matches you make, the more entries into the end of the night raffle you receive. Some prizes have included hotel stays, gym memberships, cash, bar tabs, free tickets to other singles events and more.
