Speed dating on Valentine’s Day to ‘give Tinder the boot’
The Tambrey Tavern has announced they will be hosting a speed dating night for singles this Valentine’s Day.
The night has been billed as a chance to “give Tinder the boot” in favour of face-to-face speed dating.
Recently married Spirit 1260 Karratha breakfast show host Pablo Newton-Farley will be hosting the night despite admitting he was not quite up to scratch with the modern dating game.
“I’ve been out of the dating game for years but nothing can beat actually meeting people face-to-face,” he said. “This is Tinder in real life. “The quicker you get married the quicker you can let yourself go.”
Tickets are $25 a person and all guests will receive a complementary drink on arrival with canapes served throughout the evening.
The Brey has promised anyone who matches on the night a voucher for a dinner and drinks date night at the tavern.
Australian Bureau of Statistics data released in August last year revealed the Pilbara had the top three areas in Australia where men outnumbered women.
Karratha’s ratio was 1.44 men to every woman.
In response to this, the Pilbara News said someone should probably organise a speed dating night.
