Local Singles Invited to Give Speed Dating a Go at GIO

18 Mar 2020

Harbord Diggers' rooftop restaurant and bar, Gio, will host a night of romance, Italian food and fun with its latest event, Notte D'Amore (Night of Love) on Wednesday 19 July. Northern Beaches singles aged over 18 are invited to enjoy a rambunctious night out with friends, with speed dating hosted by LayDee KinMee.

With recent dating trends moving away from online dating apps*, singles are opting for group dating situations in a social atmosphere. The speed dating concept brings the idea of Tinder or RSVP into a real-life setting, where participants can simply shuffle left, rather than swiping through countless suitors on their phones. Dating will be segmented into 18 to 29s, 30 to 45s and 45 plus groups.

Event host, LayDee KinMee, is known for her standout performances as a yodelling drag queen from when she was on Australia’s Got Talent in 2012. Last year, LayDee was nominated for an ACE (Australian Club Entertainment) Award for Compere of the Year and has just been selected as Australian Ambassador for EuroPride 2019.

The popular Freshwater hotspot, Gio restaurant, boasts delicious southern Italian food and incredible ocean views of Freshwater Beach which makes it the perfect location for young love to bloom. Romantic hopefuls will enjoy a pre-dinner drink and two courses with an Italian entrée followed by woodfired pizzas for just $49 per person.

Harbord Diggers General Manager, Dale Hunt, said Notte D’Amore will be a fantastic night out for singles to bring their friends along and perhaps even find new love.

"Our host, LayDee KinMee, is sure to bring an element of playfulness to this special night. She is well known for her outrageous antics and infectious personality and will be an excellent host for Gio’s Night of Love," said Mr Hunt.

"Singles on the Northern Beaches are invited to come along for an Italian dinner and meet lots of new people while they laugh along with our engaging host.

"This is sure to be a memorable night out for local singles, regardless of whether they meet someone special or not," Mr Hunt concluded. Gio’s Notte D’Amore (Night of Love) be held place on Wednesday 19 July. Tickets are just $49 per person and includes pre-dinner drink, entrée, woodfired pizza and speed dating.
