If I'm not your type, then maybe there's some other totally good-looking lady out there for you, and you might meet her this Friday at Rise Nightclub , located at Blake Street. The trendoid LoDo spot is hosting Denver's very first Lock and Key event, where singles mingle just like those lavalife. The concept is a social experiment that brings together speed-dating, the bar scene and middle-school kitsch. Ladies get locks and guys get keys; then the sexes consort in search of a match.
Waldholz, owner of LockAndKeyEvents. Since then, the love fever has spread with event coordinators now based in 21 cities -- from the lonely plains of Dubuque, Iowa, to the frat-dude territories of Tucson, Arizona.
And every party, Waldholz assures me, draws large crowds of busy professionals ready to get biz-zay with it. They don't have to worry about coming up with creative pick-up lines.
And women don't have to come up with creative ways to reject them. If you unlock your lock, you get to turn it in for a raffle ticket to win posh prizes like spa packages, dinners or hotel stays. And love ain't free, either: To ensure an even ratio of birds to bees all between the ages of 21 and 49 , limited space is available -- so register now at www. By now, you know the drill. The speed-dating event known as Lock and Key gives dating hopefuls the chance to take their keys and unlock the locks of prospective dates in a no-pressure atmosphere.
The event includes a free cocktail, appetizers and samples of the hangover remedy Sober-Up. Raffles and door prizes will happen throughout the night, 7: Saturday at S. I inevitably start dating someone in between deciding to attend a singles event for this column and the singles event itself. So, I have to admit that when I went to the lock and key party at Club One , I had visions of someone already dancing in my head.
Not exactly a state conducive to dating games. The idea behind a lock and key party is that all the women get locks and all the men get keys. The whole concept is almost ridiculously sexual--come on, men walking around trying to stick their keys in every lock they can find. But according to the promoters, it's just an innocent icebreaker to get people talking. Innocent or not, getting someone to go with me was challenging.
I finally convinced one male friend who's usually game for anything, insisting that he would only go if he got an official nickname in this column. I agreed and was going to crown him the King of Game, but the fact that he spent a large portion of the night sitting at the bar, nursing his free whiskey and text-messaging his girlfriend, dropped him a few spots in the line of succession to the Viscount of Game. So, the Viscount and I headed to One. When we arrived we were handed name tags, a couple of raffle tickets, one free drink voucher, a 50 percent coupon for SafeDate, a company that does background checks on potential dates, 'cause that's not creepy at all, and some Sober Up, a self-proclaimed hangover remedy.
Apparently organizers were expecting a lot from this night. The Viscount and I, not so much. He, too, had someone else he was thinking about--I swear I tried to find a single friend to go with me, but not-married or engaged was all I could muster. What an odd feeling to be cursing the fact that my friends are all happy. Anyway, the Viscount was concerned that by coming together we would look like swingers. We took our booty to the bar to get our drinks before the event started.
The Viscount got a rail whiskey, and I received the worst sea breeze I have ever had the misfortune of drinking. But once I sipped it down a bit, the bartender graciously agreed to add more cranberry juice, making it palatable.
In the rock-paper-scissors game of mixed drinks, nothing beats cranberry juice. As soon as the Viscount and I stepped away from each other, we started meeting people. A guy named Dave, who used to work in radio, came up to me. He was super nice, and we had a fun conversation about local media. Meanwhile, the Viscount was continuing his long streak of being catnip for secretaries in their 40s.
Finally, it was time to get started. Up on One's second floor, the hostess explained how the game is played and instructed us not to get too focused on just trying to win raffle tickets and forget to actually talk to people. We lined up and got our locks and keys. It was a pretty interesting crowd, a mix of races and ages and levels of hotness that pretty much ran the gamut. After a bit of initial shyness, people got down to trying to find their match.
Dave tried his key in my lock, but it didn't fit. So did Marc, a bioengineer who likes to dance. I talked to a jocular guy from India with an infectious laugh. I told him I've never been to India. Another guy came up to me and, reading my name tag, said, "Anna like Anna and the King?
And then there was Bernard, a middle-aged man who seemed wasted before the event even got under way. Bernard was insistent that he was going to get my key.
I just smiled and walked nervously away. Meanwhile, the Viscount also was making the rounds. One of his admirers told him, "Most guys I'm meeting here don't know how to put it in. A lot of guys fumbled around with their keys, awkwardly poking at the lock and trying to force their keys in the wrong way. There seemed to be an art to it. The guys who did it best were the ones who took the woman's lock in their hands and then gently put their key in, giving it a firm twist.
I know this all sounds ridiculously graphic. What can I do? The key is a penis, people. The lock's a vagina. It barely counts as a double entendre. Despite the hostess' advice, people were working for those raffle tickets like they were giving away a car, which they were not.
The best prize I remember was a hotel stay. Locks were flying open left and right, and I was still standing there with my very first lock. After a while, I started to get a reputation.
One guy suggested my lock was too tight. Another said I should I stand closer to the lock and key table so I got first crack at the keys. Apparently, it's all about strategy. Another man tried my lock, and when it didn't work laughed and said, "It's not me. My lock is totally frigid. The Viscount completely abandoned me for texting his girlfriend. Finally, I gave up on finding my match and got a new lock. This one was surprisingly slutty and opened for the first guy that gave it a go. My third lock took a bit more trying, and as the night wore on people seemed to be looking to couple up, so as I tried to get my lock opened, I had to judge when I had to leave a conversation to avoid getting asked out.
This task was particularly hard because there were a lot of nice, fun, good-looking guys there who I actually enjoyed talking to. Dave continued to prove funny and charming, as did Tom, a very handsome engineer from Catonsville, who told me that he once went to a speed-dating event and ended up on TV when one of the women turned out to be a reporter. Apparently, Tom's life has a few odd repeating themes of its own. As the end of the night neared, my third lock still hadn't been opened.
And, once again, Bernard sauntered over to me, convinced he could give me some sweet key action. I gave him a forced smile and offered up my lock, and wouldn't you know it, Bernard had the key to my lock. He then, of course, promptly put his arm around me and suggested we get a hotel room. Oh well, they can't all be Daves and Toms. So the verdict for lock and key? It was actually really fun. I talked to a lot of people I might never have met otherwise.
And the lock-and-key action made it easy to keep moving if you did happen to get cornered by a creep. But the real moral of this story--and feel free to cut this out and tape it to your bathroom mirror, or perhaps stitch it on a decorative throw pillow--is: A lock and key party is a lot like dating itself--alternately fun and frustrating with a lot more misses than hits. And the person who ultimately unlocks your lock often comes as a complete surprise. The women get locks, the men get keys and the goal is to mingle and meet people in search of unlocks," says Jaynie Beard, event coordinator.
It's interactive, so people really get into it and have a good time with it," says Beard. The locks and keys give them a good reason to approach people, and they can approach someone without being embarrassed or worrying about how well they are going to be received. It's really the greatest icebreaker for getting people to meet. A luncheon and soft drinks will be served, with beer and wine coolers available for purchase.
The party is expected to attract approximately 75 participants, mostly in the suggested age range of , although all singles are welcome to participate. This party is the first time Beard has joined the Harrisburg Senators for one of her events, and it promises to be unique new experience.
She plans to continue developing themed events in the future, including a Christian Singles Lock and Key Event, tentatively scheduled for late summer. The price of the ticket includes admission to the game that evening. Her Lock and Key Parties often attract participants from her other events, as well as new faces. But even if Mr. Right is a no-show, it's still an opportunity catch a baseball game with some new pals on Date Night.
So if you're unhappily single, step up to the plate and take a swing at a Lock and Key Party. It's a better Date Night pastime than envying happy couples, and with the right pitch you find yourself seeing fireworks before the game even gets started.
Check in begins at 3: For more information, visit online or call Jaynie at Singles ages are invited to participate, with the men getting keys and the women getting locks at the door. The couples will then mingle and attempt to open the locks throughout the night. Prizes, donated by local businesses, also will be awarded. However, prepaid discounts and reservations are required online at www. Tired of lame pick-up lines? Now there's a way to meet other singles without awkward introductions.
Here's how it works: Each woman gets a lock to wear around her neck, and every guy gets a key. Insert your own suggestive joke here. Approach a member of the opposite sex to see if your hardware matches, and if it does, you each get a raffle ticket. At the very least, you could each walk away with cash, a hotel gift certificate, a membership to the Single Gourmet Club in St. Pete, or another freebie. Once you've made a match, go back for another lock or key and try for another prize.
The more networking you do, the greater your chances of winning. Sundrea Ryan, event coordinator for Tampa Bay Lock and Key, said it is a nonthreatening ice breaker for shy singles. All participants receive a one-month membership for Cupid. Lock and Key coordinators monitor registration to ensure somewhat of a gender balance, and every key matches several locks. Ryan said about people, mostly from ages 21 to 45, are expected at Saturday's event.
Thanks for the heads up on this party! I have heard about this event from friends in NYC and they said it was a blast. Then you found the courage to attend a singles event, but that left you feeling like Molly Ringwald's character in Sixteen Candles, as you dodged a Farmer Ted-like geek all night.
But don't give up just yet; you could meet your perfect partner at tonight's Lock and Key party , where the ladies wear locks and the guys have the keys. It did, after all, work for Chantal Conkling and Shane Valentine, who met at a Lock and Key event last year and were just married December 3, even though his key didn't open her lock.
In addition to meeting some cool new friends and a possible date for New Year's Eve, you will have the chance to win fabulous prizes like a cruise, Swedish massages, and dinners for two. Get keyed in from 8: It's funny how life puts you in the right place at the right time.

Then our pals at LA. Yes, sadly, the women's spaces filled up quickly, with the word hitting some sooner than others we have it on good authority that Tara Reid's Blackberry is equipped to scan the internet every half hour for the words "free fun shots" and page her if there's a match , but there are still a few spaces for you local fellas!

Then he remembered the not-so-subtle nut and bolt events he had attended when he was a student at the University of Florida the men were given nuts and the women bolts, and the aim was to find the ones that fit together and, hopefully, a date.
Waldholz wondered, why not do something similar, yet a little less crass, with padlocks and keys? I wanted to start something where we had a lot of people and everyone interacts with everyone else.
The first one was in Miami. The men get keys and the women get locks, and the goal is to unlock. But it doesn't stop there. When a lock is opened the couple get tickets to enter in a raffle for prizes such as certificates for dinners and hotel stays, gym memberships, movie passes or cash; then they get new locks and keys with which to go out and meet more people.
At the Lock and Key Events that Christan Marashio, the company's national program manager, has thrown in New York City, the number of matches a person can have in a night depends on the pace they set for themselves. They say, 'I've met three really great guys, I've got three phone numbers, that's successful. It's that level of uncoerced participation that excited Waldholz and prompted him to launch the company.
If you're a shy person, forget it, you're dead in the water. Those guys normally might not talk to anybody at a party and here they probably spoke to around 50 girls.
Two of them actually hooked up. When Christian Call, a year-old banker in Manhattan, attended an after-work Lock and Key Event his first thought was, this is like high school. The added enticement of an expensive gift helps too.
The first Lock and Key Event four-year-old Jennifer Barr went to in Miami resulted in a two-month relationship, and at the one a couple of weeks ago her best friend met a guy. Barr goes to the events with a few of her girlfriends and they view the events as a fun sidebar to a night out, and the locks and keys as a good excuse to go talk to anyone, such as the gorgeous guy Barr had her eye on the last time. I obviously wasn't his type, but if I had been in a bar I would have never gone up and talked to him.
I would have felt like I was giving a cheesy line; I'm sure guys feel that way all the time. The consensus, especially for men, is that Lock and Key Events work because the girls approach the guys instead of the usual vice versa.
Call says sometimes the girls, who wear the padlocks on a string around their necks, just come up and stick out their locks. No surprise the sexual innuendo gets everyone a little silly.
We've got things like, Do you think I will fit? Or, Am I too big for you? Waldholz doesn't advertise the events as singles events because of the fact that once you unlock you don't have to spend the evening with that person, but instead you can say, See ya, I'm on my way to the next person.
And even if you don't successfully open the lock of someone who catches your interest, all is not lost, as Call found out when he hooked up with a fellow banker. I'd really love to talk to you.

From the origin to the contemporary renovation. I am now fascinated by the subject matter of ottoman and byzantine mosques. They had never experienced such a good architecture tour before!
In the past, during our previous office trips to many other cities in North America we have tried to find similar tours and we never really found anything like it.
This was not the case. Arne did a wonderful job of combining architecturally interesting sites with historical relevant locales, and with city features not readily accessible to the average tourist. WFLD was founded by a joint venture of the parties that each competed individually for the license and construction permit to operate on UHF channel There were two versions of the showcase: Bishop doing scary voices and later wearing a long green wig while portraying the character.
Bishop became such a hit with viewers that the show was popularly called "Svengoolie" after his character although the title of the program did not change , and this version lasted until late in the summer of The second version premiered on June 16, , with Rich Koz as "Son of Svengoolie", and ran on channel 32 until January 25, To counterprogram against its more established VHF rivals, channel 32 offered older cartoons , older off-network sitcoms, documentaries , drama series, westerns and live sporting events ; although, it easily trailed its biggest competitor, WGN-TV channel 9, formerly a CW affiliate, now again as an independent station , in the ratings among Chicago's independent stations.
The station broadcast daily from Beginning in , WFLD signed on daily before 6: WFLD began to beat WGN-TV in ratings as a result of its stronger programming acquisitions, [ citation needed ] and the two stations continued to go head-to-head throughout the s. WFLD scored no big ticket program acquisitions in or ; however, in , the station won the local syndication rights to popular series such as Three's Company , Taxi and Mork and Mindy.
In , Field Enterprises began a gradual sale of its five television stations on an individual basis—a process which continued into the following year—due to disagreements between brothers Marshall Field V and Frederick "Ted" Field on how to operate the company, which strained their working relationship.
Incidentally, the year prior in , the Field brothers sought a prospective buyer for WFLD in the event that the company would be put up for sale. WFLD's programming slate changed slightly, but the station's on-air graphics and branding were abruptly changed to reflect the new ownership, with the station adopting "Metromedia 32" as its on-air brand using a similar branding scheme that was used at new sister station WNEW.
Still, the old Field-era logos were used on-air by accident on some occasions through the summer of Metromedia added several first-run syndicated programs that were not previously carried in the Chicago market—as the market had only two commercial independent stations at the time as WSNS-TV channel 44, now a Telemundo owned-and-operated station became a full-time affiliate of the ONTV subscription service the previous year—onto the station's schedule, particularly in prime time, like The Merv Griffin Show which WFLD previously carried a few years prior, but subsequently moved to WSNS where it ran until that station became a full-time ONTV outlet.
WFLD remained the top-rated independent station in Chicago throughout Metromedia's ownership of the station. The company formally announced the launch of the new network, the Fox Broadcasting Company , on May 7, , with the former Metromedia stations serving as its nuclei. Consequently, through the purchase, WFLD became one of the charter owned-and-operated stations of the Fox Broadcasting Company when the network launched seven months later on October 9. Following the sale to Fox, the station—which began branding on-air as "Fox 32"—continued to compete aggressively in the market, acquiring off-network syndicated programs such as Family Ties and The Cosby Show for its schedule.
The station's continued to carry its cartoon block on weekday afternoons, and top-rated off-network sitcoms in the evening hours; it also added more first-run talk and court shows. Although it was now part of a network, as was the case with other Fox stations during the network's early years, Channel 32, for all intents and purposes, continued to be programmed as a de facto independent station as Fox's initial programming consisted solely of a late-night talk show , The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers ;  even when Fox launched its prime time lineup in April , the network only aired programs during that daypart on Saturday and Sundays early on; Fox would gradually debut additional nights of programming over the next six years until it adopted a seven-night-a-week schedule in September The afternoon and Saturday morning animation blocks were replaced by the network-supplied Fox Children's Network block later known as Fox Kids in September In , after several years of being known on the air as "Fox 32" although it began to visually de-emphasize references to channel 32 on-air in , the station changed its on-air branding to "Fox Chicago".
The station's digital signal continued to broadcasts on its pre-transition UHF channel WFLD was the only television station in the Chicago market that participated in the " Analog Nightlight " program until its analog transmitter atop the John Hancock Center was shut down permanently on June 26, In October , the station filed a lawsuit against the White Sox club to terminate its television contract with the team, which was set to last through , accusing team owners Jerry Reinsdorf and Eddie Einhorn of "gutting and stripmining the[ Through Fox's coverage of Major League Baseball , WFLD has televised two of the three World Series with Chicago teams which have occurred in the television era; the White Sox in , and the Cubs in , both ending in series victories for each team and ending lengthy droughts pre-dating even the Golden Age of Radio.
