Live Baltimore Release:
Live Baltimore is hosting Roommate Speed Date on Thursday, February 7 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at The Fitzgerald, 1201 West Mt. Royal Avenue 21217. But leave your romantic notions at the door—this speed dating-inspired event is designed to match up savvy Baltimore City residents (or future residents) with like-minded roommates to split living expenses.
“Some people might own a home and have a spare bedroom they’re just using for storage. Others may need a place to live and realize they can afford a larger place in a more convenient neighborhood by finding a roommate,” says Steven Gondol, Executive Director.
The event will include light refreshments, timed face-to-face sessions with each “dater,” and a tour of The Fitzgerald apartment building. Daters will complete a Match Sheet for each potential roommate during the face-to-face sessions covering topics such as price range, work schedule, recycling, furniture, smoking, and home décor preferences.
The pre-determined topics leave nothing un-discovered and ensure that everything, even the awkward stuff, is discussed. Once the face-to-face sessions are complete, Live Baltimore staff will tally the Match Sheets and share contact information of successful matches with daters.
