As the night unfolded, I began to realize this concept is quite genius!

After watching the crowd (who were all so friendly), they were so much more receptive to one another than the usual club gathering.

In a conventional lounge atmosphere, approaching someone may be difficult, but not here. That would be a raffle ticket that may lead to a plethora of prizes and the chance to get another lock/key.

No awkward hellos here so the conversation can just flow (and love can begin! Did I also mention the numerous, successful relationships and weddings that all began from a single Lock and Key event.

One happy couple even invited the owner of Lock and Key, Darren, to their wedding in Italy.

After all, it was his event that began the start of their new life.

Whether youre looking for love or just a good time with some great people, try a Lock and Key Event. With Lock and Key events, you can talk in person, read body language and can immediately tell if there is chemistry or not without having to email or chat back and forth a bunch of times, Reich says.

Its better than sitting behind the computer to find your match. The Lock and Key format provides a great ice breaker for people to talk to each other.

Sometimes people dont want to approach someone they are interested in at a club, but at Lock and Key, thats the whole point so there is no awkwardness.

Lock and Key events, described as a fun, interactive way to meet potential love interests, have been held at venues in nearly 100 cities around the country.

Fridays gathering at the Red Ox Tavern in Utica will be the second Lock and Key event thats been held in the metro Detroit area.
