Chicago Dating for Queer Nerds

 

Wish you had a crystal ball? Find out it if love is in your stars during a fate-themed singles bash. See your future over board games and trivia with other brainy LGBT bachelors and bachelorettes.

Romance is right around the corner during a Chance Encounters icebreaker. Partygoers get a list of 12 prompts. Guests pair up and roll dice to determine the topic of conversation. Each of them takes a turn responding until time is up, then they move on to meet more matches.

Consult the tea leaves with drink specials like the White Russian Roulette (vodka, coffee liqueur, cream and a randomly determined "mystery" liqueur), the Magic 8 Ball Brew (stout with a splash of blue curacao) and the Drawing Straw-berries Martini (gin, dry vermouth and strawberry schnapps garnished with a strawberry).

And, good fortune beckons with giveaways like a waving lucky cat statue and a Mario question box Yahtzee game.
