The Meatups have moved to bkhookup.com
There's nothing like a weekend filled with loved ones and turkey to remind you that the holidays are much more fun when you're hooking up with someone.
So Brooklyn Based and FIPS are throwing a holiday office party Wednesday, Dec. 9 that will make it much easier to meet that special person. You don't have to work for Home Base Supply Co. to be invited, but you do have to abide by our company policies, which include hitting on your colleagues, free massages, getting Shootbooth portraits with hot Santas (hot farmers Michael Grady Robertson of Queens County Farm, Annie Novak and Ben Flanner of Rooftop Farms, plus hot Meat Hook butcher, Ben Turley), eating delicious Asiadogs, and getting down with a DJ who only goes by his porn name, Jonny Con Carne.
We're not guaranteeing everyone will find true love, but based on what happened at the last 600-strong Meatup, we can predict many of you will meet your match.
Now, some of you may just hook up the Bell House, but a few of you will continue to date long after you go home together. Still others may leave feeling it was awkward to go up to a stranger (even though that stranger is at a singles party and dying to meet someone too), but we will have some special incentives this time to ease the introductions. Of course, we're big fans of steeling your nerves with strong drinks, like the free Chivas scotch that will be flowing from 7-8pm or the $3 Busch beers all night long.
The hilarious Sara Schaefer, who hosted the last Meatup's Wet T-shirt contest (it's true, men lined up to bare their chests), will also be awarding employees who've been naughty and nice. You can vie for the "Hottest Employee of the Year" honor now, by faxing in a racy photocopy to 646-964-6540. (If you don't have a fax, we'll accept a scan via email.)
You can hem and haw and wait until the day of to buy tickets, but buying one now (here) will guarantee two things: you'll save $3, enough for one more Busch, and you'll allow us more time to do some expert matchmaking in advance.
And remember, this whole thing's a numbers game, so pass this on to your (platonic) girlfriends and guy friends. We may make it easy to score, but only if there are enough players to field two teams.
