Feed dating: The sequel

Feed dating: The sequel

Future Simchas has apparently started a trend.

The dating Website, an offshoot of Bergenfield-based Onlysimchas.com, held Dishes & Dating last month at Teaneck’s Nobo restaurant, a steakhouse and the only kosher restaurant with a liquor license in Bergen County. Organizers billed it as a “feed dating” event, combining speed dating with dining. With more than 50 participants, organizers hailed the first-of-its-kind event a success.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Young Israel of Teaneck and YU Connects are holding their own speed dating event on Aug. 29 at Teaneck’s Mocha Bleu, a dairy restaurant. Like Dishes & Dating this event is geared toward modern Orthodox singles, but it’s aiming at the 23-30 demographic, while the Nobo event targeted singles 28-38.
