Attention all single men off the Red and Brown Line! Skip the online dating and bar scenes this Wednesday and check out a MeSoFar dating event just for you. Sometimes the shortest distance between two people is an (almost) straight line.

Me So Far presents Red Line / Brown Line: Sometimes the shortest distance between two people is an (almost) straight line.

When: Wednesday, Nov. 28th 6:30pm - 9pm
Where: 58 E. Ontario, Sushi Taiyo's Private Upstairs Lounge
Price: $35
What else: We're raising money for Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts. Also Gapers Block's Chicago Bucket List columnist Niki Fritz will be one of the presenters giving a four-minute PowerPoint on her life. ( And yes there will be embarrassingly childhood photos.)

Me So Far (2010) is an experiential approach to dating based on the simple insight that attraction is more often gradual rather than instant. But in today's fast-paced, click-through world of dating, gradual connection isn't always easy. Me So Far's in-person, story-driven format allows people to show multiple sides of themselves and discover connections that usually take several dates - or even several years - to make. Me So Far is honored to have been featured in The New York Times, PRI's America Abroad, Time Out Chicago, and on WBEZ.
