Why you should go

If you’re single

Tired of picnicking at Barton Springs with Austinites who complain about how great the city used to be (before you moved here, of course), or swiping left on dozens of people who insist they know the “best” place for tacos?

Consider meeting the love of your life — or, if you want, love of one night — at a public radio event. Sexy, we know.

You’ll break the ice by watching our fun show and then get a chance to take things further. Is there a better meet-cute? We don’t think so.

For everyone else

If you’re happily coupled, think of it as the ultimate date night. A show featuring titillating and intellectually stimulating conversation about love in our city, plus a chance to prove you’ve got the best pickup line in all of Austin? There’s nothing more romantic.

We hope to see you there.

Please RSVP for this free event.
