    New Dating Concept: Meeting Live People
    "Game Night Meets the Club Scene" may convince you to get off the computer and get out the house.

    It doesn't seem that long ago that the concept of meeting someone through a personal ad was taboo. In fact, you would have been ashamed if a co-worker found out you posted an ad in a newspaper.

    Those days are long gone. There's no shame in admitting you met someone on, and your profile -- pics, interests and all -- are out there for the world to see.

    That's the reasoning behind a new after-work concept called North Meet South. It's the brainchild of Kimberly Brown, who wanted to create a setting for singles to meet in a fun setting while eliminating the stress of the typical hookup scene.

    The event is called "Game Night Meets the Club Scene" and is held every Friday from 6 - 11 p.m. at Blu 47 Restaurant & Lounge (4655 S. King Drive).

    "You have board games, you have people dancing in some areas, others eating, some at the bar -- it's just a really nice mix of all the Friday nightlife that could happen," Brown said.

    The events are targeted to the 30 and older crowd and there's an emphasis on attracting a diverse group of people.

    Admission is free with a business card. Log on to for more information.
