I am putting together new program called Roommates Wanted on Sunday, Feb 21st. This will give people a chance to meet potential roommates in person, in a non-threatening, group environment. It’s kinda like a single’s event but for roommates. Frankly, I’m sick of people meeting each other on craigslist, going to others’ apts and being expected that the size of the kitchen is the only variable in whether they will accept the apt or not. The roommate is an important decision and we should have plenty of choices.
We are having the first event at duckduck, 161 Montrose Ave, Bushwick/Wburg, Brooklyn. Admission is free, just pay for the drinks as usual (happy hour pricing). I will have a simple ice breaker and surprise ways to identify where you want to live and what you are looking for in an apt.
Speaking as someone who has had her share of colorful apartment share experiences, I for one think this is an excellent idea. So much so that I wrote Jeff telling him so. I also recommended hosting a series of floating events around north Brooklyn. He assured me this was, in fact, his plan and this event is a trial run.
