Speed dating in colorado
The over-the-top Mexican restaurant opened in a mall in 1974 and has been a Denver-area institution for decades on West Colfax Avenue.
Several daters said they hadn't been inside Casa Bonita since they were kids.
She says she creates a space where "intentional dating" can take place, with an aim towards marriage, not just "falling into the big dating pool in Denver," she said.
Lakewood's historic Casa Bonita restaurant was the site of Basquez's most recent Catholic speed-dating event, Sunday.
She said many are professionals, doctors, dentists, FBI agents, people who travel for work and don't really socialize with people who would make good marriage partners.
"I pretty much checked my preconceived notions of food at the door," said one dater.
One of the dating services for meeting local people is Fort Collins speed dating.
Based on a series of short planned introductions Fort Collins speed dating allow singles to quickly meet people face to face in a safe and fun environment.
Daters did not partake of the arcade games or stumble through Black Bart's Cave, the haunted tunnel. Basquez assigned them to partners, then rang a bell to signal it was time to switch seats and make notes on a cheat sheet.
So far, Basquez says her company, Catholic Speed Dating, and affiliated blind dating match service Faith Match, have been credited with 30 marriages – not necessarily between people who met at the events, but including people who used her service and then found someone to marry.
