Burger Burger Is Bringing Back Its Matchmaking Event for Valentine's Day

Where to find your next hunk of burning love.

Not strictly a destination for heavenly buns, much-loved burger joint Burger Burger will play cupid this Valentine's Day (well, the day before) with its annual Blind Dates event.

Over the past four years the burgerie has held the matchmaking event as an antagonist to online swiping and questionable dating terms like kittenfishing, ghosting and breadcrumbing. The Valentine's celebration invites singles to put their hearts on the line to see if they can meet their next hunk of burning love (or date for the night, at least). Last year it attracted more than 300 singles for the speed dating element with free food and ample opportunities to mingle.

Hopefuls this year will be able to enter themselves or a single friend into the dating pool via the Burger Burger website. From there, the expert matchmakers will choose 300 lucky lovers to attend the Blind Dates party to partake in hosted speed dating, followed by mingling, awkward chats, drinks and nibbles, and hopefully a few sneaky pashes.

The event will be held at the Morningside Glasshouse on Wednesday, 13 February. The $25 ticket price will include the goods from Almighty, Coffee Supreme, Duck Island Ice Cream, East Imperial, Garage Project, The Sawmill Brewery, Scapegrace Gin, Serious Food Co and Vista Drinks.

Visit the Burger Burger website for more information.
