Looking For A Valentine? Metro To Host ‘Speed Dating On The Red Line’
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Angelenos hoping to be hit by Cupid’s arrow may want to go underground this Valentine’s Day.
KNX 1070′s Claudia Peschiutta reports riders will have a chance to participate later this week in a lunchtime “Speed Dating On The Red Line” event at seven Red Line stations throughout Los Angeles.
Metro staff will be available to register speed daters from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday at the following stations: Union Station, Civic Center/Grand Park, 7th Street/Metro, Wilshire/Vermont, Vermont/Santa Monica, Hollywood/Highland and North Hollywood.
Interested riders will receive a wristband and board one of the specially decorated Speed Dating Train Cars, which will be the last car on trains heading to North Hollywood and the first car on trains heading toward Union Station.
Once on board, Metro staff will explain the event guidelines to participants.
“If you’re one of those who thinks that it would be a great story to tell your grandkids that you met your future husband or wife on a train, then this is the event to go to,” Metro spokesperson Anna Chen said.
Two Metro Cupids also will be riding the Red Line during the event, according to officials.
And for those who do find their future spouse: Union Station does host weddings, Chen said.
