One cool thing about being single is getting out, trying new and random fun things. And that includes singles groups. (I promise, the people who go are not all the guys from the 80s montage you just watched.)

The Durham Performing Arts Center, aside from looking cool and having cool shows, has started a singles club. Here is what their Web site says:

Ready to mingle? The Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) introduces a new club for singles: MixNMingle. MixNMingle is for single adults, and offers the unique opportunity to meet up with other singles in the community while enjoying world-class entertainment. The club is free to join and will feature discounted outings to select Broadway series shows.

Thanks to all who attended our kick-off night during Cirque Dreams Illumination! Stay tuned for announcement of our next event. To keep updated on new events and to join this club, email with your contact information. And visit us on

I emailed them to get the scoop. So far, I haven’t heard back. Meetup, as I’ve mentioned before, is a great place to meet people in general, and also has several singles groups in the area, whether you’re a 50-year-old Christian widow or a gay 20-something.  If anyone joins this one, I’d love to hear how it goes!
