This may be good in a city where you can potentially draw a large crowd, but what about out in the rural setting? The Vermont Chapter of NOFA recently began what they call "weed dating" - a spin-off of the traditional matching process.
NOFA-VT hosted an event in late summer where singles came to an organic farm for two purposes: to meet other single people and weed a farm. Everyone is paired up and given the task of weeding one row. Once they are finished, they must move on to a new row with a new partner.
This is a great idea for many reasons: it gets people outdoors, it helps farms that may need the extra hands, and it hopefully makes some love connections! Great job NOFA-VT!
