Hot Potato Hearts: Speed Dating & Singles Dance Party

The MCA is proud to collaborate with Katie Conway, founder and host of Hot Potato Hearts for this special event.

Hot Potato Hearts is a new platform created to help people build meaningful connections in a low-pressure, safe environment. Our goal is to create a welcoming, fun, inclusive, and relaxed atmosphere for cultivating relationships—whether romantic or platonic. During the speed dating round, participants talk to everyone regardless of sexual orientation, so everyone has a chance to snag a date or make some new friends! Then dance the night away with other singles during a set by DJ EvieTheCool, who will also be DJing from 5 to 9 PM.

Proof of vaccination is required to participate.

The MCA Box Office starts a waiting list one hour before a program begins. At that time, numbers are given out to patrons on a first-come, first-served basis, one number per patron per ticket. As space become available, Box Office staff call out waiting list numbers.

Patrons must be present to take a number. Because staff cannot predict when or if tickets will become available, it is important for those on the waiting list to remain within hearing distance. If a number is called and no one responds, Box Office staff will dismiss the number and call the next number.
