Cheap date! Union Hall hosts ‘Hundredaire Matchmaker’ next Monday

The Brooklyn Paper

It pays to be a cheap date.

If “Millionaire Matchmaker” is a bit out of your league, head to Union Hall on Jan. 10 for “Hundredaire Matchmaker,” a singles event where you can meet, greet and get set up with other broke people.

Here’s how it works: two male contestants, with literally hundreds of dollars in their bank accounts, will be introduced to female contestants who are OK with settling. They’ll go on mini-dates with each woman, eventually narrowing it down to one person to date more formally.

The contestants will be chosen before the show, but audience members have the chance to get involved in the festivities through games such as “truth or dare-aoke.” Plus, there’s guaranteed to be other poor, single people with whom to share a PBR.

“Once a room full of single people gets drunk, anything can happen,” said Liam McEneaney, who is hosting the show with fellow comedian Myka Fox. “Alcohol and loneliness are the perfect combination.

“The point is for everyone in the room to have a good time, and hopefully meet someone. Even if they don’t meet ‘the one,’ it might be the one they go home with,” added McEneaney. “It’s ‘Hundredaire Matchmaker.’ We’re asking everyone to set their sights a little bit lower.”

“Hundredaire Matchmaker” at Union Hall [702 Union St. near Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 638-4400], Jan. 10 at 8 pm. $5. For info, visit www.unionhallny.com.
