San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2009
Wings-Pizza-N-Things (WPNT) a San Diego, California restaurant and the ISBN (the International Singles Business Network - a newly-founded, professional singles organization), have teamed up to import the popular British trend of business networking for singles to San Diego. They have also created a free, on line video dating website that accompanies it (http://www.ISBNetUSA.com). Reaching out to urban business people and multilingual residents that are single, they feel that, while much attention is focused on families affected by the economic downturn, not nearly as much is done to ease the plight of singles in today's uncertain economy.
Starting on March 4, 2009, at 5:30 pm, WPNT (at 315 10th Ave., in downtown San Diego's upscale East Village) will be sponsoring the ISBN's new, weekly Wednesday Singles Mixers by offering drink specials and a buffet. The ISBN is inviting single professionals and multilingual residents to meet, socialize, and network. For a modest, $7 entry fee, participants enjoy a buffet of pizza, wings, and salad and the company of other urban professional singles.
To allow both on and off line matchmaking, they are also producing the on line social network that allows people outside of San Diego, as well as locals, to participate in on line dating at no cost.
Business networking and singles - a 'business and pleasure mixer'?
According to ISBN founder Daryl Hiro, business networking for singles "is a great combination for time (and cash)-strapped singles who can mix their work networking duties with meeting eligible, and well-grounded, singles at the same time. Since these people already have so much in common, it makes for easy mixing. Because single's parties are often awkward at the start--with members often reluctant to introduce each other--singles networking with business cards acts as a great ice breaker."
An international twist.
The ISBN has taken the idea one step further by inviting multilingual members. Why? According to Hiro, "Most singles want more business, more dates, and more culture or travel. This addresses all three in one arena".
A free online video dating and social network launch rounds out the offering.
The ISBN's Website (http://www.ISBNetUSA.com) offers free video dating and a social network (interactive features), so unlike traditional, online-only dating, where members rarely meet face-to-face, the Wednesday Mixers in conjunction with the Website increase contacts and dates. The ISBN's online newsletter offers insight for its members on dating, networking, and multi-national cultural exchange.
Easing the financial crunch on singles in San Diego and elsewhere.
WPNT is assisting the ISBN by hosting the mixers and offering drink specials. According to WNPT owner, Hector Obando (who himself is multilingual, hailing from Honduras), "We see lots of singles living here downtown and we know it's hard when you live alone. Meeting single people that are educated and interesting can be problematic. We hope that, in giving back to the local community by sponsoring this event and the Website, we can help the single people in San Diego to get out, socialize more and keep their morale up in these difficult times. We are glad that the ISBN is partnering with us and other local firms to provide quality services that enrich their members' lives and address their day-to-day concerns to make their world a little better."
ABOUT the ISBN - The ISBN offers its members tips, advice and newsletters in addition to the mixers and free online video dating to assist them in navigating the world of being single.
