The virtual dating app is about to turn into reality.
Milwaukee is becoming part of the Bumble hive this weekend as it gears up to host the social-networking app’s Summer Series event.
Bumble members in the Milwaukee area will have an opportunity to meet and mingle with each other at Good City Brewing (2108 N. Farwell Ave.) this Saturday as part of Bumble’s Summer Series initiative. This event series focuses on bringing users together at popular spots (or hives, if you will) across 19 major U.S. cities, complete with complementary food, drinks and entertainment to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
“Each Bumble Summer Series event is localized so it caters to the experience that the locals are looking for in their city,” says Caroline Roche, Bumble’s Chief of Staff. “Considering Milwaukee’s diversity, culture and the celebrated food and music scene, it was a no brainer for us to choose Milwaukee as one of the 19 cities.”
At Good City Brewing from 3 to 6 p.m., Bumble users just have to show their profiles (in any of their modes, whether it’s Bumble Date, BFF or Bizz) to get into the event that includes both a DJ and a photographer.
Bumble will be providing transportation after the event to the Brewer’s game for guests who are inclined to go on their own dime. The Summer Series acts as a pregame for game day. And, of course, everyone will get to meet fellow members in the area to network and build relationships of all types. “We want Bumble users to know that amazing connections could be just around the corner,” Roche says.
Both Bumble and Good City Brewing feel the space is a great place for people to experience Milwaukee culture. “Good City Brewing is located at the heart of Milwaukee’s vibrant East Side and is well-known for their tasty craft beer and bites, as well as their amazing rooftop,” says Roche.
Christine Bradford, Good City Brewing’s sales events manager, also believes the east side location provides a platform that is perfect for guests to relax and enjoy themselves while interacting with new people. “I think (people) can expect to have really great beer, great food, have fun and meet people,” she says. Both organizations also hope people leave this event with strong connections with locals whether they be professional, romantic or just friendly.
