Lisa Darsonval, who started Santa Barbara Matchmaking earlier this year, is organizing the event. “After signing up, each woman gets a heart lock and each man is given a key,” Darsonval said. The idea is to find the lock that matches the key. Every key matches at least two or three locks. “Depending on how outgoing someone may be, they could find his or her first match within minutes,” she said.

Participants approach a member of the opposite sex and ask if they can see if their hardware is a match. Similar events at dozens of U.S. cities usually bring together between 100 and 200 single professionals. Darsonval said this is the first in Santa Barbara.

Those who register in advance at receive a discount. The cost is $22 with advance registration online with a promo code; $27 RSVP to pay at door; and $32 with no RSVP and pay at door. One drink, appetizers and a raffle ticket are included with entry.
