In a city full of young and young-at-heart single people, it seems like everyone is on the make these days. Fortunately, there are plenty of varied and... colorful places to meet that perfect someone. Develop a crush at one of the city's best parties, Infatuation at Vessel, or zoom in on that hottie at Jaws 3 in 3D in Dolores Park. Get your dance on while you get your romance on at Underground SF when Remarc, the Godfather of Jungle throws it down or at The Knockout with Jeremy Jay. Concerts and music fests are total scenes - the Rock the Bells Festival at Shoreline Amphitheatre will give you the chance to screen prospects via musical taste. And if dressing up in costumes and speaking in olde English is what does it for you, then your mecca will be the Golden Gate Renaissance Faire at Speedway Meadow. You may very well meet your fair lady or fair prince!
