Move over Match and Tinder: a new dating service is debuting appropriately on Valentine’s Day from 7 to 10 p.m. at Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis.
There will be food, beer, music, dancing and even an old school Dating Game Show. Tickets ($35) include one beer, dinner, music and dessert and are available at CapeCodBeer.com to ages 21 and up.
Jonathan Thompson of JT Chronicles will spin the tunes all night and co-host the Dating Show Game with Teddish founder Coren Stewart.
According to Stewart, Teddish helps people find love and companionship, a better, safer way by vetting prospects with personal interviews and verifying background information while going on fun adventures. The private membership club for singles and single parent families is dedicated to positive social impact and supporting small businesses and nonprofits.
“It’s a fresh twist aimed at disrupting the dating industry by restoring truth, authenticity and excitement back into the dating scene,” said Stewart. The company name is an homage to her father and her son. “My best ‘dates’ were with my father, Ted when we went to Red Sox games. I experienced love at first sight with the birth of my son Teddy who has always been my favorite Valentine. When friends would ask me how my blind dates went, I would reply, ‘I wish he could be more of a combination of the two best men I know… I wish he was more Teddish.’”
