Melbourne radio will feel a huge void at the end of 2013 as Fox FM’s breakfast duo, Matt & Jo, announced that they are finishing their show after an amazing 10 years on air together. As one final hurrah they held their final annual singles party ever – and this years theme was “Fling Races”, in keeping with the horse-y vibe that’s in the air in Melbourne right now. Basically, it allowed singles to mingle with the chance of a fling <bow chicka wow wow!!>
Of course being the single gal I am (and given any chance to wear a pretty frock) I wanted in. So as soon as I heard that you could win a spot at the coveted event I texted all my single girlfriends to enter too so we had a larger chance of winning, and we did! My sis and I both won a spot, allowing us to bring along a friend each, cue Tereza and Erin (of Brock&Eddie Millinery fame). We all got ourselves dolled up and sauntered down to the Johnny Walker Bar at the Crown Casino.
The four of us had a fun night dancing and chatting away to, let me be frank, some odd characters, and I’m sad to say (cos I know you’re all begging to ask) I didn’t meet anyone <insert violins here>. Regardless, it was great and I’m so glad that I got to be apart of the final Matt & Jo party.
Have you ever been to a singles party? Did you have more success than I did? Do tell….
