Idaho Farmer Hosts ‘Weed Dating’

For one night a year, a neighborhood farm in northwest Boise turns into a respite for singles who are tired of the same old dating scene. A poster board planted at the entrance of Earthly Delights Farm in late June advertised “Weed Dating,” with a heart-stamped arrow guiding visitors to a sign-in table, where they were each assigned a number and invited to sample beer provided by a local brewer. The farm is among a handful across the country offering an unconventional form of speed dating. Typically, speed daters meet at a bar or restaurant and switch conversational partners every few minutes, in hopes of finding someone compatible. With weed dating, this rapid-fire courtship takes place on the farm, with singles working together in the fields. The payoff for their toil? A chance at romance/Jessie L. Bonner, AP. More here.

Question: Would you consider "weed dating" if you were single?
