Get Your Love On – Flirty Fun for Valentine’s Day

Get Your Love On – Flirty Fun for Valentine’s Day

It’s that time of the year again – Valentine’s Day is here. Get your love game on and get ready for so me flirty fun.

In Times Square, The League, a dating app catering to the intelligent, educated, and ambitious, spent 2016 expanding to new cities and launching Android. In 2017, The League is focusing on R&D, and plans to offer its busiest, most successful users the ability to date singles from any ‘live’ League city (Chicago, LA, Boston, DC, SF and NYC) all from within the comforts of the latest Oculus Rift headset.

The League team is piloting this concept with Oculus and River Studios for the first time at their ‘Love Without Limits’ West­world themed Valentine’s Day parties happening across the nation this Friday, Monday and Tuesday at W Hotels. Users attending the parties will be matched up randomly by The League’s algorithms to go on a ‘blind’ Virtual Reality first date, where they can experience set activities together for around 5 minutes, either alone or as part of a double date with a couple from a sister city. The two singles will only get to see, meet, and debrief with each other in person after they’ve taken their headsets off. For more information please visit here.

There was already some love in the air at the 62nd Viennese Opera Ball in New York City was held at the Waldorf Astoria in the Grand Ballroom under the auspices of the U.S. Austrian Chamber of Commerce.
