The latest face-to-face dating service fad to turn up in Orlando: Lock and Key Events (lockandkeyevents.com).
Women will receive padlocks when they arrive at Red Ox and men will get keys.
Attendees will attempt to match the locks and keys.
Its better than sitting behind the computer to find your match. The Lock and Key format provides a great ice breaker for people to talk to each other.
