DRIP, Orlando | February, 2017
There’s no time like the first time.
Orlando, Fl – What if someone designed the perfect date for you and your significant other? A night that felt like a first date, tantalizing and awakening your senses while building excitement and intimacy in your relationship. An interactive evening of color, exploration and dripping paint as you go on a playful journey in a place where people love to be in love. DRIP, on International Drive, is bringing back their popular event that does just that, The Blind Date, an artistic adventure for couples, is coming back to Orlando for select dates during the month of February, 2017.
DRIP premiered The Blind Date in 2016 for one week only and sold out every date; this year DRIP is bringing it back with plenty of new surprises for 4 weekends in February plus Valentine’s Day. The Blind Date will take place at DRIP’s warehouse-like space and bar at 8747 International Dr. Ste. 102, Orlando, Fl. 32803.
“The Blind Date brings out open minded people wanting to experience something artistic and totally different than the usual date night out.” explains DRIP founder and creative director Jessica Mariko.
The Blind Date starts with each couple being given a special event blindfold that they put on before entering the building and get to take home as a gift. The evening begins with a special blindfolded challenge that warms guests up for the rest of the evening. The couples will also receive special edition t-shirts to wear and paint. DRIP artists can custom design and cut guest’s shirts and turn them into corsets, dresses, tank tops and more.
Color themed stations will be sprinkled throughout DRIP and each station will be hosted by one of the characters from the DRIP show. Each character is named after a color; Yellow, Blue and Red. Yellow’s room is a romantic word game, Blue’s room is an intimate experience involving paint, and Red’s room is a bit spicier and designed to build physical intimacy.
DRIP’s Color Bar will be available throughout the evening (minus breaks for performances). Red, Blue, Orange and Yellow beers, cocktails, shots as well as wine and non alcoholic beverages will be available.
The adventure continues with a full theatrical show featuring new characters and contemporary dancers telling an emotional love story while performing in paint, flying water and colored sand backed by a live rock band.
Post show, guests will enter the miracle berry after party. In the spirit of stimulating all of your senses, each guest will be given a pill to eat made from miracle berry fruit. The pill transforms ordinary foods into something extraordinary. Like magic, sour foods (like lemons) taste like the sweetest candy on Earth. A special miracle berry cocktail menu will be available so guests can experiment with their new and improved taste buds. The after party will also include dancing, a 10 foot interactive paint shower and the Color Bar.
Tickets to The Blind Date are $29 – $89 and are limited to only 40 couples per evening. It is recommended for guests to dress to get colorful. Shorts and flip flops are perfect. You must be at least 18 years old to attend. For a full listing of events and tickets, visit DRIP’s website at http://ilovedrip.com/.
