Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Here's a unique kind of single's event -- not to meet the man or woman of your dreams, but to meet the person you want to split rent with. A company called Meet. Mingle. Move. is holding a roommate mixer on Wednesday, June 13 at 1600 Vine.

The event is fairly straightforward. You meet a bunch of people, and if you hit it off with them, you can move in together. It actually seems nice and refreshing because it's so low-key; there is no pressure to, say, put a ring on it within two months.

Also, tickets are $10, so you know the people you're meeting have at least a little bit of disposable income.

UPDATE JUNE 13: We've learned that due to a venue conflict, the event has been rescheduled for Wednesday, June 27.
