PickMIDate: Find a Date & Support Local Business

Do you like game shows?
Do you like to support local businesses?
Do you like to play matchmaker?
And finally …
Do you like squirrels ?

I have no idea what that last one means, but if you simply answer any of the preceding questions with apparently any answer, then the folks at PickMIDate might something nice in store for you. PickMIDate aims not only to help Michigan singles hook up on dates, but also to help local businesses at the same time.

“Each week, the contestants who gain the most votes, will receive an all expense paid date at a locally owned restaurant, transportation included!

The audience members who cast their vote for the winning couple will also receive cool stuff.

Random prizes will also be given away… depending on our mood.”

One of the big trends recently has been highlighting local businesses with sites like LivingSocial and Groupon.  This takes that trend one step further by actually combining online dating with some local business love as well.  It seems like the local business community will love this as well, as they can have fun during the online game and get some terrific exposure online and as well.

It seems like a very fun and lighthearted concept aimed at getting fun local folks together and to help support the local Michigan businesses.  They are slated to go live very soon during the spring of 2010 but you can stop by and see em at TECH Cocktail Detroit.
