First, a huge thank you from everyone at Metro to those who participated in today’s first-ever (first annual?) Speed Dating on the Red Line event!
Above are some of the photos I grabbed while riding back and forth between DTLA and NoHo. Hope you enjoy. Click on a photo to see a larger version. Thanks go to Mark Clifford for the color photos. And thanks to Rich Morallo of Metro for the video that is below.
There was a lot of media on hand; I’ll add links to the videos and stories as they go online.
To those who speedily dated today, how was the event? Meet anyone interesting? Meet anyone not so interesting? Feedback please, people!
