Playdates for adults

Bill Thompson has a unique pick-up line, "Want to play a game of Hungry Hippos?"

The Iraq War veteran is a regular at PlayDate.

It's a monthly singles event that features grownups playing kids' games.

Connect Four is big at PlayDate.

And Twister is a sure-fire ice breaker.

Rudy Jamison is one of the organizers of PlayDate in Jacksonville, Fla.

He says all the games are old school, the lights don't get too dim, and the music doesn't get too loud.

He tells The Florida Times-Union PlayDate is designed to be an alternative to nightclubs and it seems to be working.
