Meet the 2013 Tallahassee Top Singles

One of the things that struck us about this year’s group of 16 Top Singles was the mash-up of personality types. It was like watching a cast of video game characters: the debonair Hero, the crusading Warrior, the devastatingly beautiful Fembot … and so on. 

Starting at 7 p.m. on Sat., July 20 at Hotel Duval, our “characters” will be auctioned off in what has become one of the sexiest summer events in town. Food, drinks, music and more are the backdrop for this fun-loving event, now in its fourth year. And you have the chance to score a lunch date with one of our Top Singles for the beginning of what may be the ultimate love connection.
