  • Seeing-eye single at the TedFinding a mate with similar interests can be crucial to any budding relationship. But if you like baseball, Singles Night at Turner Field could just be the ticket to romance.

Guys and gals on the prowl will have the Golden Moon Casino Pavilion section of the stadium all to themselves, where a pre-game party will give them time to get to know each other before the on-field action becomes a distraction. A DJ will spin on the Top of the Chop patio, where each ticket holder will be allowed to redeem two free drink tickets included with the price of admission. There will also be prizes and other festivities intended to break the ice and bring people together.

For those who are lucky enough to hit it off with someone before the game, there will be at least nine innings to get to know each other even better as the Braves take on the Colorado Rockies. But even if you don't make a love connection, you can at least get some satisfaction in the fact that tickets to this section are normally $28 and do not include drink tickets or other festivities. So even if you go home single, you not only saved $3 but you also got your buzz on in the process.

Metromix Singles' Night. Thurs., May 21. Pre-game party begins at 5 p.m.; game begins at 7 p.m. $25. Turner Field, 755 Hank Aaron Drive. 404-577-9100. www.braves.com/singles.

Atlanta Rollergirls Spirit Night Want to know how to impress a rollergirl? Buying her a beer is usually a good start. But when you're buying said beer (or any other food or beverage item) on the Brewhouse's monthly Spirit Night, she'll be even more impressed since a percentage of that sale goes directly to the Atlanta Rollergirls. You can also watch some of the season's earlier bouts on the big screens all night.

Thurs., May 21. 5p.m.- 11 p.m. Free. Brewhouse Cafe, 401 Moreland Ave. 404-525-7799. www.atlantarollergirls.com.
