"Matrimonial Banquet"

"So here's the thing about speed dating for Muslims. Many American Muslims - or at least those bent on maintaining certain conservative traditions - equate anything labeled "dating" with hellfire, no matter how short a time is involved. Hence the wildly popular speed dating sessions, at which single people are encouraged to meet a large number of prospective partners in a short time, at the largest annual Muslim conference in North America were labeled with an entirely more respectable sobriquet. They were called the "Matrimonial Banquet."" By Neil MacFarquhar, N.Y. Times, International Herald Tribune  Link to Article (last visited 9-19-06 NVS)
