In our series How Did You Meet?, local couples tell us how they first hooked up.
This Hollywood producer and private trainer’s love story has all the makings of a rom-com plot. Katie and Dave, who is a producer on Amazon’s Inside Joke with Asif Ali, met at the Dime on Fairfax, where he fell in love at first sight. “When I saw her at the bar, I told my friend that’s my future wife,” Dave says.
“He said I’ve seen a few guys come up to you and no one lasts more than seven seconds,” recalls Katie, a personal trainer at the helm of katieFIT. “I told him then he had seven seconds.”
He ended up getting 13 years. The married couple still pays homage to the place they meet over a decade ago. “We go back to the Dime,” says Katie. “We have a cocktail every year on their on the day we met.”
