What happens if two black holes come close enough so that their event horizons touch?

Then their even horizons touch. Whether or not they pull each other together will depend on the physics of their closure. Because black holes have such massive gravitation, they'd have to be moving pretty quickly "across" each other's path to avoid a situation where they were mutually trapped in enough of a gravitational well to prevent them from separating.
