There is a definite chill in the air today and summer is flickering to a close. I've always found autumn to be electrifying. Everyone's sense of romance is at a ten and as we add on layers of clothing, we are trying to spy a hibernation partner.
Since you'll be stuck inside with just them for a number of very cold months, you'll probably want them to be mildly interesting...probably...maybe. What better place to find that than at a cultural event or, as Stephen Markley described this week's Sexy Rx, a out-and-out "meat market" guised as a cultural event.
Your Sexy Rx:
The Spot: First Fridays at the Museum of Contemporary Art. This month's theme is "The September Issue," which, as we all know, is the biggest. ;) It's tonight. Either buy your tickets online at a discount before 3 p.m. or buy them at the door.
Pick-up Line That Just Might Work: Jump behind the fashion karaoke photobooth, point at your target and laughingly say, "this one is for you," before launching into full Blue Steel. This move could almost come with a guarantee. It's goofy and breaks the ice in a fun way.
Who You'll See: The young, fashionable and, best of all, SINGLE and LOOKING!
Romance Factor: 4/5...meat market...I guess, this is less "romance" and more holy smokin' hook-up factor.
Couple Factor: 1/5...maybe check out one of the MCA's Jazz on the Terrance nights instead.
Cinch The Deal: You're close to everything. If you've been hitting it off with someone, ask if they want to get a drink at the new Henri or head over to the gallery district in River North to do some window shopping.
Don't forget to tune into WGN-AM 720 tomorrow morning (Saturday, Sept. 4) at 10 am to hear me dishing on boys and breaking up.
