Today, bars and clubs will be full of eager singles looking to hook up for the weekend or -- gasp! -- even longer. But if you're growing tired of asking for digits (or handing out fake ones) and you're horrible at speed-seduction, make reservations tonight for the Eight Friends Out's Progressive Dinner. It's a dining club for singles, where folks sit eight to a table and chat in a relaxed environment. Enjoying the company of a fellow diner? Get their number, or call up the EFO folks and ask for it later. Today, your evening starts at Hotel Icon's Whiskey Bar for cocktails, then moves to the Cava Bistro for appetizers and Mia Bella Trattoria for entrées and desserts. The membership fee will set you back more than a Benjamin, but compared to the usual amount you spend in a bar looking for Mr. or Ms. Right Now, that's nothin'. Cocktails start at 6:30 p.m. at 220 Main. For information, membership fees and to RSVP, call 281- 870-0827 or visit www.eightfriendsout.com. onetime membership fee of $149.95; and 3-course dinners for $48.
Get in on the action and don't miss out on all the great fun!
