With Valentine'scoming up, we're getting all sorts of preposterous pitches for sensuous menus of aphrodisiacs and the like (chefs, why not just prepare recipes from the new semen cookbook?), but the silliest Valentine's pitch so far comes from the good folks at SushiSamba.
Beginning Sunday, February 1st, NYC singles who register for the [Sushi and Sake 101 class] can log on to sushisamba.com and fill out an official match-making questionnaire. Based on questionnaire responses, and with the help of the little love god himself, SUSHISAMBA will identify two to three prospective ‘pairs’. Registered guests will be notified of their matches name by email. Then, at the February 10th event – singles will have the chance to mingle with their ‘matches’ (identified by nametag.)
A better approach than simply dining alone and slurring a come-on at the bartender after the third martini? Maybe.
