Raise Your Dating Steaks ... Uh, Stakes

Might as well lay it all on the line tonight



    Raise Your Dating Steaks ... Uh, Stakes
    Well, it seems the matchmaking consultation worked pretty well for Mr. Suave here.

    The Washington Post's Going Out Gurus are hosting their monthly happy hour tonight from 6-8 p.m. on the rooftop of BLT Steak (1625 I St. N.W.). Drink specials include $4 Dos Equis bottles, $5 Bud and Bud Light bottles and $6 Absolut and Absolut Peach cocktails. The rooftop bar only accepts cash, so make sure to hit up an ATM on your way.

    Attendees will be entered in a contest to win prizes such as a $100 gift certificate to BLT Steak, another gift certificate to CommonWealth and a two-night stay at the Bellmoor Inn in Rehoboth. Everyone will also have the chance to talk with the editors of Date Lab and have a mini consultation with a matchmaker pro. (Funny, why does "matchmaker pro" sound like an Apple program?)

    And while you mix and mingle at the dating-centric soirée, don’t forget to grab a few bites of peppered beef filet, mini grilled cheeses and BLT's signature popovers off of the roaming hors d'oeuvres trays. After all, drinking on an empty stomach is never a good idea, especially when you're trying to score some digits. And in that case, try to keep your drunk texting to a minimum. Those suave lines just aren’t as convincing when they're misspelled.
