This edition features employees who caught the eye of their customers.

Although the dining rooms of the city are filled with many happy couples, they are also inhabited by lovesick diners looking to catch the eye of that special someone. Sometimes, these people take to Craigslist to try and find that guy or girl who they saw from across the dining room, but weren't able to muster the courage to say something to. Here now are a few restaurant missed connections—perhaps love will also be on the menu for these romantic Denverites sometime soon.

I'M SURE YOU BOTH HAVE BOYFRIENDS
Olive & Finch Girls - m4w - 30 (Uptown): "I've noticed two of you working there, tall, brunettes with ponytails. Usually one working in front at the register and the other in the kitchen with a bandanna. You're gorgeous and I should make a point to say hello and introduce myself next time I'm in. But regardless, you're both Sweet and friendly and I'm sure you both have boyfriends... But hey, you look great and you make my day."

PLAYING CORN HOLE
View house Sunday night downtown - w4m
: "So you were working by the back employee entrance my friend and I were playing corn hole for a while and talking to you. You have dark brown hair and are real attractive. Let me know what I was wearing and who I was playing corn hole with ;-)"

ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR ASSES I'VE EVER SEEN
Redhead at Voodoo - m4w - 30 (Denver): "I saw you behind the counter at Voodoo a few weeks ago. You looked my way, I didn't wave or say hi, just smiled. But you are breathtaking. You have red hair and plugs and one of the most spectacular asses I've ever seen. I wish I had said hello, anything...I just left. But I can't get you out of my head, and now its late and I have to hope you see this, just for the sake of knowing how crazy beautiful you are."

HAHA, COFFEE PUN
you made me hot chocolate on monday - m4m - 20 (highlands cork)
: "hey there! i know this is a shot in the dark (haha, coffee pun), and if you don't see this, i'll definitely be stopping by to see you in person...i came to the coffee shop where you work with one of my friends monday afternoon and we ordered drinks. i told you a wild story about the coffee shop where i work, not because i thought you would think it was interesting, but just because i wanted an excuse to talk to you some more. you're really handsome, and i'd like to see you sometime! i was going to be brave and drop off my number as i left, but you disappeared behind the counter and never came back. if you see this let me know. maybe you remember me? i thought i caught you staring at me."

KINDA SHY SO I DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING
Anthony's pizza - w4m (16th street): "You were working there this evening and I thought you were really cute but I am kinda shy so I didn't say anything. I was there with the little girl I nanny for. If by some miracle you see this and are single, reply with what we talked about at the bar so that I don't get spammed. :)"
