Five Missed Connections at Denver Restaurants and Bars

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.

Gaslamp - m4w (Gaslamp Bar Denver ): "I don't ever do this, but would be kicking myself if I didn't try....I kept making eye contact with you, but didn't get the chance to introduce myself. You had on a black headband and dark top. By far the prettiest girl in the bar ;) Shoot me a message"

eltapatio.jpgTHOUGHT THERE WAS A MUTUAL ATTRACTION
El Tapatio Bus Boy - m4m (Golden): "Was eating there last night with my sister and niece. Thought there was a mutual attraction! Let me know if you would like to get coffee or dinner or something, hope you see this! -Dylan"

NM Girl and two Friends Sat. Night - m4w (The Tavern Downtown Denver): "I am looking to connect with the NM girl and her two friends from last saturday night at The Tavern, in downtown Denver. I was the tall guy you danced with wearing the Green Bay Packers shirt."

samuel-adams.jpgTHANKS FOR THE HUG
You drank bud light; I drank Sam Adams - w4m (Lakewood): "This is so silly. I said serendipity in the parking lot. I knew the rhyme about your name and why your mom named your dog the way she did. And she picked well. I know you'll probably never see this, but if you do, know that meeting you tonight was a really good thing after a string of not so good things. I'm so thankful I sat next to you. That you asked all the questions you did. Sometimes something as simple as picking the right seat at the bar can change the trajectory of your life. Sorry for the cheap shots; just be glad there was no karate chopping. Thanks for being a gentleman, and for the hug. You have no idea how much I needed it, and there was no one else around to give it tonight."

pappadeaux.jpgI COULD NOT TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU
Pappadeaux.. Rochelle - m4w (southeast denver): "I came in for brunch with my folks and brother Sunday. You were our server. I could not take my eyes off you. Beautiful!! I was wearing a black/white/grey long sleeve collared shirt. I would love to get to know you. Don't know if anyone reads this stuff.. Worth a shot! :)"
