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.
YOUR FRIEND WAS THROWING UP OR SOMETHING
Copper Rail, stood up. - m4w (Brighton): "I know this is a huge long shot, but here goes. I was leaving the copper rail Friday night, you were outside with your friend. She was throwing up or something. You asked if I was leaving already, I said yes I'd been stood up. You said you weren't standing me up you weren't tall enough. You said you were fun sized. I feel like such an idiot for not going back in to have a beer with you or at least getting your name. You were very cute. Well, if you see this we should get that beer."
I UNDRESSED YOU WITH MY EYES
Silver Fox at Strange Craft Beer - w4m - 32 (13th and Zuni): "To the striking man I saw last week at Strange, You are drop dead gorgeous. You were dressed in what I can only assume to be work clothes. I undressed you with my eyes. You were with a few friends having a good time so I did not want to interrupt. Maybe you will see this..."
TELL ME WHAT I WAS WEARING
taco tuesday - m4w (adelitas): "To the girl with short brownish hair and glasses we made eye contact a few times but I was with my sister so I could talk to you. Tell me what I was wearing."
Listen up Denver-help me find him! - w4m - 26 (Punch Bowl Social): "Looking for a guy I met at the punch bowl social on Wednesday night 2/4/15...He was there bowling with a bunch of friends and his step brother..He's 26 and has a masters in Psychology. Not originally from Denver but now lives there. Went on a ski/snowboard trip that weekend. First name Will. Help me find him. xo California"
I WAS THE ANTHONY BOURDAIN-ESQUE CHARACTER
Pho beauty - m4w (South Federal): "I was dining alone at one of the more recent fine pho/noodle establishments on Federal on Saturday evening, Feb 7, and couldn't help but notice you, a tall beautiful brunette, dining alone as well. I was the Anthony Bourdain-esque character (but nicer, and younger) sitting across the restaurant and wanted to say Hi but I also didn't want to interrupt your noodle enjoyment. You got a boba on the way out and I was wondering what flavor, imagining you happily slurping the tapioca pieces up the straw as your evening continued. I would enjoy chatting with you at least, and perhaps we could get some Asian noodle goodness together at some point..."
