Unmarried men probably think all the ladies who aren't spoken for are empty-headed gold-diggers. And the single women out there may be operating under the notion that unattached men are eternally flawed man-children. Fortunately, both assessments are far too harsh and pessimistic. Nice gals and guys are everywhere — if you just know where to look. It seems like the pre-Valentine's Day Crush
party at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard) might be a good place to start. At this event you know that all attendees are charitable — tickets, priced at $50 to $150, benefit the museum's programs, as do the sales of artwork at the silent auction. Plus, you'll be able to observe your love interest's moves on the dance floor and get a feel for his or her manners (i.e. chewing habits) as your crush munches away on the hors d'oeuvres. The lovefest runs from 7 to 11 p.m.; tickets can be purchased by visiting www.contemporarystl.org
or calling 314-535-8903.
