singles food events?

I am very fed up with the online dating scene and am thinking it would be fun to go to some cooking classes that are specifically for singles - or chefs tasting events for singles etc

any suggestions along those lines?

  1. if you are anywhere near the UWS, i recommend dining at Bello Giardino on 71st and Columbus. i realize you aren't asking for restaurant recommendations, but the bar seating at Bello is very conducive to meeting people. it's a small bar of maybe 6-7 seats, but it's always full with kind neighborhood folk. the two girls behind the bar, Megan and Erin (I think), are both absolute darlings.

    1. It might not be specifically for singles, but I get the sense that many attendees are single:

            Their server must be down. I just googled them, and it looks like their twitter is still up and running...
