Bar: T45 Midtown (in the Hyatt Hotel in Times Square)
Age: 33
Originally from: The Bronx
Lives in: The Bronx
Interested in: Women
Hobbies: Writing, recording and performing songs, playing soccer, cooking
Drink I’d make to impress a date: A classic called the Queen’s Park Swizzle — essentially close to a mojito
Worst pickup line I’ve heard at the bar: Two women looked me up and down, and one said to the other, “Hey! Look at the tits on that guy!” I followed up with, “Ma’am, they’re called pecs.” She then said, “How rude of me, let me take you to dinner!”

Jeremy Strawn

GONY_Bo's_0206

Bar: Bo’s Kitchen & Bar Room
Age: 33
Originally from: Lubbock, Texas
Lives in: Williamsburg
Interested in: Women
Hobbies: Tennis, golf, learning about astronomy
Drink I’d make to impress a date: People drink what they drink — I am more curious what she would order. If she orders a vodka soda, that is pretty blah. If she orders a gin neat, she might be for me. If they have good taste and like gin or rye then I would be happy to make them a cocktail — probably either a Final Ward or Last Word.
Worst pickup line I’ve heard at the bar: It was used by me drunkenly one night: “Hey, hey, you — stay there ’cause I am gonna hit on you later.”

Drink I’d make to impress a date: Dirty Martini. I love a strong, classic drink!
Worst pickup line I’ve heard at the bar: “I’m sure you’ve been asked this a million times tonight…” Men often try to start a conversation with me this way. If you are going to hit on me, be confident about it!
