As you can tell, I've been out of touch for a while. Let's just say that my life situation didn't exactly inspire me for ideas about how men could be more social, but I'm back and I stumbled upon a really great idea for my men on the prowl!
I was looking for innovative ways for men to meet women and I saw this article on Oregonlive.com. It talks about a new-ish concept in community building called food swapping. A food swap is an event where people bring their home made edibles to trade with neighbors.
Even better, when I looked for any applicability in the Boston area I found that a swap is starting here really soon! The first event is on June 25th in Davis Square. Check out the website at www.bostonfoodswap.com.
As great an opportunity as this is to meet women who love to cook, there is a catch! You do need to be able to bring some swappable creation to participate. If you are a homebrewer or have a killer BBQ sauce recipe, then you are home free. If if you don't really know your way around a kitchen or a homemade hobby, a contribution could be as simple as infusing a bit of vodka with something fun (think fruit, veggies, or spices - Google it for more info).
Catch aside, I can almost guarantee that there will be a lot of nice women there who are looking to get to know people and you and your guy friends can be perfectly positioned to meet them! RSVP NOW!
