Like-minded city singles are looking to tonight’s Barack Obama rally as more than just a politically charged soiree: It’ll be a raging pickup scene.
The rally from 5-8 p.m. in Washington Square Park, promises to draw a young, intelligent crowd. And what better time to hook up than a beautiful fall evening while waving a banner for democracy?
“You are likely to have similar political views, and those often cross into other things that aren’t politically affiliated,” says Colleen Kluttz, a 29-year-old TV producer who’s hitting the event tonight if work allows. “It will give you something to talk about. It gives you a reason to have conversations that aren’t just about yourself.” But what kind of guy are you going to find at an Obama rally?
“A socially conscious liberal – probably a well-dressed, well-groomed hipster,” Kluttz says.
Or some socialist buffoon who needs to be reminded to breathe on occasion. Good luck!
