Contrary Meets Shrewd

East Villagers are quite contrary; they're also very shrewd. And when they see a chance to turn contrariness into dollars, they jump on it!

Ciao For Now is a small restaurant on East 12th Street. It's not the kind of place you would go to on Valentine's Day, though. And since Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday this year, a lot of people who might otherwise have gone there to eat will go somewhere else, leaving them with little cash on such an important night.

Here is where the shrewdness comes in: they are hosting an Anti-Valentine's Day party!

Who do you think will go to this? A bunch of guys looking to score. They know that any woman there that night is available.

But the women are wise to this. They know that any guy who's there also doesn't have a date, and they're not going to make themselves available to some guy that no other woman would go out with!

The room will be split into two groups: the guys who haven't figured out yet that no girls are coming; and the vampires of the East Village, who feed off of unhappiness.

I'm tempted to swing by there and get a picture of the sad event, but I can't. I have a date!
