September 13, 2012 | WingWomen and Friends at blu

The crack team behind Hire a Boston WingWoman helps local guys break the ice and navigate the murky waters of the singles' scene. As the name suggests, you ordinarily have to hire one of them to tap their expertise — but at this Thursday’s WingWomen and Friends event, they’re giving away free samples. From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., the WingWomen will dole out dating tips at blu at the Sports Club/LA (4 Avery Street, Boston, 617.375.8550). Also expect bites from blu, date-worthy wines from the Urban Grape, fashion guidance from men's stylist Emmi Sorokin, and fitness tricks from a Sports Club/LA trainer. Sounds like a fun crash course for Casanovas — not that you, ahem, need any help in that department. Guys can RSVP for the free event here.
