Sure, truly in-the-know East Bay singles realize that Grocery Outlet is the place to troll for a mate. But it ain’t open until 2 a.m., and there’s no bartender either — although the liquor selection certainly isn’t bad. Therefore, many people with jobs favor the Ruby Room for their one-nighters. It seems to be the destination for the recently dumped; people who need a shoulder to cry on or a leg to hump. Set yourself at the end of the long bar and survey the land, maintaining eye contact with that cute guy in the Manowar T-shirt. It’s a bit dark, but that just makes it easier to “accidentally” bump into someone. Add some strong drinks at decent prices, and you’ve got a recipe for love.
