Best of Boston

2000 Best Singles Scene, Straight

MFA Friday evenings, 5:30p.m.-9:30p.m.

This event has understandably garnered plenty of press—it’s the perfect combination of art, music, wine, and singles ranging in age from 20 to 50. While some patrons can’t tell the difference between a deKooning and a Degas, the crowd is friendly and warm. Favorite line heard here: “Normally, I only approach women who look approachable and are smiling. You fit neither criteria, but I just had to talk to you.”
