Milwaukee Public Market, Grouplove, and “eating cake upstairs with a chump”
Each week, we pick four thematically linked Missed Connections from the weekend to compete in a battle of opinion. First prize is a date with the missed connection. Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you’re fired. (We have no power to actually award any of these prizes. Leave your ranking in the comments.)
Along with booze and a lack of shame, food and music are two of the key ingredients in finding true love. After all, is there a better way to sniff out a prospective mate than by surreptitiously eyeing up what he/she is eating or listening to? And so we find our theme for this week’s salacious Always Be (Missing) Connections, which takes place at the Milwaukee Public Market and Sunday’s Grouplove show at The Rave.
Public Market - m4w - 24 (MPM)
We passed each other at the entrance to the public market on Sunday morning. You were wearing a blue t-shirt and a septum ring and I was just plain high, or I would have offered more than a smile and a hello. If you see this, contact me. If you don't see this, please go on with your life as if you never saw this.
Well endowed at Public Market - m4w - 35 (Dining area upstairs)
I noticed you eating cake upstairs with a chump. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of you. I wished I was your cake and that you were eating me if you know what I mean. That chump doesn’t deserve you, the way he was eating cake it is no wonder his BMI was greater than 40. When you reply (and I know you will) let me know what type of cake you were eating to weed out the fakers.
Foxy tall girl at Grouplove show - m4w - 31 (THE RAVE)
I don’t know if you noticed me checking you out but I didn’t want to creep you out with a “stare”...but you’re so beautiful! Probably a little young too, but whatever, I think you’re really cute. I can’t believe I’m posting a missed connection. I was maybe the tallest guy there, I’m not really sure. You should message me, because not only are you pretty but you’ve got great taste in music! I should’ve just had the balls to talk to you but my brain was going blank. It happens.
102.1 concert at the Rave - m4mw - 19 (the Rave)
So this is a little complicated... 2 different people, 2 different situations. The first one is this simple. You work at 102.1, and my mom actually spoke to you the day before the concert, you gave her 2 tickets for me and a friend, and you informed her to have me find you at the concert. I couldn’t find you however, and I know you check these so this is how I’m finding you. One problem, my speakers in my car are blown so I can’t listen to the show. If you see this and still want to meet me, respond to this and I hope to see you around.
The second is a bit more of a long shot. You were working at the Rave, selling t-shirt’s and stuff for Grouplove. Your name is Rachel, I bought 2 things and then asked if you wouldn’t mind holding onto them until the end of the show. And you did. I introduced myself to you and I was gonna give you my number but you were super busy. Regretting that now. If you here about this by some luck from whatever power may help, please reply with what I bought, and my name. I would like to talk to you.
