Top Ten Pickup Spots in Palm Beach County
The single life. It can be a tumultuous time, particularly when you're young. By design, it usually involves awkward "plenty of fish" conversations, uncomfortable first dates, barely satisfying one night stands, nacho cheese, and fake cell phone numbers written on napkins. All the while, you see pictures of your "happily married" friends busting out babies like nobody's business and building that new extension to their immaculate two-story dream house.
But let's be honest, there is still something so inherently thrilling about the chase, about the prospect of meeting one's soul mate, or at least finding a warm cozy body to snuggle with -- if just for one night. Some singles wouldn't trade it for the world, and some married folks look at their single friends, and the endless pictures of wild nights with busty blonds, with endless scorn.
So let's all relish in singlehood, and all the ups and downs that come along with the ride. For those still "living the life," County Grind has amassed a nice collection of the best places to play the game for a night. After the jump, read our list of the top ten pickup joints in Palm Beach County.
1. The Lake Worth Pier
This is a top locale to pick up that crusty surfer brah you've been dreaming of. Picture Keanu Reeves' character from Point Break, only much scruffier and with gnarlier facial hair. Those are the type of dudes you'll meet at this Lake Worth break. Come here during the middle of the week and in the morning to meet the crème of the crème. Don't expect dudebros with jobs here, just guys with toned bods and deep tans with saltwater aromas who are out for good times.
2. Blue Martini City Place and Town Center
This is where the magic happens at Blue Martini. Especially if you are looking for those sassy executive working gals or enterprising paralegals donning Jones New York. No matter how bad your game is, half-priced cucumber lemonades or creamsicle crush martinis go a long way in filling in your conversational gaps, making you seem that much more dashing. Make sure you brush up on your knowledge of investing, and if you don't have a portfolio, be ready to do some research and have some risky hedge funds and low risk investments on deck to talk about in between sips of fueled libations.
3. Rocco's Tacos (West Palm Beach and Boca Raton)
There is no better equalizer than shots of top shelf tequila and the blue agave drinks certainly flow like wine at these Palm Beach County party spots. At Rocco's you are sure to meet that party girl who's fresh out of college, drank a wee bit too much, and probably won't remember your name when she's politely kicking you out in the morning. But who cares right? You didn't come to Rocco's Tacos and take body shots to meet your soul mate, did you? Really?
