“Dear PoPville,

On January 28, I was on 18 St. with a girlfriend about to walk into Roofer’s Union when I locked eyes with a guy dressed as a founding father. I assume they were apart of some bar crawl, but they looked ready to fight in the American Revolution. His friends seemed to pick up on our connection and were encouraging him in my direction. I walked into Roofers thinking they were coming in as well, but alas, the brigade marched on. If you’re out there Paul Revere, I’d love to grab a drink.”


(Monday) I was sitting outside at Tryst when I saw two people who seemed to be old friends run into each other. One of them, a man about 30 years old (with three cats) with brown hair, sounded soo enthusiastic about leaving his desk job and trying something new. I didn’t eavesdrop quite enough to hear what this change was, but as someone feeling jaded about my own desk job, I want to hear about this guy’s journey! His enthusiasm was so palpable and I want to hear more!”

Ed. Note: If either of these are you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP. PoPville is not affiliated with either party, please proceed with any potential connection at your own risk using caution as you would any online encounter. For those curious about past missed connections, many have been made and when possible I’ll try to update when/if more are made.
