In the 1972 comedy Play It Again, Sam, Allan (Woody Allen) is in a museum trying to pick up a woman (Diana Davila). “What are you doing Saturday night?” he asks her. “Committing suicide,” she replies, to which Allan responds, “What about Friday night?” On Wednesday, November 16, it might not be so dire as a group of singles mingle for an evening of free art, conversation, music, and drinks and snacks. “The Art of the Date: A Gallery Walk on the Lower East Side” will take participants (free with advance RSVP) from the Lower East Side Visitors Center on Orchard St. to four nearby galleries: Lesley Heller Workspace, which currently has a solo show by Tom Kotik and a group show called “Headcase”; Lost Weekend NYC, which is displaying 1980s photographs by celebrity snapper Patrick McMullan; Dino Eli Gallery, which is showing “Artists on the Prowl: The Hunter, the Wanderer, the Trash Collector & the Street Master”: and Stephan Stoyanov Gallery, which is featuring “Transformation and Perception: Paintings by Jill Weber.” In addition to the art, there will be free food from Bruschetteria, PopChips, and Lucky Penny Bake Shop, free drinks courtesy of Beck’s, and music by DJ Michael Little.
