This is certainly a first – one hopeless romantic out there decided to use Bowery Boogie as the proverbial missed connections switchboard. And who were we to decline? Herewith, the desperate plea from this reader to find that “minx wearing green shorts and a white shirt” running on the Williamsburg Bridge yesterday:

Hello there! Long time listener, first time caller.

So basically at ~6:30pm today [Thursday] I was running on the Williamsburg Bridge and exchanged the most delightful of smiles with a minx wearing green shorts and a white shirt as we passed each other. A few minutes later I turned around to chase after her, but alas I am no Steve Prefontaine and she got away. I figured I’d try my luck and see if you’d post something about this delusional romantic (me) here. I feel like she’ll either see it and maybe call, or she doesn’t follow Bowery Boogie and then I wouldn’t want to be with her anyway!


Forever weird,

By the way, the mustache in the photo isn’t real.
