Getting social at Drift
Sadly, we have discovered that "Whaddaya know -- I like beer, too!" is no measure of compatibility. Into the singles' swamp comes Done in a Night Dating, an organization that hosts "single mingle" parties for men and women ages 25 to 40 who share common interests. Sometimes parties feature wine tasting, sometimes a fitness focus. This Wednesday, October 22, Done in a Night presents a "Work/Life Balance" party at Drift in downtown Scottsdale, where guest speaker Louis Sutterer, a businessman and Ironman Triathlete, talks about personal and professional success. Julie Gerke, owner and cofounder of Done, reveals the best part of her meet and greet service: "Other than registering for the party, there's no online profile to fill out, or read over, or lie to" -- definitely a happy alternative to our usual "done in a night" method. The party costs $35. Find Drift at 4341 North 75th Street in Scottsdale. To register, see www.doneinanightdating.com. - Kim Toms
Everybody Must Get Boned
A joint exhibit in Tempe
Sick of superficial art? This'll get under your skin: A new exhibition at Tempe's reZurrection Gallery cuts deep -- all the way to the bone.

Hanging through November 5, the multimedia exhibition includes works by Sam Esmoer, Mike Goodwin, Walter Hoel, James B. Hunt, Damian Johnson, Don Kauss, Ali Kauss, Justine Mantor, Ruth Todd and others.
Look death in the face from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 5 Sunday. The gallery is located at 601 West University; call 480-377-9080 or see www.rezurrection gallery.net for more information. - Jill Koch
