Courting Disaster

10 Guys You'll Meet at First Friday in Phoenix

Courting Disaster is Jackalope Ranch's weekly column of dating horror stories, observations, how-tos, and more by Katie Johnson. Names of ex-boyfriends, past hookups, and bad blind dates have been changed to protect the guilty.

There are many forms of art to experience on First Friday in downtown Phoenix: visual art, performing art, and the less talked about art of seduction.

Some singles may say they're just there for the art, but deep down they're looking for a little bit more. Whether you're in the galleries, on the street, at the bar, or waiting line at the food truck, you're bound to run into a least one of these types of guys on the first Friday of the month.
