There are just some dishes so good you can't live without them, and there are others that you skeet shoot off the roof because your babysitter's dead and shotguns are awesome. For a new site that'll turn those life-altering dishes into date opportunities
with 1991 Christina Applegate, check out Spoondate, launching Wednesday.
Started by a Paris-born, Ivory Coast-raised former Wall Street-er with a predictably borrrring accent, Spoondate is a super-simple SF-based casual dating service entirely based on food cravings, giving you access to other aesthetically pleasing 7X7ers and a means to satiate your hunger pangs and if all goes well, each other, all because "you're way too awesome to eat alone". Signing up is embarrassingly simple thanks to Facebook Connect, and using it is even simpler: you'll type in a must-have (Bloomin' Onion at Outback Steakhouse!!), sift through others' desirables (No Rules Parmesan Pasta!!!!), and then show your interest by clicking "Yum!", leaving a comment (umm... "Yum?"), or clicking "Join Me", which'll shoot them an email saying you're down to grab a bite with them, that is, until you realize who's actually behind that AnnouncerMarv67 screen name. Better still, you can pre-stack the deck on your date with custom filters like age range, relationships status, political views, ethnicity, and "interested in" (food/friendship/dating), or even sort by food personality, which includes stuff like Carnivore, Pescatarian, Sweet-toothed, and "I Eat Everything", which Bartolo Colon's profile auto-checks.
And in case you're not into the whole semi-blind food-venture thing, they've also got group outings that'll include hands-on stuff like food trivia, pastry plating at your table, and chef's classes, which'll no doubt require that you stay and cook until all of the main dishes are done, man.
