The Armory Art Fair is a hot bed of potential hook-ups. We've been scouring Craigslist “missed connection” ads all week and found a large number of posts by people wishing they'd exchanged emails (and fluids). Nothing says common interest like “Hey, we were looking at that Donkey together!”

Art Fag City wants readers to get laid, so we’ve compiled a few listings. The screen shots start with romantic spottings at The Armory Show and end at the after-parties. Never say we don’t have readers’ best interests at heart.

    The flogging molly and millennium falcon tattoo in that last one seem remarkably not art world-y to me. Maybe it was Cory Arcangel doing it ironically.

      The Armory has over 50,000 visitors per year, right? I can’t believe that all of those people listen to Ariel Pink.

          Do you like Flogging Molly because you’re in the art world?
