The key to impressing that special someone lies not in etiquette, fancy clothes, physical fitness, intelligent conversation, Hummerzines, intimate knowledge of the kama sutra, or an assistant calendar editors position at New Times.

Learn to make those overpriced rainbow rolls yourself at the Art of Sushi-Making for Beginners, a special class sponsored by Miami Dade College and held at Gables sushi mecca Red Koi Thai and Sushi Lounge. Arrive with your kimono on and ten bucks in hand by 6:30 p.m. for the reception; the raw fish dojo begins at 7. Everyone is welcome, but if youre an MDC alum, youll get a special discount on appetizers and drinks while you fumble with the seaweed.
