How to get a cupcake for going on a Tinder date

Written by

Guys, you have a new Tinder pickup line.

Girls, prepare for spam.

In a possible nod to the "Tinder Games" one Chicago woman played, convincing lonely dudes to order her delivery pizza and sushi, Logan Square watering hole Parts and Labor is hosting Tinder Tuesdays. Fear not weary daters, this delivery will not be a catfish dinner (bad pun intended), nor will you need to invite an all-too-whimsical Tinder date home.

This delivery will consist solely of free cupcakes and occur in the safe confines of Parts and Labor.

The goods come from Flirty Cupcakes, best known for their mobile dessert van. The cupcake purveyors also have a dessert garage in Little Italy and a cute bakery in Lincoln Square as well.

Get the free sweets by showing your match to your server or bartender, who likely knows you're on a Tinder date anyway.

We're not sure if this will make your Tinder experience more or less awkward, but it sure could get a date to stop talking about what they're doing with their life.

This is probably the only time you'll be able to order a cupcake at last call, so dig in. You first.
