Tips on how to pick up a sailor (or a Marine) during New York’s Fleet Week

I found this article weird.



I found this article weird. The author fusses about where to go and what to wear, but at the end, she confesses that, really, “all you need is a pair of boobs and to walk up and say ‘Hi.’” Surprised to see the New York Daily News run this kinda stuff. That said, I read the whole article, so who’s fooling who?

Another hot tip: Lady, don’t threaten to blow up a Navy ship.
