Where to pick up hot guys in LA

It seems that if you want to pick up on hot men, you apparently need to check out the WGA strikes -- those men in red t-shirts are sizzling. Radar has the exclusive scoop:

The scheme, according to a striking Fox scribe, goes something like this: "The first step in the 'picket pickup' is picking who you want to picket behind. You don't even have to worry about looking like a stalker, because you're supposed to stand close to people and follow them around. The flirting is easy, since you have a built-in pickup line: 'What did you used to do?' You angle your sign in a way that lets your target know you're interested, and then smile a lot. They get the hint. Soon it's time to go to lunch, and from that point the sky's the limit!" [Radar]

And here, in order, are the best places to go:

  • "'CBS is totally the place to be, the guys are GORGEOUS'"
  • "'Sony is a close second.'"
  • "Fox, however, is 'just kind of gross—everyone is old.'"
