Fact: The fastest way to a man’s – or woman’s, for that matter – heart is through the stomach. Fiction: Said culinary courting is one-sided. Meet your possible future mate while putting together a sassy dish tonight at Chicago: Gourmet Dating at the Calphalon Center, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Make reservations if you’ve got $75 and just enough longing for a boy/girlfriend burning a hole in your pocket.
