First, a lot of people were "into" the "Just My Type" event. A couple of you brought up that women wouldn't want to give out their mobile numbers to strangers. Jay Lawrence from Newcap comes to the rescue:
It was a place in Edmonton. They contracted with some cell company. As you entered the club for the event, you registered your cell with the server. It gave you a temporary "shortcode", so no one's real number was shared. Then you got a big ol nametag with your code on it, and nothing else.
So, you see a cutie across the room, number 23245, you just text 23245 and strike up a conversation.
The twist...... every message sent in the room flashed on the big screen as well.

The "Loser Line" was always good for some fun/stupid audio on Monday mornings. I think the first time I heard it was with Dave Morale's giving numbers to girls from SFO on Spring Break in Palm Springs so they could shed the creepy dudes trolling the clubs and pools.
Loser Line seems to have faded into Cliche'-dom in the past eight or nine years.
Same concept, really. You have a station cell phone that is dedicated just for this. Female listeners (and maybe men too) at your club events can get the number from the talent or promo person. Then, when Creepy Lounge Lizard hits on her, or, she's had a great night but doesn't want it to go beyond that, she gives him her number to text.
You"d obviously want a vm message on it, but expect that most communications will be in word form. Then post 'em. Like textsfromlastnight.com but local dudes trying to get lucky.
