Single female. Los Angeles. How do I do this?

How and where does a chick in her late twenties meet guys in Los Angeles? I'm single for the first time in eons, and I'm just starting to come out of my shy shell, too. I'm looking forward to the casual dating scene, except I'm clueless as to where to go (and what to do)! I *don't* want to try anything internet-related (not even meetups) this time. The internet's always been a crutch for me, and I want to overcome that. I will sometimes be with other friends, but sometimes I'm going to be on my own. Which I'm excited about! ...but a total n00b. Help me figure out where to go and how to attract some attention without desperately clinging to a friend's arm. [more inside]

I'm in it for the long haul this time around.

A few years ago, I read about a dating service in NYC where potential mates got together for some sort of dinner or dinner party. At the time, there was a high ratio of women to men, because men who were looking for "the quick score" weren't interested in the service. Does anybody know the name of this service?
