Red, White, and Screw

Ladies + wine = lots of sex talk.

BFF talk has taken a trashy turn over the past six weeks at Gusto!'s Girls' Night of Wine Flights. Blame the vino: It's prompting a lot of gals to let their hair down . . . and let their jaws flap. "Girls are getting together, just like guys do," says owner Bill Salerno. "They say, 'When's the last time you gave a blowjob to a guy?' One server was embarrassed every time she went by the table. All they were talking about was that kind of stuff."While ladies compare bed-hopping notes, they can sample a selection of the restaurant's wines. The reds range from Chianti to barbaresco; the whites include chardonnay, Riesling, and pinot grigio. There are also appetizers — like prosciutto-wrapped cantaloupe, mozzarella-topped Italian bread, and smoked salmon drizzled with lemon juice. It's a menu aimed at pleasing a woman's palate. Salerno just wishes he started the weekly outing sooner. "Better late than never," he says. Wine is served from 5 to 10 p.m. at Gusto!, 12022 Mayfield Road. Admission is $20.
