Dissatisfied both with writing a "Single Girl on the Edge" lifestyle column and with her boyfriend (who has a name for his car and compulsively collects plastic bread ties), Ruby Capote sends her best columns and a six-pack of beer to the editor of The New York News and lands herself a new job in a new city. In New York, Ruby undertakes the venerable tradition of Poker Night - a way (as men have always known) to eat, drink, smoke, analyse, interrupt one another, share stories, and, most of all, raise the stakes. There's Skorka, model by profession, homewrecker by vocation; Jenn, willing to travel as far as it takes for true love; Danielle, recently divorced, seducer of at least one father/son combo in her quest to make up for perceived 'missed opportunities.' When Ruby falls for her editor, Michael, all bets are off. He's a challenge - and something of an enigma. But is he merely interested in making Ruby a better writer - or a better prospective girlfriend?
