Leslie Jones had an absolute blast at the Emmys and its legendary Governors Ball afterparty. And she may have found love along the way. The Saturday Night Live comedian tweeted a missed connection from the evening seeking a hot bartender from down south four days after the event.

Fans were supportive. Some even offered to set her up with another Bama boy or go on a date with her themselves.

The mysterious mixologist has yet to come forward. Was he shy? Or did he take his desires to the original web-based missed connection hub, Craigslist? I scoured the Los Angeles listings from Sunday night to the present day and found pretty much what you’d expect.

And yet still no Bama bartender. Almost a week has passed since the Emmys. C’mon, dude. To paraphrase the wisdom of one of Jones’s fans, Roll tide! Get that chick!
