Is that a Wang in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Commenting on the situation at hand is always good for starting conversations. Shared anxieties, like asking someone "I've never done this meetup kind of thing before, are you new too?" or telling them that you're a little nervous but the other person looks like they're a fun person works. I wouldn't use any sort of canned opening line or something, just go off what you have at the moment. The best conversations are when you start with something for a person to hook on to. The wide open "how are you" or "what do you do" are both so boring so as to translate that boringness to you. Asking someone if they've seen the new art exhibit at the local museum is nice, and if they say no, you can say something like "neither have I, you look like someone who has a lot of savoir faire though" and just lead into a conversation about art or fine things. When in absolutely dire straits, talk about travel with people. Everyone loves to talk about traveling places or their dream vacation!

This is precisely what I meant to suggest.

Just take your dick out of your pants and ask if anyone wants to hook on to it.

This is SF, comment on an article of clothing you like (or don't). Then tell her it makes her look sexy.

I never go to these planned things, the good looking chicks will have people flocking to them on their own.

What I do is wear something out of place and have people comment on it.

"Why are you wearing ski goggles in a bar?"
"I want them to protect my beer goggles..." *rimshot*

She suggested having a quiz competition as an ice-breaker but I have my doubts about that working.

So, any ideas?
