Columnist Ruby Capote finally took some initiative with her life when she sent her resume and a six-pack of beer to the editor of a New York paper. Then she left her longtime, going-nowhere relationship and took the job offered to her by the seemingly charming Michael Hobbs. When she gets to the city, Ruby reinstitutes girls' poker night, a practice from her college days where she and her friends sometimes play for money and sometimes play for secrets and thoughts.
