Darren Criss (Blaine) is one of the many Glee star who walked the red carpet for the 2013 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards this Sunday... but he didn’t attend the event solo! On January 27, Darren tweeted about taking a “hot date” with him to the show.

Don’t get your hopes up too much, though! While Darren’s date most definitely is hot — dare we say it, supermegafoxyawesomehot — he’s also a totally platonic friend.

As his plus-one to the event, Darren brought his close friend and college pal, Joey Richter, who appeared in last week’s Glee episode as one of the NYADA glee club members.

Alright, so now that @JoeyRichter is a big star on Glee, I decided he was cool enough to be my hot date to the @sagawards” Darren wrote.

The boys seemed to have a blast at the event, even posing for a photo with Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his fiance, Justin Mikita. We’re very impressed by the amount of expressive eyebrows in the photo — and perhaps even more impressed by all the different types of bow-ties.

It’s sounds like the evening was, to use another StarKid phrase (because really, why not?).... TOTALLY AWESOME.
