It's nice to know that Rihanna is rediscovering the fun of being 21 -- and uncoupled from Chris Brown. On Monday night, the chanteuse arrived at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge in New York City with a large group of pals and a potential new love interest.

According to the New York Post, Rihanna was less interested in knocking down pins and more interested in puckering up with Canadian actor-cum-rapper Aubrey "Drake" Graham, who played wheelchair-confined Jimmy on "Degrassi: The Next Generation."

"She was drinking whiskey and apple juice and making out with him all night," says an eyewitness. "They were really cute together."

People magazine adds that RiRi was "absolutely glowing" while "stealing kisses" from Drake throughout the evening.

"They were very cute," echoes another spy. "Both of them were in really good spirits [and] she was having a great time."

The mag says the pair exited together around midnight after dancing up a storm with their friends.

Drake is the latest guy Rihanna has been linked to since reportedly taking a breather from her relationship with Brown, who is still facing a pair of felony charges stemming from his alleged assault on her on Feb. 8.

Last month, the tabloids not only had her reuniting with a long-ago beau from Barbados but also going on a pair of dates with Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum.
