An earlier discussion about this appears here. (Scroll down a little to see the posts about that.) Yes, it is entirely possible that she met Sam in the bar. That would cast him in a very different light...
Remember, we don't see Maddie actually leave the club, just the person David thinks is her. Then the next day, early in Sam and Dave, Maddie tells him that fake story about what she did that night. We know at least part of the tale is wrong, because she completely skips over any mention of being at Metropolis...and David himself knows she was there. What kind of place is it, and why would she not want to talk about it?...Right.
She said she went grocery shopping, then home; picked up the message and met with Sam. That's her story the second day. However, we recognize off the bat it's wrong. David can't call her out on that without explaining how he knows the difference...uh-oh, big fight.
Still, there is much ambiguity over what happened and when. That's part of what creates the dramatic tension that drives everyone crazy over the next few days.

I always thought that it was too much of a coincidence that just when she was in need of a man in her life, one of her childhood friend makes an appearance.
It's entirely possible that she met him at Metropolis but I think it was more like a message on the answering machine once she arrived home after a frustrated night. What I don't get is why she let him stay through the night... unless the rain was already so heavy that they opted for his staying.
