Singles Parties, April 6-8, 2006

Amazingly, with all the rain we've been having, we were fairly dry at all three of our parties this past weekend.

A lot of our regulars skipped our Lock & Key Party - Silicon Valley on Thursday night, figuring they would avoid the rain and just go to the Stanford Bachelors party on Friday. Big mistake. Thursday night was beautiful! We were able to hold the party out on Fanny & Alexander's outdoor patio, with heat lamps. People had a lot of fun, especially enjoying the ambience of an outdoor party on a lovely evening. Lock & Key mixers are ideal, because even if you are the shyest person on the planet, you get to meet everyone. It's just a gimmick, but it works! Fanny & Alexander's also gave us some great appetizers.

It rained a little during our Friday night Art & Wine Tasting Party in SF, but that didn't dampen the enthusiasm! Jeremy Sutton, the well-known local artist, was on hand to display his terrific paintings. And Patrick Dalal of put on his usual lavish display of over 20 great wines. Lots of new people attended, which was great. People don't just want to see the same old faces at the parties (although it's fun to recognize people). They want the new blood.

Saturday Night Singles was a strange party. It was dead from 8-10pm. Then our singles started pouring in. The dance floor was packed from 10pm until after midnight. It turned out to be a great party. But where was everyone earlier in the evening? It's enough to turn a single promoter's hair grey! We do our best to get people to come early. I tell people if you come at 8pm, we'll feed you. Our chef always puts out substantial hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, but it lasts as long as it lasts. The other advantage of coming early is you get a good seat. The people who come late and wait for the party to be established miss out on the great food and the best seats around the dance floor.


Next weekend we have four parties all over the Bay Area:
1. Lock & Key Mixer in SF on Thursday night.
2. Astrological Matchmaking Party, with FREE readings, in Napa on Friday night.
3. Spring Night Delight Dance at the Sheraton Silicon Valley on Saturday night.
4. Easter Party at Saturday Night Singles in San Rafael
