July 14 - 18 Parties

Our Peacock Gap Country Club party on Friday, July 14 started out well. But we had a big problem. The police set up a Sobriety Checkpoint on the road to the Country Club. So everyone was paranoid about a DUI. So they didn't drink. And they left early. It's a shame, because this is a wonderful location. This is the first time in 28 years of singles parties (over 2,000) that I have run that the party has been ruined by the police. Not that I favor drinking and driving...

On Saturday, July 15, we sponsored two parties. 1. The Asian/Non-Asian Speed Dating party in Burlingame had a terrific crowd. Sorry that we had to turn away anyone who wasn't prepaid. Just too many people showed up. 2. Our Bastille Day Celebration in San Rafael was a good party... eventually. Very slow the first two hours, then everyone showed up at the same time and the dance floor was packed.

Great wine tasting party on Sunday afternoon at Bargetto's Winery in Soquel (Santa Cruz area). Big crowd. Perfect weather. Lovely location overlooking the Soquel River. Wish every party could be like this one!

Tuesday, July 18, we did a Singles Mixer for the first time at the Pleasanton Hotel. Nice turnout for a Tuesday night. I was afraid that people wouldn't leave the house because of the 104 degree heat that day in Pleasanton, but they came anyway. Fortunately we had air conditioning!

Speaking of air conditioning, all of our parties have A/C. On Friday, July 21 we co-sponsor the first ever Baby Boomers Bash with Singles Supper Club, at the Sheraton San Jose. Baby Boomers were born between 1946 and 1964. For those of you born later, we have a Generation X Party (also co-sponsored with SSC) on Tuesday, July 25, at Fanny & Alexander's in Palo Alto. If it is a warm night like last time at F&A, we'll have a great party on their outdoor patio! Please note that adults of all ages are welcome at any of our parties, but these two parties are targeting specific age groups.

Our Saturday Night Singles Party on July 22 is 50s Night, featuring the great hits of the 1950s (Elvis, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Rick Nelson, etc.) Our DJ will also spin some of your favorite hits from other eras as well, including today's hottest hits, at Embassy Suites San Rafael.

DON'T LET THE HEAT SPOIL YOUR FUN! Hope you can join us.

There was NO air conditioning at the Sheraton Hotel. The temperature in the room was at least 90. It was one of the most UNCOMFORTABLE experiences I've had. I will not attend another party and neither will some of my friends.

Sorry to John and all those who attended our Sheraton San Jose party last Friday. It was over 100 degrees outside that day and the hotel's air conditioning system just couldn't keep up with the heat.

In order for the airconditioning to "keep up" it must be turned ON!
This has been an ongoing problem at ALL of the dances.
