June 21-July 9 parties, plus Singles Tour of Europe

I can only report second-hand on our parties from June 21-July 9, because I was escorting a large group of friendly singles on a tour of five countries: Germany, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia. It was a marvelous trip! We spent 7 days on a very comfortable cruise along the Danube River, plus 3 nights at the lovely Renaissance Hotel in Prague. The food and entertainment were excellent, and the tours were outstanding. We have lots of affordable trips coming up. For more info, visit

While I was gone, Barbara Millin of Singles Supper Club ran our Silicon Valley Singles Convention at the newly renovated Sofitel Hotel in Redwood Shores. Lisa Altalida, our keynote speaker, was well-received, and I'm told there was a fun dance following. Patrick Dalal of ran our Lock & Key & Dance in San Francisco on June 30, and our Wine Tasting & Dance in Mt View on July 7. Both were well-attended and a lot of fun. Dr. Janet Hecht ran our Saturday Night Singles dances at the Embassy Suites San Rafael, which went well, other than the air-conditioning going out for an hour on a hot summer night. Hopefully they will fix that A/C system once and for all!

We co-sponsored an Asian/Non-Asian Dance with Your Asian Connection on July 8 at the Sheraton San Jose. Julia tells me it was well-attended and an excellent dance. I would like to have been there, but my plane arrived late from Europe (after midnight). That was the only bad thing about the Singles Tour of Europe--two hours of delays at JFK Airport in NYC, both coming and going.

The next night, I ran the Saturday Night Singles Party, which went well, except for a below-normal turnout. On Sunday, July 10, I ran our first-ever party in Jack London Square in Oakland. We were at a very nice restaurant, right on the water--Jack's Bistro at the Waterfront Plaza Hotel. The crowd enjoyed the Mixer Game--even the bartenders got involved and were flirting so much there was a long wait for drinks!

Next weekend we have four parties:
  • Lock & Key & Dance at the Peacock Gap Country Club in San Rafael on Friday, July 14. We had such a big crowd last time, we decided to repeat at this lovely upscale location!
  • Asian/Non-Asian Speed Dating at Blush Nightclub in Burlingame on Saturday, July 15. We are again co-sponsoring with Your Asian Connection. Adults of all ages and all races welcome.
  • Bastille Day Celebration, Saturday, July 15, at the Embassy Suites in San Rafael. $10 at the door (only $5 if you are French!). I am of French ancestry myself (my dad was born in France). Now you know the derivation of the name Gosse!
  • Wine Tasting Party on Sunday, July 16, at Bargetto's Winery in Soquel (Santa Cruz County), with a lovely view of the Soquel River.

Hope to see you at the parties!
