Parties, Aug 10-13, 2006

For the first time we did Wine Tasting and Beer Tasting parties in the same week. Great turnouts for both! The Beer Tasting was at the San Francisco Brewing Co. on Thursday, Aug 10. The historic venue was terrific--the last standing saloon in SF, where Heavyweight Boxing Champ Jack Dempsey was a bouncer and Public Enemy #1, Baby Face Nelson was captured by the FBI. The appetizers were plentiful and delicious, as was the beer. This was so successful that we are planning several Beer Tasting parties during Oktoberfest, all over the Bay Area. More details later.

The Wine Tasting Party was on Sunday, Aug 13 at the Kirkland Ranch Winery in the lovely Napa countryside. I'm so glad we did this far away from the thousands of tourists jamming up Hwy 29 in the Napa Valley! We have 3 more Wine Tasting parties coming up on Fridays in September: 9/1 in Emeryville; 9/15 in Santa Clara; and 9/29 in SF.

Our Lock and Key and Dance Party was held on Saturday, Aug 12 at Blush Nightclub in Burlingame. Not a big crowd, but very friendly and high-energy. Also that night we had our regular Saturday Night Singles party in San Rafael. I only caught the tail-end of that one, because I was running the party earlier in Burlingame, but people looked like they had a lot of fun. Next Lock & Key & Dance is on Friday, Aug 25 at the Sheraton San Jose.

Only 2 parties this coming weekend (usually we have 3 or 4). On Friday, Aug 18 we host the annual North Bay Singles Convention at the Flamingo Resort Hotel Ballroom in Santa Rosa. This will be the biggest party of the year for singles in the North Bay. Our Keynote Speaker, author Teresa Ann Foxworthy, has an entertaining talk planned for us on Love in the 21st Century, followed by our DJ playing your favorite hits. At Saturday Night Singles in San Rafael, Aug 19, we have a Salsa Party scheduled. Yvonne Benavidez, champion Salsa Dancer and Instructor, will provide salsa dance lesson early in the evening, followed by a Dance Party featuring all kinds of music, including salsa.

CARPOOLING: We don't have the staff to coordinate this, but if you want to ride with other singles going to our parties, feel free to use this blog to ask for or offer a ride. Just give your email address in your blog posting, so our singles can contact you for carpooling.
