Parties, Aug 3-6, 2006

I'm recovering from a whirlwind weekend of four singles parties! It started on Thursday night with a great party at Number One Broadway in Los Gatos. We were overwhelmed by 130 singles, which is a terrific turnout for a Thursday! After our fun mixer, with appetizers, Lara Price & Velvet Plum peformed a great medley of many of my favorite hits. Judging by the reaction of the crowd, they loved it as well. Lara has a great voice. Unfotunately the sound system was not the best, but we had a great time anyway!

On Friday we had an even bigger crowd (of course) for our annual Contra Costa Singles Convention. Author Francesca Gentille set the tone with an inspiring keynote address on Flirting... Italian Style. The dance floor was packed until almost midnight, as Stone Age DJ spun a nice blend of old and new hits. The only negative was one "gentleman" who caused quite a commotion during the party. We have requested that he not attend any of our future parties. If you can't handle your liquor, you shouldn't attend a party! We pride ourselves that we are all moderate drinkers. That's why lovely hotels such as the Renaissance ClubSport are eager to serve as the venues for our parties.

Saturday night's party at the Embassy Suites in San Rafael was fun, except for the beer spill. That's why we insist that no glasses be on the dance floor. The young lady was apologetic, and got a towel from the bar and cleaned the mess herself.

Speaking of beer, Sunday afternoon's party Beer Tasting Party at the Russian River Brewing Company in Santa Rosa had a small turnout, but we had fun. Vinnie, the owner, was most gracious and most generous with both the beer and the food. And the Live Band, Phat, was very entertaining. Quite a value for only $10!

We are expecting a much larger crowd in San Francisco (of course) for our Barbary Coast Beer Tasting Party this coming Thursday, August 10, at the SF Brewing Company. This historic building is a must-see. Visit our website at for all the details about this exciting venue.

If beer is not your cup of tea (sorry for mixing metaphors), come to our Napa Winery Party on Sunday, Aug 13. We have our own exclusive wine tasting party, 1:30-4pm, in the lovely Cedar Room, which can hold up to 250 singles. Please spread the word to all your friends, because it will be embarrassing to me if we don't get the big crowd I promised! $10 includes tasting some great wines, plus light hors d'eouvres. What a lovely location for a Sunday afternoon drive, in the bucolic Napa countryside! Far away from the thousands of tourists on Hwy 29.

We return to Blush Nightclub for another fun party on Saturday, Aug 12. Sorry we had to turn away some people at our last party there (July 15). Just too many singles that night! We will be more careful this time, and promise we won't turn anyone away. The nightclub is exclusively ours for our Lock & Key Mixer, 7:30-10pm. Afrter 10 we have to share the nightclub with the general public. The DJ will play "house" music. We have no control over what is played.

Also on Saturday, as always, we have our Saturday Night Singles party in San Rafael.

Hope to see you at one or more of our four parties this coming weekend! More details at

I attended the party at Number One Broadway in Los Gatos. This was one of the most congenial events of Rich's I've attended, and the social energy was electric. But the dance floor was TINY! By the second song, you could forget getting in any real dancing -- anything other than writhing.

While all in all it was a good party, with lots of attractive, attentive women (the ratio was unusually skewed this night), I would apreciate it if it were not advertised as a "dance".

Glad you enjoyed our first-ever Los Gatos party. It was so well-attended, we are doing it again on Oct 5, with The Joint Chiefs as the Live Band this time. Yes, the dance floor was small, which is typical of nightclubs. Certainly no smaller than than the average nightclub dance floor. They don't make any money off of dancers--only if you buy a drink. So that's always going to be the first priority of a nightclub.
