Parties, July 25-29, 2006

We had great weather for our first-ever GenX party, on Tuesday, July 25, but not enough men in that age group attended. A few obviously much older gentlemen showed up, wanting to meet younger women. There has to be a way to reach men born between 1961 and 1981, but we haven't figured it out yet. Maybe you have some suggestions...?

Our two Dances by the Bay were big successes. On Friday we visited a lovely new location, Pasta Pelican Restaurant. The appetizers were delicious and plentiful and everyone I spoke with enjoyed the lovely view. The one negative was that a few people had trouble finding it. We will definitely do another party there in the future. Our Golden Gate Yacht Club party on Saturday had almost 300 attendees. This venue always attracts the big numbers! High energy crowd. Terrific weather, so people were able to enjoy the outdoor decks.

Dr. Janet Hecht, who runs our Saturday Night Singles parties in San Rafael, reports that the July 29 party had a good crowd and great food. Our DJ, Mike Keating, did a nice job, as always. Unfortunately we had a few rowdy people who obviously had too much to drink. They were spraying each other with water to cool down, so Janet had to temporarily turn on the lights, turn off the music, and clear the dance floor, so it could be dried off. People calmed down after that and the party went well until midnight. We want you to have a good time at the parties, but all good things in moderation, please.

Francesca Gentille, who is our Keynote Speaker at the Contra Costa Singles Convention this coming Friday, August 4, was interviewed for a long segment on Channel 7 on Monday afternoon. She was quite entertaining as she revealed why Italians are the best flirts, and how Americans can learn to flirt like Italians. We expect a big crowd at the convention, which not only features Francesca, but also a giant dance party, at the lovely Renaissance ClubSport Hotel Ballroom in Walnut Creek.

This coming Thursday, Aug 3, we do our first-ever party in Los Gatos at Number One Broadway Nightclub. It starts with a fun mixer, 7:30-9:30pm, including appetizers first hour, followed by dancing to the live music of Lara Price & The Velvet Plum. Helluva deal for only $10!

On Sunday, Aug 6, we do our first-ever Beer Tasting Party in Sonoma County at Russian River Brewing Company in downtown Santa Rosa. After enjoying some great beers, 3-5pm, with appetizers, everyone is invited to stay for live music. Again, for $10, helluva deal.

As the world's largest non-profit singles organization we pride ourselves on the fact that we not only do more parties for singles, in more locations, than anyone else, but also do them affordably. Our Saturday Night Singles parties, every Saturday in San Rafael, are always $10, and not only include a DJ playing your favorite hits, but also hot hors d'oeuvres the first hour, in a lovely hotel with free parking. Most of our other parties are $10-$20. Occasionally we charge $25, as in the case of our Golden Gate Yacht Club party last Saturday, but that included not only dancing, but also a delicious buffet dinner. Our most expensive parties usually are our Wine Tasting Parties ($30), but bear in mind that that includes tasting 15-20 wines from boutique wineries, plus appetizers. Also bear in mind that you can always prepay for the wine tasting parties (and many of our other parties) for a $10 discount. It pays to commit early!

Hope to see you at one of our four parties this coming weekend! More details at www.ThePartyHotline.com.
