Parties, Labor Day Weekend

People think that a 3 day weekend is a bad time to throw singles parties, because everyone is out of town. Not true! Most people stay home any weekend of the year, and they are especially eager to party on a 3 day weekend! This Labor Day Weekend was no different.

We started the weekend off with a bang at our Art & Wine Tasting & Dance Party on Friday, Sept 1, at Linen Life Art Gallery in Emeryville. As was the case with our first party there, we had a great crowd. People thoroughly enjoyed the venue and the wine. Last time the dance floor was packed until almost midnight, but this time the party burnt out early. Don't know why. The feedback I got was that people were tired after working hard all week, then tasted a lot of boutique wines (which makes you sleepy), then danced, then went home.

We have two more Art & Wine Tasting Parties this month, Friday, Sept 15 at Sonya Paz Fine Art Gallery in Santa Clara; and Friday, Sept 29 at Artists Alley in San Francisco. Please note that these are Art & Wine Tasting Parties only, no dancing. We have plenty of dance parties this month, if you love dancing. Visit for a complete list of parties.

Saturday night's party in San Rafael was smaller than usual, but I don't think it was because everyone was out of town. It's just that there were so many other fun things to do that night in Marin County! Lots of stiff competition, especially the live band (with no cover) at Larkspur Landing. Plus, we didn't have a special theme, which always draws lots of extra people. Next Saturday, Sept 9, we have our annual Saturday Night Fever Party, with a free Saturday Night Hustle lesson early on, followed by dancing to all kinds of music, including songs from the movie. We hope to attract another big crowd for this special theme.

Also this coming Saturday we co-sponsor an Asian/Non-Asian Speed Dating/Karaoke/Dance with Your Asian Connection. With the speed dating, you have your choice of being in the Asian to Asian section or the Asian to Non-Asian section. Some Asian women specifically want to meet a Caucasian man, and others prefer meeting an Asian man. This party caters to both and is open to all races and all ages. Big location in the Vallco Shopping Mall in Cupertino. More details at

Our Holiday parties concluded Sunday night at a new location for us: The Vinyl Room in Burlingame. Some complained that the place was too small, but frankly, at a singles party you need intimacy. I have done lots of parties in large venues that didn't go well, because people were intimidated by the size of the room. The Vinyl Room was the perfect size for the crowd (110 people) and it was a great party because of that.

Next weekend kicks off early on Thursday, Sept 7, at Northern California's largest salsa club, Cafe Cocomo. We have our own private room for our Singles Mixer at 7pm, with appetizers; followed by free salsa dance lesson; followed by a Salsa Dance Party with an 8-piece Live Band plus DJ. All for only $10! Such a deal.

Our most elegant event of the Summer follows on Friday, Sept 8. Our annual Black & White Summer Ball again is being held at the lovely and large David's Restaurant on the Santa Clara Golf Course. Dress in your finest for this classy soiree. I will wear my tux, of course. Guys always ask if they need to wear a tux. The answer is yes, if you own a tux. But there is no need to go out and rent one. Not required. Just wear your best. The ladies will most definitely be all decked out, and they appreciate it when a man goes to the trouble of looking good. This will be very large, high-energy party, co-sponsored with Singles Supper Club.

Hope you can join us for one or more of our four parties this coming weekend. More details about these and many more parties at
