Parties, Feb 8-10, 2007

Always scary to throw parties during the rainy season. So much time and expense goes into each party, only to see everything go down the drain with poor attendance. Well, we survived the deluge. It rained heavily all three nights, but all went well.

We started out on Thursday, Feb 8, at Gaylord's Restaurant in Sausalito. While the attendance was obviously much lower than it would have been on a clear night, it was still fairly crowded. The food was terrific, lots of it, and delicious. Thank you, Gaylord's. Too bad a couple of idiots left their cars in the middle of the parking lot and took their keys with them, so the valet couldn't move them. It took a long time to track them down. Meanwhile, people are parking a block away and trying to get through the severe downpour. Oh well, at least everyone seemed to enjoy the party.

Friday was my birthday, and also that of my wife, Debby. That's right, we both were born on Feb 9th--we met at one of my singles parties eight years ago. So while we were celebrating our birthday, Barbara Millin of Singles Supper Club was hosting our Valentine Dance Gala in Mt View. Tremendous turnout, in spite of the weather. Barbara reports that everyone enjoyed the delicious appetizers at Michael's Restaurant, and the great dance music of Miguel and Linda from Startracks DJ.

We capped off the weekend with a big crowd, again in heavy rain, at our East Bay Singles Convention on Saturday at the Hilton. I delivered the Keynote Address, "Finding Love in 2007," and guaranteed everyone would find love in 2007 or receive a 100% refund. Hopefully I won't get a flurry of calls and emails on New Year's Eve, asking for their money back! There was a catch, of course. They have to follow at least half of my Top 10 Tips for Finding Love, otherwise no refund. The keynote was well-received, and set the tone for a great dance party, featuring, as always the wonderful music of DJ HickeyB! of Choice Music.

I'm so glad that people didn't let the weather spoil their Valentine weekend. Thanks to all of you who braved the elements!

We have our last two Meet Your Valentine parties coming up early in the week. Tuesday, Feb 13, we are hosting an Art & Wine Tasting Party at The Artists Alley in San Francisco. Then on Wednesday, V-day itself, we are hosting a Singles Mixer/Karaoke/Dance at the Flamingo Resort Hotel in Santa Rosa. Should be quite a night!

Next weekend kicks off with a Young Single Professionals Party, our first-ever in San Francisco, Friday night at The Cellar. Then on Saturday we host a Lock & Key and Dance at the Crowne Plaza in Concord, a new location for us. More details at Hope you can make at least one of the parties this coming week!
