Singles Parties, May 16-20, 2007

We produced 5 singles parties this past week, all remarkably different.

The first, Forum Vinum on May 16, was highly unusual for us--on a Wednesday afternoon. I guess that's why there was such a small turnout--our singles all must work for a living! It's a shame they couldn't take time off from their jobs--we had great wines from 80 French wineries to taste (including $90 bottles of cognac). Lots of fun.

Our first ever party at the new Willie Mays Sky Box Lounge (formerly Kimball's) was on Thursday night. Beautiful nightclub. "Pure Ecstasy," the Live Band, definitely deserved their name! The 4 singers (accompanied by live band) sang all the oldies we love. Our singles were very enthusiastic with their applause, and were dancing up a storm on the giant wooden dance floor. Next time we do a party there I will feature the live entertainment so everyone will know to come, despite it being a Thursday night. I just didn't know "Pure Ecstasy" was that good, so I didn't play them up.

On Friday night we had our annual Carnival Party, at the gorgeous Illusions Night Club in Palo Alto. The lighting was spectacular. Everyone loved the Mas Makers Massive Dancers, in their lovely costumes. DJ Miguel did another great job of spinning the right tunes to keep the dance floor full all night. We also had an optional dinner earlier in the evening. The food was delicious!

On Saturday afternoon, for the very first time, we sponsored Singles Day at the Mountain Play, featuring the dress rehearsal for "Hair," the hippie rock musical that got so may headlines 40 years ago. No nudity in this performance, at the Cushing outdoor amphitheatre on Mt Tam in Mill Valley, but quite a spectacle nevertheless. The performance was a fundraiser for the Marin Symphony. We're glad they asked us to bring our singles!

We concluded the week Sunday night with a free party at Jack's Bistro at Jack London Square. Tom Pattinson, the Singles Retirement Guru, gave an eye-opening seminar. Bob Steiner, Magician Extraordinaire, entertained everyone with his magic. There were also complimentary hors d'oeuvres. If you didn't get a chance to catch Tom's talk, he is happy to give you free retirement advice over the phone at 415/883-1426.

Another busy itinerary of four parties this coming weekend, beginning with our first-ever party at the famous Fahrenheit Ultra Lounge in San Jose on Thursday, May 24. We have the private, luxurious upstairs lounge, just for our Young Single Professionals (late 20s to early 40s), with our fun Mixer Game, complimentary hors d'oeuvres first hour, and Dance Party.

The same night we are co-sponsoring the San Francisco Bay Guardian's Singles Carnaval Party on the rooftop at Medjool Night Club, 2522 Mission St., near the 24th St. BART Station in San Francisco This is a FREE party, with music and food. SFBG is predicting 400 will attend. Be sure to place your free personal ad at

Friday night features An Elegant Evening at the Parc 55. Dress in your finest for this elegant soiree! Conveniently located near the Market/Powell St. BART Station in San Francisco.

The Grand Finale is a Lock & Key and Dance on Saturday night at another new location, Crowne Plaza in Milpitas. Conveniently located at the junction of Hwy 880 and Hwy 237.

You had a massive crowd at the Concord Crowne Plaza and ONE bartender!!!! That was inexcusable. Several people at the party went to the hotel manager to complain about it but they did nothing. And why no air conditioning? That place was hotter than hell. The overhead lighting was atrocious, no one would be flattered by that lighting, especially not the older women and bald men that attend!
The DJ didn't even have Usher, who is a totally mainstream act. He was awful. It's a shame your events are so well attended and so uncomfortable due to the ugly venue, the bad service, the dated music, the lighting, the heat, etc. It's a crime to treat people this way. Get a clue. It's digusting to see you gloat on this blog when this was the reality of this despicable event. Someday you are going to have competition and have to learn event planning 101. Rule no 1- MAKE PEOPLE COMFORTABLE! If you can't learn at least that, get out of the business.
