Singles Parties, May 24-26, 2007

Our four parties over Memorial Day Weekend were wildly contrasting. We started the weekend early on Thursday, May 24 with two parties: one huge and and one tiny. The huge party was the Carnaval Party we co-sponsored with the SF Bay Guardian at Medjool Restaurant in San Francisco. A thousand people attended. It's not hard to attract a crowd when admission is free, the food is free, and there is live music! The same night we co-sponsored a Young Single Professionals party at Fahrenheit Ultra Lounge, which was our smallest YSP party ever. The only thing we can figure out is that maybe people just don't want to go to downtown San Jose (our first party there).

Friday night we had a great party at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco. We concluded the weekend with our Saturday night party at a new location for us, the Crowne Plaza in Milpitas. My scheduled DJ for the night called in sick with the flu Saturday afternoon, so I had to scramble for a last minute DJ over a holiday weekend. And you thought YOUR job was stressful. I wound up hiring a new DJ who came in all the way from Stockton! He did a great job, and I will definitely hire him again. The party was packed. The only complaint was that the Krystall Ballroom was too small. I explained that the big ballroom at the hotel was already taken (with a Graduation Party), so this was the best I could do on a popular Saturday night (hard to get ballrooms on Saturday nights because of weddings, etc.)

Next weekend kicks off early again on a Thursday night with a Singles Mixer/Karaoke/Dance Party at the Flamingo Resort Hotel in Santa Rosa. On Friday night we kickoff the month of June with a Wine Tasting & Dance Party at Mr Smiths Night Club in San Francisco. Then we conclude the weekend with a Wine Tasting Party in the gorgeous Valley of the Moon in Kenwood (near Sonoma), featuring the wines of five small boutique wineries.
