Singles Parties, August 3-4, 2007

Two widely contrasting singles parties this weekend. On Friday, August 3, we christened the new Sports Basement store in San Francisco with a Wine Tasting Party. What a massive store! We usually do our Wine Tasting parties in art galleries, wineries, or night clubs, so this was definitely a change of pace for us. Nice turnout and people enjoyed tasting the wines, particulary the Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. Sorry, can't remember the name of the winery, so many other wines were there as well to sample!

On Saturday night Krystyna Barron was our Keynote Speaker at the East Bay Singles Convention at Spengers. Her topic was "Sex Is NOT a Dirty Word." Two women walked out int the middle of her talk, presumably because they were uncomfortable with the subject matter. I thought Krystyna did a great job discussing a touchy subject before a mixed gender crowd. Everyone else appeared to enjoy the keynote, and the dance party afterwards went very well. Apparently a hot topic leads to a hot party!

Next week features three more widely contrasting parties. On Tuesday, August 7 we will be hosting a Singles Dance Party at the newly opened Blend Night Club in Danville. The DJ will play your favorite dance hits.

On Thursday we host a Barbary Coast Singles Party at the last standing bar from San Francisco's rough-and-tumble Barbary Coast days. The party features tasting four great beers plus appetizers in an historic brewery, SF Brewing Company.

The week concludes with the Singles Charity Ball in a giant, upscale nightclub in Palo Alto, Illusions. We hope to pack this party, as 100% of the money goes directly to The Seva Foundation to cure blindness. Only $20 at the door (tax-deductible). Our Singles Charity Ball in SF last March attracted 500 singles and raised $11,410 to restore sight to approximately 228 blind people in Tibet, Cambodia, China, East Africa, etc. (at an average cost of $50 per cataract surgery). The DJ will play current hits and oldies with a great sound and lighting system!

I attended the Singles Convention Saturday night and although it was a well organized event, my girlfriend and I found most of the attendees to be much older than us, so we decided on a different venue. I actually thought the speaker was pretty good from what I heard and she handled the touchy question by the audience member with great professionalism.

Different parties attract different age brackets. If you are looking for a younger crowd, I recommend you attend one of our month Young Single Professionals parties, geared for late 20s to early 40s. Next one will be on Thursday, August 30 at the largest Salsa Night Club in the Bay Area, in SF. Details at
