Singles Parties, November 9-11, 2007

The rain hit this past weekend, and I was sure worried. A lot of people don't like to be out at night on slick roads. Our annual Singles Extravaganza is our signature event. We have to get a giant turnout or lose a lot of face. I needn't have worried! Our singles braved the elements and the ballroom was packed on Saturday night, November 10. Dr. Susan Campbell was our keynote speaker, discussing her book "Truth in Dating." DJ HickeyB! did a terrific job of keeping the energy going, with just the right mix of fast and slow, old and new hits. It's tough being a DJ at one of our parties, with singles in their 20s demanding one type of music; and baby boomers and older asking for the great retro hits.

The previous night, Friday, November 9, we held our annual North Bay Singles Convention. Yours truly gave a talk, just for the women, on "How to Pick Up Men." Daniel Johnson, of Pickup101, was in the next ballroom teaching the men "How to Pick Up Women." At 9pm we opened up the air wall separating the two halves of the ballroom and had a dance party, plus the North Bay's first-ever Pickup Artist Championship. Congratulations to Atty Ott, who won the title of "Ms. North Bay Pickup Artist Champion," and Mike Sessi, who won the title of Mr. North Bay Pickup Artist Champion. You should have seen both of them in action! Everyone appeared to have a great time at the party!

We concluded the weekend on Sunday afternoon with a fun Wine Tasting Party at Kastania Vineyards in Petaluma. Excellent turnout! We got lucky, as the sun came out for a glorious afternoon in the Sonoma Wine Country.

Next week we have 3 fun parties scheduled. Sadie Hawkins Day comes every November 15, which this year falls on a Thursday. We will celebrate at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Vallejo.

On Friday we combine two fun activities in one party, with a Shopping & Wine Tasting Party at Sports Basement in Sunnyvale. We conclude the week on Saturday night with a Dance by the Bay with Luau Buffet at our most popular party venue, the Golden Gate Yacht Club in San Francisco!

Details about all the parties at See you at the parties!

The signature event in Millbrae on Saturday November 10, was a lot of fun.
I'm just curious as to how many people attended?
