Singles Parties, Jan 8-12, 2008

Quite a variety of parties this past week. We started with a Tuesday night Mixer at a new location for us--Hungry Hunter in Fairfield. Not a big crowd, due to the rain, but everyone appeared to make contact and have fun. The food was terrific. We actually had some left over, probably because the #1 New Years Resolution in America each year is to lose weight!

Our Lock & Key & Dance on Friday, Jan 11 was extremely well-attended, with lots of new faces. This is my second dance party at this location, but I missed the first one because I was escorting 40 singles to Greece and Turkey last September. So I didn't know there was no dance floor in the big banquet room at Sinbad's Restaurant, until I showed up to run this party. Surprisingly, no one complained. It was just too great of a party for people to mind it!

Likewise our Wine Tasting & Dance Party Saturday, Jan 12 at Alberto's Nightclub in Mountain View attracted a big crowd. In our early publicity we had stated that there would be a live band at this party. Unfortunately, the nightclub cancelled the live band only a few days before the party. I was able to change the info on my website and also in the email blast to my 9,700 singles to state that instead of live music we would have DJ HickeyB! playing your favorite hits early in the evening, to be followed by the House DJ playing Latin music. Suprisingly nobody complained about this. Either they got the info in time about the change in music, or they had so much fun they just didn't care. Either way, it's great to do two excellent parties with a minimum of complaints!

Next weekend we have three parties, beginning Friday night, Jan 18, with our first-ever party at the Radisson Hotel's Grand Salon in Dublin. Should be an extra large turnout, because our singles love new places to party!

Our Young Single Professionals Party, for late 20s to early 40s, is on Saturday, Jan 19, at another new location for us, Roe Restaurant in San Francisco. Our fun Mixer Game is followed by a Dance Party. For those of you on the other end of the age spectrum, we have a Mid-Life Singles Party (50+) on Thursday, Jan 24, in Los Gatos. We have a terrific live band that night, The Joints Chiefs.

We conclude the weekend with another Free Single Travel Party on Sunday, Jan 20, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Concord. Our two single travel parties earlier this month, in Sunnyvale and San Rafael, were both well-attended, despite the rain, and we expect an even larger crowd for this one, weather-permitting.

Our largest party of the second half of January is likely to be our WINTER NIGHT DELIGHT PARTY on Friday, Jan 25 at the Westin Hotel SFO Ballroom in Millbrae, co-sponsored with Singles Supper Club. Dance to your favorite hits with DJ Slick.
