Singles Parties, Feb 14-15, 2008

Our two parties this week were opposites, one being small, the other very large.

Not surprising that our Valentines Day Mixer on Feb 14 at the Embassy Suites in Napa was the smaller one. After all, it was a Thursday night, and we usually have to wait for the weekend to attract a big crowd. But being that it was the big day, V-Day, I thought we would attract a much larger crowd. Perhaps singles were embarrassed to go to a Valentines Day party without a date? Doesn't make sense to me, but not everyone in this world is rational...

I thought the idea of celebrating Valentines Day with a Dance the next day (Feb 15) was a silly one. But Jerry Gulick of Beachcomber Singles asked me to set one up on that day, and HE WAS RIGHT. Terrific turnout at the Concord Hilton! You can be sure we'll do a Feb 15 Valentines Dance again! After producing over 2,000 parties for singles over the past 30 years on six continents, I thought I knew something about singles parties. Apparently not...

We have FIVE singles events this coming week. We begin on Tuesday, Feb 19, with another mixer at the luxurious Circa Restaurant in the Marina District of San Francisco. Last year's party was very crowded, and we are hoping for a repeat this time.

We do our first COMBINATION Lock & Key & Dance & Optional Progressive Dinner on Friday, Feb 22, at the giant Illusions Night Club and Restaurant in Palo Alto. Three parties in one! We always have a big crowd at this location, since this is the finest nightclub in the Silicon Valley. You can't miss, with the huge ceilings, great lighting, and gigantic wood dance floor! If you haven't been at one of our Progressive Dinners before, it's a great way to meet people BEFORE the dancing starts, and get to know them over a relaxing dinner. We rotate the tables after each course. This is an excellent Lebanese Restaurant, with delicious entree, salad, dessert, coffee, tax, and tip (all-inclusive) for only an additional $25. The Lock & Key & Dance ONLY are $15/advance or $20/door.

On Saturday, Feb 23, we return to Sports Basement in Walnut Creek for another Wine Tasting & Shopping Party. Our singles had fun last year combining these two very different activities in one party. With great boutique wines, appetizers, and a 20% shopping discount for every item in the store, this is NOT a party to miss!

On Sunday, Feb 24, we have two evening events. The Marin Symphony is having a special party, just for singles, at 6pm, before the concert at 7:30pm, featuring SCREEN GEMS (classical music from some of the great motion pictures). Also on Feb 24, I will be teaching a seminar on THE ART OF FLIRTING at Santa Rosa Jr College.

It would help if you could post pictures from events. Often times, I hesitate to go because I'm not sure what to wear. If you post pictures, then I could get an idea of what to wear, for example, to a "mixer". Thanks for your consideration.
