Singles Parties, March 4-8, 2008

We had 4 parties this past week, with widely contrasting formats and locations.

The first was our FREE Singles Financial Planning Seminar and Social, on Tuesday, March 4, at the Embassy Suites San Rafael. Tom Pattinson, CSA, gave an enlightening seminar on "Don't Run Out Money When You Retire." Our singles appreciated Tom's advice, as well as the wine, food, and refreshments.Thanks, Tom! If you missed Tom's presentation, he is available for a free consultation at 415/883-1426. Or visit his website at

On Thursday, March 6, we had our first-ever party at the legendary Trader Vic's Restaurant in Emeryville. Large crowd, great food and fun. We will be doing more parties at Trader Vic's, including a Young Single Professionals Mixer on March 27; and a Mid-Life Singles Mixer (TBA).

We had great plans for our first-ever Lady in Red/Men in Black Party at Tarragon in Sunnyvale on Friday, March 7. Unfortunately, our usual private banquet room upstairs was double-booked by the restaurant, so they moved us down to the first floor/main restaurant. It turned out to be a very good dance party, but some people were unhappy that we didn't have the room upstairs with the giant wooden dance floor. Hopefully the restaurant will not make this mistake again, as our singles love the upstairs banquet room! Many of our singles came earlier in the evening to share a Progressive Dinner (you change tables after each course). I heard nothing but compliments from everyone I spoke with about the food.

We concluded the week with our 2nd Annual Art & Wine Tasting Party on Saturday, March 8, at Art Works Downtown in San Rafael. This year's attendance was even larger than that of last year, so I guess our singles like this place! If you did not get a chance to attend, check out the art gallery on your own. It is huge and well worth exploring! Our next Art & Wine Tasting Party will be on Saturday, April 12 at our most popular art venue, California Modern Art Gallery in San Francisco.

Next week we only have two parties, beginnng with our first-ever at Nicolino's Garden Cafe in Sunnyvale on Thursday, March 13, 7-9pm. Only $10 at the door includes our fun Mixer Game, plus appetizers for those who arrive on time. If you want to come fashionably late, that's ok, but you may not get fed!

Also next we week we have our 2nd Annual Lock & Key & Dance at the San Mateo Marriott on Saturday, March 15. Last year's party was very well-attended, and we hope the same will be true this time.
