Singles Parties, April 3-5, 2008

3 parties this past weekend, beginning with our Mid-Life Singles Convention on Thursday, April 3, at the Flamingo in Santa Rosa. Big crowd for a Thursday night. Our singles enjoyed brief talks by Mason Grigsby, author of Love at SECOND Sight: Playing the Mid-Life Dating Game; and by Annie Gleason of Get a Love Life. The karaoke and dancing that followed were also fun.

The vast majority of our singles skipped the performance of "Insignificant Others," a musical comedy, on Friday, April 4, at Theatre 39 at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Big mistake, as the theme was perfect for singles: that we tend to overvalue romantic relationships (with a "significant other") and undervalue platonic friendships (so-called "insignificant" others). I wish all of our singles could have enjoyed this terrific performance! Earlier in the evening we met downstairs from Theatre 39 for a pre-party at The Hard Rock Cafe. A little loud, but a fun environment.

We concluded the weekend with Spring Night Delight, a waterfront dance party at Sinbad's in SF on Saturday, April 5.It took a long time to get the dance party going--it looked like this was going to be our deadest dance party of the year. Fortunately people eventually loosened up and the dance floor was packed for the rest of the evening.

Next week we have three more parties. Last year's Wine Tasting and Live Band Dance at Number One Broadway in Los Gatos was so much fun, we are doing it again on Thursday, April 10. After the wine tasting, 7:30-9:30pm, Sweet Lucy will provide live music for dancing.

On Friday, April 11 we are co-sponsoring our Spring Ball with Singles Supper Club, at David's in Santa Clara. This is a lovely restaurant and always attracts a big crowd. Dress in your finest for this elegant soiree!

We conclude next weekend with our Farewell Art & Wine Tasting Party on Saturday, April 12, at California Modern Art Museum. It's sad that this wonderful venue is closing. It has been the site of so many large parties for us over the years!
