Singles Parties, February 20-21, 2009

Only 2 parties this past weekend:
  • Pre-Oscars Ball, Friday, Feb 20, Michael's in Mountain View. Not as large of a turnout as last year's ball. Perhaps our singles are burned out from attending too many of our Valentines parties? I took the night off myself (Barbara Millin of Singles Supper Club very graciously gave me the night off to relax after I ran so many Valentine parties). I heard it was a fun party from Jack Borok, who runs Sierra Singles (Loma Prieta Chapter).
  • Art & Wine Tasting & Tour, Feb 21, Art Works Downtown in San Rafael. Nice turnout and a great party. Many of our singles toured the underground labyrinth of art studios in this fascinating, giant art gallery.

Next week features four singles events:

  • MidLife Singles Mixer, Monday, Feb 23, at a beautiful new location for us, Azul near Union Square in San Francisco. This is our first MidLife party in several months, so we expect the place will be packed!
  • Finding a Lasting Relationship Seminar, Tuesday, Feb 24, at Santa Rosa Jr College. This is the seminar I have taught to rave reviews at 61 colleges!
  • Lock & Key Singles Dance, Thursday, Feb 26, at Easy925 in Danville. We had a great turnout for last year's party at this fun nightclub, which is now under new ownership and a new name (formerly Blend Night Club).
  • Monterey Bay Singles Convention, Saturday, Feb 28, at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey. This is the largest annual gathering of romantic eligibles in the entire Monterey Bay area!

Singles Parties, January 30 - February 15, 2009

Valentine's Day is always the busy season for singles parties. No one wants to be alone on V-Day! That's why we produced so many parties in such a short period of time:
  • Marin Singles Convention, Friday, Jan 30, at Servino's in Tiburon. This annual event is always well-attended, but this time we had the biggest crowd in years!
  • Art & Wine Tasting Party at Jack London Square, Saturday, Jan 31, at Swarm Art Gallery in Oakland. Last year's party was so well-attended, we repeated it. Another nice turnout.
  • Valentine Lock & Key Dance, Friday, Feb 6, at The Clarion in Millbrae. As always, a big crowd. Our singles love the high ceilings and beautiful chandeliers in this lovely hotel ballroom.
  • Free Single Travel Party, Sunday, Feb 8, at Faz in Sunnyvale. Originally scheduled for Palo Alto a week earlier, but we had to move the party to this new location and date. Great turnout anyway. Ann Thomas gave her annual slide show about affordable trips for singles to exotic destinations worldwide, followed by socializing. A lot of people stayed for dinner afterwards. If you missed this party, you can still find out about all of the great trips at
  • Valentine Mixer, Tuesday, Feb 10, at First Street Cafe in Benicia. Small but fun group attended.
  • Valentine Cougars Mixer, Thursday, Feb 12, at Trader Vic's in Emeryville. We were overwhelmed! Over 220 singles filled our private banquet room before we had to start turning people away. Such a huge crowd for a weeknight party. We were shocked! The overflow crowd filled up the restaurant's bar up front. Sorry the party was so crowded. We had no way of predicting how many would arrive. People stayed late, they were having so much fun.
  • Valentine Art & Wine Tasting Party, Friday, Feb 13, at The Artists Alley in San Francisco. Nice turnout, although not as big as last year's party at this gorgeous art gallery.
  • Young Single Professionals Valentine Party, Friday, Feb 13, at The Blue Chalk Cafe in Palo Alto. Our smallest YSP party, perhaps because we were competing with ourselves with the other party that night in San Francisco (see above).
  • Meet Your Valentine Convention, Saturday, Feb 14, at the Westin St Francis Hotel on Union Square in San Francisco. Humongous crowd, as usual, at San Francisco's most famous hotel!
  • Presidents Day Holiday Dance, Sunday, Feb 15, at The Carlos Club in San Carlos. It was raining cats and dogs, but we still had a good crowd and a fun party!

Next week we slow down with only two parties:

  • Pre-Oscars Singles Ball, Friday, Feb 20, 8pm-12, at Michael's at Shoreline Park in Mountain View. We can pretend we are at one of the fancy parties in Hollywood! Predict the winners and win a prize.
  • Art & Wine Tasting & Tour, Saturday, Feb 21, 7:30-9:30pm, at Art Works Downtown in San Rafael. If you haven't toured the mysterious labyrinth downstairs, you are in for a treat!
