3 parties this past weekend. One giant; two small:
  • North Bay Mixer, Tuesday, March 3, at Sally Tomatoes in Rohnert Park. This venue was recommended to me by one of our regulars who attends our singles parties. He thought it would be a great space for one of our mixers, and it was... except that it was extremely difficult to find. It was my first time there, and I had trouble finding it myself (even with directions). Wish I had scouted it out in advance, but when you produce 150 singles parties a year, there's not a lot of time for exploring. We had a decent turnout anyway, but I'm sure it would have been much bigger if I had given explicit directions to this fun cafe.
  • East Bay Singles Convention, Saturday, March 7, at the legendary Claremont Resort Hotel in Berkeley. We promoted this party as our largest of 2009 in the East Bay, and it lived up to its billing! Humongous crowd, great party. Best-selling author Susan RoAne gave a fine talk on her latest book, Face-to-Face, followed by terrific dance music by DJ Miguel. Great evening!
  • Sunday in the City Mixer, March 8, at Jillian's in San Francisco. Our singles arrived late, and in a bad ratio. Usually the men come earlier than the women, but this time the men came late. It was hard to get the party going with a disproportionate balance, but eventually the men arrived and we had a reasonably good party. The food was terrific!

Next week only features two singles parties:

  • Single Cougars Mixer, Tuesday, March 10, at The Spinnaker in Sausalito. We've had tremendous publicity at our previous Cougar parties, and this one will be no different. Both the Marin Independent Journal and Marin Scope newspapers are covering this, the first-ever Cougar party in Marin. Should be a very large crowd.
  • Blast From Past Dance, Lucky Friday the 13th of March, at The San Mateo Marriott. We expect a big turnout, as always at our parties at this popular hotel. DJ HickeyB! will play our favorite hits from the 60s and the 70s.
