Singles Parties, September 22 - 26, 2009

3 parties this past week:
  • Napa River Mixer, Tuesday, Sept 22, at Silo's Jazz Club. Beautiful club, great food, fun party. Small turnout.
  • National Singles Week Mixer, Thursday, Sept 24, at Trader Vic's in Emeryville. Nice turnout, great food, as always at Trader Vic's!
  • Cougar Mixer & Dance, Saturday, Sept 26, at Roe Night Club in San Francisco. Big crowd. This time we had a nice turnout of women, unlike our last Cougar Party. Hope the ladies keep coming to these cougar parties. Wouldn't be much of a Cougar Party without cougars!

We have a terrific lineup of parties for the next month:

  • Wine Tasting Party on Union Square, Tuesday, Sep 29, at Simayof Jewelers in San Francisco. This is our first-ever party at this exclusive Jewelry Center. BONUS: Half price off most of the inventory, at our party only!
  • Lock & Key Dance, Friday, Oct 2, at Crowne Plaza Concord. We used to do lots of big parties at this fun location years ago. This is our triumphant return!
  • Blast From the Past Dance, Friday, Oct 9, at Cafe Cocomo in San Francisco. This huge nightclub is the perfect venue for a party. Tonight features the greatest hits from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, spun by DJ Mendy and played by Pop Fiction (live band).

Dance to your favorite hits with DJ HickeyB!, plus enjoy the great appetizers from Trader Vic's, served at 8pm, as long as they last.

Singles Parties, September 17-19, 2009

Three parties this past week:
  • Mill Valley Mixer, Thursday, September 17, at a new location, Frantoio Ristorante in Mill Valley. Nice turnout, upscale location. We will do this one again in a few months.
  • Summer in the City Lock & Key, Friday, September 18, at Sinbad's in San Francisco. Our smallest turnout ever at this usually popular location. Don't know what happened...
  • Battle of the Decades, Saturday, September 19, at The Claremont Resort Hotel in Berkeley. Another big crowd, as always, for this luxurious hotel! Great party.

Three more parties this week:

  • Napa River Mixer, Tuesday, September 22, at Silo's Jazz Club at the Napa River Inn. Thank God they have air-conditioning, as this will be a very hot evening!
  • National Singles Week Mixer, Thursday, September 24, at Trader Vic's in Emeryville. Always a great turnout at this most spectacular restaurant on the water.
  • Cougar Mixer & Dance, Saturday, September 26, at Roe in San Francisco. This lovely boutique night club is a fun place to mingle and dance. Our last cougar party (Aug 28) was huge, and we are hoping for another great turnout!

Singles Parties, September 5 - 12, 2009

5 parties over the past two weeks:
  • Wine Tasting Dance on Saturday, September 5, at Spin Ultra Lounge. Nice turnout, but there were more complaints about this venue than any other for many years! Apparently the women's rest room was not working properly (for obvious reasons, I was unable to investigate), plus the place was not as tidy as some would like. Sorry about that. Most of our parties are at upscale hotels and restaurants. I guess most of our singles prefer these locations. For variety, however, we also like to do parties at large night clubs. Often night clubs are shabby. So my suggestion would be for anyone who prefers luxury to skip our night club parties and just go to the nicer locations.
  • Sonoma Wine Country Wine Tasting on Sunday, September 6, at Vine Tastings in Windsor. Decent turnout for a location far from most of our singles, and a wonderful venue. I thoroughly enjoyed three of the four boutique wines that were served. Great food! If you pass by Windsor in the future (north of Santa Rosa), stop in to Vine Tastings.
  • Salsa Mixer & Dance on Thursday, October 10, at Cafe Cocomo. Moderate sized crowd. Good food. Nice mix of singles.
  • Singles Extravaganza on Friday, September 11, at the Clarion SFO in Millbrae. Huge crowd, as always, at this annual event.
  • Michael Jackson Dance on Saturday, September 12, at the Embassy Suites in San Rafael. Never before had we dedicated an entire evening (four hours) to one recording artist. We made the exception for the King of Pop! Great turnout, high energy party. Wish all of our parties were this much fun!

3 more parties coming up this weekend:

  • Mill Valley Mixer, Thursday, September 17, at Frantoio Ristorante. This is a new location for us, very upscale. We haven't done a party in Mill Valley in a while, so we should have a very good turnout.
  • Summer in the City Lock & Key Dance, Friday, September 18, at Sinbad's in San Francisco. Always a good turnout for our parties at this waterfront restaurant. Great views of the Bay if it's a clear night.
  • Battle of the Decades Dance, Saturday, September 19, at the Claremont Resort Hotel in Berkeley. Past parties have been very well-attended at this luxurious hotel. Tonight's party, for the first time, features a different decade of music each hour, beginning with 70s music 8-9pm; 80s music 9-10pm; 90s music 10-11pm; and 2000s music the last hour. Should be fun!
