Singles Parties, September 29 - October 24, 2009

Debby and I vacationed in Europe for three weeks, including being the escorts for the Singles Mediterranean Cruise, which was terrific! If you haven't done these before you won't believe the incredible value these cruises can be. One low price includes everything: all your meals, 24 hours a day; fun parties; spectacular Vegas-style entertainment; travel to exotic ports (we visited Rome, Naples, Florence, and the French Riviera); etc. Details about all upcoming singles cruises and land tours at

While we were away, our associates ran several fun singles parties for us:
  • Wine Tasting Party on Union Square, Tuesday, Sep 29, at Simayof Jewelers in San Francisco. Patrick and Ida report that it was a great party. Not as large as usual, because it was a Tuesday night. In the future we will stick to the larger weekend parties.
  • Lock & Key Dance, Friday, Oct 2, at the Crowne Plaza Concord. Unfortunately there were several huge events going on at the hotel before ours, with 1,000 people attending, so it was tough finding parking in the main hotel lot. Tom was out at the front entrance directing people to free parking across the street. Hope you all were able to find parking!
  • Blast From the Past Singles Mixer & Live Band Dance, Friday, Oct 9, at Cafe Cocomo in San Francisco. Jim Spillane reports that the music was terrific and it was a fun party.
  • Tequila Tasting Party & Dance, Saturday, Oct 10, at Alberto's in Mtn View. Barbara Millin of Singles Supper Club reports it was a fun party.
  • Geeks & Gals Ball, Friday, Oct 16, at Dinah's Garden Hotel/Trader Vic's in Palo Alto. Barbara said this party also went well.
  • Wine Tasting & Dance, Saturday, Oct 17, at Vice Ultra Lounge in Walnut Creek. Patrick reports that this new night club was an excellent venue and the party was well-attended. We will do this night club again!

I returned home from Europe on Oct 19 and was back running singles parties, beginning the next night:

  • Lafayette Single Mingle, Tuesday, Oct 20, at Petar's Restaurant. Nice turnout, very good appetizers. We had the bonus of a singer/piano player who played all the great classic hits from the past.
  • October Night Delight, Friday, Oct 23, at Deer Park Villa in Fairfax. Party went well, except for a couple of neighbors complaining about the noise. The police came and I assured them we would turn down the volume. Party still went great at this lovely venue.
  • Dinner Dance on the Bay, Saturday, Oct 24, aboard The Sherman in Burlingame. Great turnout, as always, at this wonderful restaurant. High energy dance party!

This coming week we have 4 more parties, including 3 Halloween Costume Contest Dance Parties:

  • Blues Day on a Tuesday Singles Mixer with Live Blues Music at MARQS, a new restaurant in Menlo Park. This is our first-ever Menlo Park party!
  • Cougar Halloween Party, Friday, Oct 30, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Emeryville. We have the Top of the Bay Ballroom, with spectacular views of San Francisco, the Bay, and the East Bay hills.
  • Bay Area Halloween Party, Saturday, Oct 31, at Graziano's Ristorante in Petaluma.
  • Santa Cruz Halloween Party, Saturday, Oct 31, at the Hilton Santa Cruz Scotts Valley.
