Singles Parties, November 10 - 21, 2009

6 singles parties in the Bay Area over the past two weeks:
  • Veterans Holiday Mixer, Tuesday, Nov 10, at Swiss Louis at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Small turnout. Lovely venue, great calamari and other appetizers.
  • Men in Black Dance, Friday, Nov 13, at Tarragon in Sunnyvale. It was a LUCKY Friday the 13th for those who attended this fun party, according to Barbara Millin of Singles Supper Club, our co-sponsor. She reports a good crowd.
  • Sadie Hawkins Day Cougar Dance, Saturday, Nov 14, at Sinbad's in San Francisco. Good turnout. The women enjoyed being the initiators on this night, when the men were not allowed to say NO!
  • Jack London Square Mixer, Tuesday, Nov 17, at Kincaid's in Oakland. Fun party, great appetizers, lovely view.
  • November Night Delight Dance, Friday, Nov 20, at Grille 101 at Embassy Suites in San Rafael. Good turnout, fun party. Our next party at this lovely hotel will be our annual North Bay New Years Eve Bash!
  • Lock & Key Dinner Dance, Saturday, Nov 21, aboard The Sherman in Burlingame. Patrick of LockandKeyMatch.com and Ida ran this party, while Debby and I co-hosted the Arizona Cougar Convention. Patrick reports a very crowded dance and fun party.

We have two parties over the Holiday Weekend:

  • Thanksgiving Eve Mixer, Wednesday, Nov 25, at MacArthur Park in Palo Alto. This is a new location for us. We have done many parties at their sister locations in Danville and Pleasanton under the name of Faz, who is the owner.
  • Thanksgiving Dance, Saturday, Nov 28, at the Pleasanton Marriott. Co-sponsored with Beachcomber Singles. All of our past parties over the years have been well-attended at this nice hotel. Our annual Thanksgiving Dance has also been very successful in years past.

Singles Parties, October 27 - November 7, 2009

8 singles parties over the past two busy weeks, including the big one in Beverly Hills:
  • Blues on a Tuesday Mixer, Tuesday, Oct 27, at MARQS Restaurant in Menlo Park. Very attractive new restaurant, with live entertainment each night, including our Singles Mixer, which was well-attended. The food was very good.
  • Cougar Halloween Party, Friday, Oct 30, at the Hilton Garden Inn, Emeryville. Nice turnout, great costumes, fun party! We were in the large Top of the Bay Ballroom, with spectacular views of SF and the Bay, as well as the East Bay Hills.
  • Petaluma Halloween Party, Saturday, Oct 31, at Graziano's in Petaluma. Jim Spillane ran this party while Debby and I ran the party in Santa Cruz (see below). Jim reports that it was a fun party and that DJ Darryl K did a great job with the music and videos.
  • Santa Cruz Halloween Party, Saturday, Oct 31, at the Hilton Hotel. Debby and I wish we had partied in Petaluma (above) instead of driving down to Santa Cruz, because it was a dismal turnout. We were competing against the free giant Halloween Party in Downtown Santa Cruz (15,000+ attended) and it was no contest! The only good news was that the hotel was terrific and the weather was great for two hikes (Saturday afternoon) at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park) and Sunday morning (along Cliff Drive, with the spectacular view of the ocean).
  • Sausalito Waterfront Mixer, Tuesday, Nov 3, at The Spinnaker in Sausalito. Another good turnout, as always at this wonderful restaurant. The night was clear, so we had great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Skyline, and the Bay.
  • California Cougar Convention, Friday, Nov 6, at the Crowne Plaza Beverly Hills. Huge crowd! The international, national, and local news media attended in full force, including ABC, CNN, German TV (doing a documentary on cougars), Australian media, The London Times, etc. Tyana Alvarado won the title of Miss Cougar California. What a delightful cougar she is! You can see her photo on our website at www.cougarevents.com.
  • Michael Jackson Dance, Friday, Nov 6, at Poplar Creek Grill at Coyote Point Golf Course in San Mateo. Jim Spillane ran the party for us while we were in Beverly Hills. He reports a fun high-energy dance, with DJ Darryl K playing those great MJ hits and videos four hours straight!
  • Art & Wine Tasting Party, Saturday, Nov 7, at The Artists Alley in San Francisco. Nice turnout, delicious wines, and some great art!

Next week features 3 more parties:

  • Pier 39 Holiday Mixer, Tuesday, Nov 10, at a new restaurant for us, Swiss Louis, at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Promises to be a very nice party, as there is a terrific view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay, and Marin, plus 2 hours validated parking, and best of all tomorrow is the Veteran's Day Holiday!
  • Men in Black Dance, Lucky Friday the 13th of November, at Tarragon Restaurant in Sunnyvale. We have the giant upstairs banquet room, and hope to pack it, as we did a couple of years ago at the last Men in Black party we did at Tarragon. Optional Progressive Dinner (gentlemen change tables after each course) available.
  • Sadie Hawkins Eve Cougar Dance, Saturday, Nov 14, at Sinbad's in San Francisco. How appropriate to have a Cougar Dance on this night, as our cougars are encouraged to be assertive and ask men to dance. Men are NOT allowed to say NO!
