Singles Parties, December 17 - 19, 2009

3 Christmas Parties this past week, all well-attended:
  • Thursday, Dec 17, Last Day Saloon, Santa Rosa. At our first-ever party, our singles took over the lounge area of this giant nightclub prior to the Bob Schneider Concert. Good appetizers! We will do this venue again.
  • Friday, Dec 18, Clarion Hotel SFO, Millbrae. Thank you, Gutier Alpacas, who sent Twinkles, a sweet alpaca dressed as a reindeer, plus two elves, to entertain our singles! Alpacas are smaller versions of llamas, from South America. Twinkles couldn't stay for the whole party, as she overheated. But we sure enjoyed her company while it lasted!
  • Saturday, Dec 19, Art People at The Crocker Galleria, San Francisco. Even though I'm a native-born San Franciscan, I had never been to The Galleria. What a lovely shopping complex! Art People's gallery was the perfect venue for a classy art & wine tasting party, with an excellent pianist performing our favorite holiday tunes! We hope to do another party at this gallery, hopefully around Valentines Day.

3 New Years Eve parties coming up:

  • Pre-New Years Eve Party, Saturday, December 26, at San Francisco's most famous hotel, The Westin St Francis on Union Square. We are in the spectacular Colonial Ballroom, with 24 foot high ceilings and balcony, plus gorgeous chandeliers. A special note to women: Come early, before the dancing starts, for a free seminar by myself on "Meet Good Men in 2010." You will also receive a free copy of A Good Man Is EASY to Find (the book Oprah held up on nationwide TV and said, "This is a great book!") Plus a MONEYBACK GUARANTEE: You will meet good men in 2010 or receive a 100% refund of the cost of attending the dance party at 9pm, provided you follow at least half of my Top 10 Suggestions for meeting good men.
  • SF Peninsula New Years Eve Bash, Thursday, Dec 31, at the Sheraton Palo Alto. This is the big one, with TWO ballrooms. One ballroom features a DJ playing the greatest songs of the past. The other ballroom, for those with younger taste in music, features today's hottest hits. You are free to enjoy both ballrooms, as no one will be asking your age.
  • North Bay New Years Eve Bash, Thursday, Dec 31, at the Embassy Suites San Rafael. Once again DJ Darryl K will be spinning his musical magic, with great music videos!

Singles Parties, November 25 - December 8, 2009

6 parties over the last two weeks:
  • Thanksgiving Eve Mixer, Wednesday, Nov 25, at MacArthur Park in Palo Alto. Nice turnout at our first-ever party at this lovely restaurant. We hope to do it again next year!
  • Thanksgiving Dance, Saturday, Nov 28, at the Pleasanton Marriott. Great party!
  • Sausalito Holiday Mixer, Tuesday, Dec 1, at Wellington's Wine Bar. Always a great turnout at our annual Sausalito holiday party.
  • Holiday Dance, Saturday, Dec 5, at Lion & Compass in Sunnyvale. Barbara Millin of Singles Supper Club, who co-sponsored the party with us, reports that it was a great party, but not as large of a turnout as usual.
  • MidLife Singles Mixer, Sunday, Dec 6, at 5A5 Steak Lounge in San Francisco. Odd name for a restaurant, but we are sure glad we did our first party at this very attractive restaurant. Great appetizers. Annie Gleason of Get a Love Life!, the SF Examiner's dating expert, gave a brief entertaining talk on MidLife Dating. Definitely will do this venue again.
  • Holiday Lock & Key, Tuesday, Dec 8, at Faz Restaurant in Danville. Not as big of a crowd as when we do our weekend Lock & Key dances, but a fun, enthusiaastic group of singles. Next month's Lock & Key (Jan 9) will include dancing at Fuz, a new restaurant that just opened up in Lafayette.

Our Wine Tasting & Dance Party in Walnut Creek, scheduled for Saturday, Dec 12, was cancelled by the venue. That means our singles will have an unusual weekend without a dance party for singles. Sorry, wasn't our choice.

We'll try to make it up to over the next holiday weekend, with three fun parties:

  • North Bay Mixer, Thursday, Dec 17, at a new location for us, Last Day Saloon in Downtown Santa Rosa. After our mixer at 7pm our singles are invited to stay for the Bob Schneider Concert, at a discounted price.
  • Christmas Dance, Friday, Dec 18, at the Clarion Hotel SFO in Millbrae. This should be our largest dance of the Christmas season, in a lovely hotel ballroom.
  • Christmas Art & Wine Tasting Party, Saturday, Dec 19, at Art People Gallery at Crocker Galleria, in Downtown San Francisco. Always a huge crowd on the last Saturday before Christmas at our annual Art & Wine Tasting. We're excited to be doing this beautiful gallery for the first time!
