Singles Parties, February 12 - 20, 2010

Just got back from Australia, producing Cougar Conventions in the three largest cities: Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. Terrific turnouts, friendly people, and massive media coverage! More info.

While I was away, the show went on at our six singles parties in the SF Bay Area:
  • Valentine Dance, Friday, Feb 12, at Hotel Sofitel Redwood City. We were happy to return to this lovely hotel after a long hiatus. Barbara Millin of Singles Supper Club, who ran the party, reports a fairly large crowd, considering that we were competing that night with two large singles dances in the area.
  • Valentine Art & Wine Tasting Party, Saturday, Feb 13, at Art People Gallery at the Crocker Galleria in San Francisco. Usually we have a decline in attendance the second time we do a party at the same location, but we broke that trend with a larger crowd than last time! Guess our singles really like this beautiful art gallery! We hope to do another here soon. Patrick of Wine Socials ran this party, with Ida's help.
  • MidLife Singles Valentines Day Mixer, Sunday, Feb 14, at the Marriott Hotel Vallejo. Jim Spillane, who ran this party, reports a decent turnout and a fun party.
  • Mardi Gras Mixer, Tuesday, Feb 16, at the Walnut Creek Marriott. Ida, who ran this party, says it went well. But the attendance was less than we usually get at this popular hotel. Guess the Mardi Gras theme wasn't a big draw. Surprise.
  • Friday Night Fever Dance, Feb 19, at Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in San Rafael. Jim Spillane reports a good turnout and fun party, with DJ Darryl K spinning his usual magic!
  • Haiti Relief Singles Ball, Saturday, Feb 20, at David's Restaurant in Santa Clara. Barbara Millin reports a huge crowd! 100% of your tax-deductible donations went directly to Habitat for Humanity, to help rebuild Haiti after the disastrous earthquake. Thanks to all of you for helping us raise over $6,000! Many thanks to our co-sponsors: Stanford Bachelors, Singles Supper Club, Wine Socials,,, Your Asian Connection, Apres Ski Club, Get a Love Life!, Rusty Bindings Ski Club, etc. Also thank you to all who donated prizes, including Fred Astaire Dance Studios (San Jose), Studio Joule (Los Gatos), Artisian Wine Depot (Mountain View), Michi Sushi (Campbell), Ultimate Potential (Los Gatos), Laser Medi-Spa Services, Bliss Therapeutic Massage (Willow Glen), Facials by Lori (Willow Glen), Lion and Compass Restaurant (Sunnyvale), which will host an upcoming singles party soon, Get a Love Life!, and last but not least, David's Restaurant. David donated the space and the appetizers. Thanks, David! If you enjoy our singles charity balls, be on the lookout for the next one at the Westin St Francis Hotel on Union Square in SF, benefiting The Seva Foundation, coming soon!
This coming weekend features 3 more great parties:
  • Cougar Mixer, Thursday, Feb 25, at Last Day Saloon in Santa Rosa. This is our first-ever cougar party in Sonoma County!
  • Match Your Key Dance, Friday, Feb 26, at WPLJ's in Walnut Creek. This night club is always popular with singles. I've been there several times and always thought it would be a great place for a singles party. We are delighted to finally have one at this venue!
  • Solid Gold Dance, Saturday, Feb 27, at Sinbad's in San Francisco. Popular DJ Miguel of Startracks will play nothing but golden records, every song a million-seller from the past!
