Singles Parties, January 17 - February 6, 2010

The party schedule has been so hectic, I haven't been able to update this blog. So here's the run down of our last 8 parties:
  • Marin Singles Convention, Friday, Jan 22, at Servino's in Tiburon. Jim Spillane ran this party while I was in Las Vegas producing the Cougar Convention (see below). Jim reports a big crowd and that everyone loved DJ Mike Keating of Grand Slam Mobile DJ. Kathleen Sims gave an entertaining talk prior to the dancing.
  • Las Vegas Cougar Convention, Friday, Jan 22, at The Tropicana. Big crowd. Lots of news media covered this event, including ABC's Nightline, French TV, Univision, Las Vegas Review-Journal, Fox TV, etc.
  • Winter Night Delight Dance, Saturday, Jan 23, at Dinah's Garden Hotel in Palo Alto. Barbara Millin of Singles Supper Club ran this one, and reports a very nice turnout and fun party.
  • East Bay Single Mingle, Friday, Jan 29, at the W Hotel in Newark. What a wonderful party space! The only complaint was the drinks were expensive. That's the price for attending a party at an upscale hotel. The rain cut down on our numbers, but it was fun anyway.
  • National Cub Convention, Saturday, Jan 30, at the Clarion SFO in Millbrae. Big crowd. Heavy news media coverage, including the San Mateo Times, which ran two big stories about us, reprinted by the San Jose Mercury News, Santa Cruz Sentinel, etc. KTVU Fox 2 TV also covered the convention. Congratulations to Eugene Lee, who won the title of Cutest Cub in America. His prize was a free berth on either of our upcoming Cougar Cruises, May 16-23 to the Mexican Riviera or Dec 3-6 to The Bahamas. Details at
  • Singles Night at the Marin Symphony, Tuesday, Feb 2, in San Rafael. The Marin Symphony generously provided a party just for our singles prior to the performance, with complimentary wines from Jacuzzi and great appetizers. The Marin Symphony sure know how to throw a party, as well as provide marvelous music!
  • Valentine Mixer, Thursday, Feb 4, at Frantoio in Mill Valley. Pretty good turnout despite the heavy rain.
  • Meet Your Valentine Convention, Saturday, Feb 6, at The Claremont in Berkeley. Terrific crowd, dance floor was packed all night. Susan Bradley gave a very entertaining talk, "Meet Your Valentine Tonight!" DJ Slick did a great job of mixing up the music.
I will be doing single conventions in Australia for the next two weeks, so I won't be able to attend my own upcoming parties. Those of you who do attend might want to add your comments to this blog so I can hear how these parties are doing in the Bay Area:
  • Valentine Dance, Friday, Feb 12, Hotel Sofitel in Redwood City. This is a lovely hotel and should be a great party.
  • Valentine Art & Wine Tasting Party, Saturday, Feb 13, Art People Gallery at Crocker Galleria in San Francisco. Our first party at this beautiful venue was so much fun, we're doing it again!
  • MidLife Valentines Day Mixer, Sunday, Feb 14, Marriott Hotel in Vallejo. Annie Gleason of Get a Love Life!, dating expert for the SF Examiner, will give a brief talk about MidLife dating. There will also be a Mixer Game and appetizers. The Vallejo Times Herald did a big feature story about Annie and this party, so expect a lot of new faces!
  • Mardi Gras Mixer, Tuesday, Feb 16, at the Walnut Creek Marriott. Fat Tuesday is always a great party theme.
  • Friday Night Fever Dance, Feb 19, at Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in San Rafael. DJ Darryl of Mobile Sound & Video will play the great hits of the past, with great videos, plus provide a free Saturday Night Fever Hustle Dance Lesson early in the evening.
  • Haiti Relief Singles Ball, Saturday, Feb 20, at David's in Santa Clara. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to Habitat for Humanity's rebuilding efforts in Haiti. The catastrophic earthquake reminds us how lucky we are here in the BayArea!
More details on our Website. See you at the parties!

Marin Singles Convention, Jan. 22:

Unless it was that high-octane house wine they were serving at Servino's, that gorgeous blonde "Patty" in the emerald green cocktail dress (whom I danced with once) was Hollywood actress Kirsten Dunst ([i]Spiderman 1-3[/i]), wasn't it ?? I believe so.
Never know who's going to show up at a Marin Singles Convention... ;)
