Singles Parties, November 19 - 27, 2010

4 parties over the past two weeks:
  • Taxi Dance, Friday, November 19, at the Hilton Oakland Airport. Small turnout, due to rain and lots of accidents on the freeways causing heavy backups. But I still think the crowd should have been larger. Perhaps our singles didn't like the theme, Ladies Get Paid a Dime a Dance? I thought it was a cute theme.
  • California Cougar Convention, Saturday, November 20, at The Standard in Fresno. Fun event, lots of news coverage. We were on NBC's Today Show on Monday, Nov 15. Congrats to Amy Luna, Miss Cougar East Bay, who was crowned Miss Cougar California at the convention. She won a free vacation at Hedonism II in Jamaica during International Cougar Week, March 27 - April 2, 2011.
  • Sausalito Waterfront Single Mingle, Tuesday, November 23, at The Spinnaker. Great party, as always, at this wonderful location. It was a clear night, so we had a spectacular view of San Francisco and the Bay!
  • Thanksgiving Match Your Key Dance, Saturday, November 27, at David's Restaurant at the Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club. Nice turnout, as is always the case with our annual Thanksgiving party.
Next week features two more parties:
  • Cougar Holiday Mixer, Tuesday, Nov 30, at the Walnut Creek Marriott. Amy Luna, Miss Cougar California (see above) will give an exciting talk about "Cougar Sex & Dating. "We will also have a fun Mixer Game, prizes, and appetizers. Should be a fun night!
  • Holiday Dance, Friday, Dec 3, at the Clarion SFO in Millbrae. Our annual SF Peninsula Holiday Dance always draws a crowd.

Singles Parties, November 9 - 13, 2010

Our Singles Mixer at Hilltop 1892 in Novato on Tuesday, November 9 was a great way to celebrate the Grand Opening (Reopening) of this lovely historic restaurant. We enjoyed so many great parties in the past when the restaurant was known as The Hilltop Cafe. Tonight's party went well, despite a little rain and a shortage of parking. We look forward to many more.

Our annual Singles Extravaganza, Saturday, November 13, at the Westin St Francis Hotel on Union Square in San Francisco lived up to its billing! Great turnout, high energy dance party. Marc Rudov, our Keynote Speaker, did not disappoint those who were expecting a controversial, memorable address! We warned everyone that Marc was politically INCORRECT and that his views would offend some. The vast majority were willing to listen politely, many agreed with him, some asked questions or challenged him, and a few walked out. You can see why, after scheduling hundreds of speakers over the past 32 years at our singles events, that we regard Marc to be our most controversial speaker ever, by visiting his WEBSITE.

Next week features two more fun parties:
  • Taxi Dance, Friday, Nov 19, at the Hilton Oakland Airport. Taxi Dancing originated in the Bay Area in the 1920s and spread rapidly throughout the nation. Women get paid paid a dime a dance!
  • 2nd Annual California Cougar Convention, Saturday, Nov 20, at The Standard in Fresno. We will crown Miss Cougar California 2010, who will win a free room at Hedonism II Resort & Spa in Jamaica during International Cougar Week. Last year's winner, Tyana Alvarado, was featured this year on Donald Trump's Apprentice TV Show.

Singles Parties, October 26 - November 6, 2010

6 parties over the past 2 weeks:
  • Singles Mixer at Historic Pleasanton Hotel, Tuesday, Oct 26. We are happy to see this local landmark has reopened, so we can do more parties in downtown Pleasanton! Lots of new faces at this one.
  • Halloween Costume Party & Dance, Friday, Oct 29, at Hotel Sofitel in Redwood City. Huge turnout! Great costumes!
  • Halloween Costume Party & Dance, Saturday, Oct 30, at Embassy Suites Hotel in San Rafael. Not as big of a crowd, but a fun party nevertheless.
  • MidLife Singles Mixer & Dance, Thursday, Nov 4, at Azul in San Francisco. We are happy to see this wonderful location has reopened, so we can continue doing our parties. Nice turnout. Annie Gleason of Get a Love Life! gave free 3 minute dating consultations.
  • SF Giants Victory Dance, Friday, Nov 5, at Sinbad's in San Francisco. Normally we would not do two singles dances in San Francisco on consecutive days, but the MidLife party on Thursday night had already been promoted when the Giants won the World Series, so we had our celebration the following night.
  • Wine Tasting & Dance, Saturday, Nov 6, at Redux Nightclub in Walnut Creek. Nice turnout, great wines!
Next week features two more events:
  • Grand Reopening Party at Historic Hilltop 1892 Restaurant in Novato, Tuesday, Nov 9. We were so disappointed when this landmark restaurant closed a few years ago, since it has always been a popular venue for our singles mixers. The restaurant has been completely renovated and is gorgeous!
  • Singles Extravaganza, Saturday, Nov 13, at the Westin St Francis Hotel on Union Square in San Francisco. This huge annual event has a controversial author giving the Keynote Address, followed by a giant Dance Party.
