Singles Parties, December 17-19, 2010

Despite the big storm, we had 3 fun parties, with good attendance:
  • Christmas Dance, Friday, Dec 17, at Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley. DJ Darryl K brought his popular videos of the songs we all love. Fun dance party in the elegance of The Crystal Ballroom.
  • Christmas Art & Wine Party, Saturday, Dec 18, at The Artists Alley in San Francisco. The four wines I tasted were all top-notch. Lots of new, attractive faces at this party.
  • Sausalito Waterfront Mixer, Sunday, Dec 19, at Wellington's Wine Bar. We didn't have the gorgeous weather we had at last year's party, so the view was not stupendous. But it was a fun crowd that mingled well with each other.
Next week we have a monopoly. The only singles party in the Bay Area I've come across is our Eve of Christmas Eve Match Your Key Dance at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Concord. It's been a while since we've done a party at this hotel, because they were converting our usual party room into the Contra Costa Ballroom. We can't wait to see what it looks like! Since the next day is a holiday for most people (since Christmas falls on a Saturday, Friday is the legal holiday), so expect a big crowd on the Thursday before Christmas.

We celebrate 2011 with three parties the following weekend:
  • Pre-New Years Eve Dance, Thursday, December 30, at Neptune's Restaurant at Pier 39 in San Francisco. This is a new location for us, with a terrific view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin, and the Bay. As with last Thursday, Friday is a holiday, since New Years Day falls on a Saturday, so should attract a good crowd.
  • New Years Eve Bash - Silicon Valley, Friday, December 31, at the Sheraton Palo Alto. Last year's bash at this hotel attracted 400. We're hoping for another huge crowd!
  • New Years Eve Bash - North Bay, Friday, December 31, at the Embassy Suites San Rafael. Last year's bash at this hotel went great and we expect nothing less this year.

Singles Parties, November 30 - December 10, 2010

4 parties over the past two weeks in the SF Bay Area:
  • Cougar Holiday Mixer, Tuesday, Nov 30, at the Walnut Creek Marriott. Good turnout, lots of new faces. Amy Luna, the newly crowned Miss Cougar California, gave an excellent, no-holds barred presentation on "Cougar Sex & Dating."
  • Holiday Dance, Friday, Dec 3, at the Clarion Hotel SFO in Millbrae. While Debby and I were hosting the Miami Cougar Convention and Cougar Cruise to the Bahamas, Jim Spillane reports that our dance here in the Bay Area was well-attended and lots of fun. The Miami Cougar Cougar Convention received massive media coverage, including a brief segment on NBC's Today Show. The Cougar Cruise was well-attended (127 cougars and cubs) and high-spirited! Next Cougar Cruise will be in April on the Mediterranean. Next major cougar event will be International Cougar Week, March 27 - April 2, at Hedonism II in Jamaica! Details about all of our cougar events and cruises on our WEBSITE.
  • Young Single Professionals Holiday Mixer & Dance, Friday, Dec 10, at Kaama in San Jose. Laura Lane of Singles Supper Club reports a big crowd attended!
  • North Bay Holiday Mixer & Dance, Friday, Dec 10, at Kodiak Jacks at 256 North Events Center in Petaluma. Decent turnout, delicious appetizers, fun dance lesson. Surprisingly, only one person won our Mixer Game and was awarded a free copy of my book, A Good Man Is EASY to Find. Usually we have several winners. Alas, the mechanical bull at this fun County & Western Saloon was on holiday.
This coming weekend features three more parties:
  • Christmas Dance, Friday, Dec 17, at the lovely Crystal Ballroom of Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley. Should be well-attended, as always, with our annual Christmas Dance.
  • Christmas Art & Wine Tasting Party, Saturday, Dec 18, at The Artists Alley in San Francisco. This is always our largest wine tasting party of the year! Be prepared for a packed crowd, as we are advertising on three radio stations: KOIT, KDFC, and The Wolf.
  • Sausalito Waterfront Mixer, Saturday, Dec 19, at Wellington's Wine Bar in Sausalito. If the weather cooperates, we will have a stunning view. This is a very large venue, which is appropriate, since our annual Sausalito Christmas Mixer always draws a big crowd!
