Singles Parties, February 11 - 19, 2011

Our Valentine's Dance, Friday, Feb 11, at Michael's at Shoreline Park, attracted a huge crowd. Laura Lane of Singles Supper Club, our co-sponsor, ran the party, as Debby and I were producing the Meet Your Cougar Valentine Convention on Saturday, Feb 12 in Costa Mesa. The convention was covered by the Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, and Orange County Weekly. It's rare to have three major newspapers cover a singles event, so we were most pleased.

Jim Spillane ran our Valentines Day Mixer, Monday, Feb 14, at the Flamingo Resort Hotel in Santa Rosa (while Debby and I celebrated V-Day at Yosemite--it was gorgeous, and we beat the rain and snow!) Jim reports a fun group that mostly stayed after our mixer was officially over, to enjoy karake and dancing with DJ Bobby. Lots of new faces.

Also on Valentine's Day, the Contra Costa Times and many of its affiliated daily newspapers ran a front page story about our singles parties. Great publicity!

Will it ever stop raining? Yes, I know we need the water, but why did it have to come down, seemingly in buckets, during our Puma Party on Friday, Feb 18, at Neptune's at Pier 39 in San Francisco? Congratulations to Nancy Peccorini of Foster City, who was crowned the first-ever Miss Bay Area Puma. She won a free week at Hedonism II Resort & Spa in Jamaica during International Cougar Week, March 27 - April 2.

Our Match Your Key Dance on Saturday, Feb 19, at Intramuros in South San Francisco was a great party. Our singles loved the ambience of this fun nightclub, and the giant screen to view some terrific music videos! We will do another party at Intramuros, this time for our Young Single Professionals, on Saturday, March 19.

  • Annual Advanced Degrees Mixer, Thursday, Feb 24, at Bay Cafe at Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course. Here's your chance to meet single professionals with a Doctorate or Masters Degree!
  • Singles Black & White Ball, Saturday, Feb 26, at Ondine in Sausalito. This spectacular restaurant, with sweeping views of the SF Skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, and the Bay, is finally a venue for our most elegant event of 2011!
  • Petaluma Waterfront Mixer, Tuesday, March 1, at the Sheraton Hotel at the Petaluma Marina.
  • Golden Gate Yacht Club Dance, Saturday, March 5, in San Francisco. Only $20 this time, minus the buffet. One of our most popular venues, twice a year.
  • Welcome Spring Dance, Saturday, March 12, W Hotel in Newark. We hope the beautiful spring weather will appear by March 12!
  • Match Your Key Dance, Friday, March 18, Crowne Plaza Hotel in Concord.

Singles Parties, January 28 - February 5, 2011

5 parties over the past two weeks:
  • Solano Singles Convention, Friday, Jan 28, at the Marriott Hotel in Vallejo. Disappointing turnout, maybe everyone was waiting for the big one in the East Bay the following Friday...
  • Cougar Valentine Party, Saturday, Jan 29, at 111 Minna in San Francisco. Fun venue! The San Francisco Weekly covered the party and featured photos on their website.
  • MidLife Valentine Mixer, Tuesday, Feb 1, at Ristorante La Toscana in San Rafael. Nice turnout, featuring SF Examiner Dating expert Annie Gleason.
  • Meet Your Valentine Convention, Friday, Feb 4, at the Claremont Resort Hotel in Berkeley. Excellent crowd. They enjoyed our Keynote Speaker, author Tana Marie, on "How to Meet Your Valentine in 2011."
  • Valentine Art & Wine Tasting Party, Saturday, Feb 5, at The Artists Alley in San Francisco. Lots of new faces at this fun art gallery!
We have two more Meet Your Valentine parties:
  • Valentine Dance, Friday, Feb 11, at Michael's at Shoreline Park in Mountain View. Co-sponsored with Singles Supper Club. Should be an excellent turnout, as it is our only party over Valentine's Weekend.
  • Valentines Day Mixer, Monday, Feb 14, at The Flamingo Resort Hotel in Santa Rosa. Should be plenty of new faces, as the party is featured on KSRO Radio.
We are proud to present The World's First Puma Party, for Cougars-in-Training, Friday, Feb 18, at Neptune's at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Lovely views of the Golden Gate Bridge and The Bay! If you miss the party, KPIX TV 5's Eye on the Bay will be featuring us. Party details at

Our next Match Your Key Dance is on Saturday, Feb 19, at Intramuros in South San Francisco. We look forward to our first party at this large nightclub!
