Singles Parties, March 11 - 26, 2011

Treading water is not fun. That's what it feels like, with so many of our parties happening on cold rainy nights when anyone with any sense would just stay home. Many of our singles like to plan ahead and invite their friends to accompany them to the parties. Since the meteorologist is usually projecting rain, even when the rain DOESN'T materialize, the damage is still done. People don't call their friends, the word doesn't get around, and attendance suffers.

Despite all this, most of our parties during one of the wettest rainy seasons in 20 years have attracted decent crowds. When the sun finally comes out for good, we expect a lot of our singles to return in large numbers!

Our most popular party during this wet period was our annual Silicon Valley Singles Convention on Friday, March 25. We chose a new venue, the spectacular Corinthian Grand Ballroom in San Jose. Normally I shy away from doing parties in downtown San Jose, which many people shy away from, for some reason... I don't know why, as there is lots of free street parking in the evenings, after all the businesses close. In this particular case, we had a huge turnout and people loved this spectacular venue. You have to see it to believe it. We hope to do more parties at the Corinthian.

Other parties include:
  • Young Single Professionals Dance, Friday, March 11, at Intramuros in South San Francisco. Terrible turnout.
  • Welcome Spring Dance, Saturday, March 12, at W Hotel in Newark. Nice turnout, fun party. We return to the W on Wednesday, May 25 (kicking off the Memorial Day Weekend a couple of days early).
  • St Patricks Day Dance, Thursday, March 17, at Azul in San Francisco was poorly attended.
  • Match Your Key Dance, Friday, March 18, at the Crowne Plaza Concord had a decent turnout and a fun party.
  • Spring Mixer, Monday, March 21, at Sapore Italiano in Burlingame. Decent crowd for a Monday night.
  • Spring Night Delight Dance, Saturday, March 26, at Embassy Suites San Rafael. As always, DJ Darryl K did masterful job of playing our favorite songs and videos! Fun party.
  • April Fools Day Dance, Friday, April 1, at DoubleTree Hotel SFO in Burlingame. This is NO April Fools joke! Please come and party with us.
  • Art & Wine Tasting Party, Saturday, April 2, at Show Place Art Gallery in Berkeley. Our singles really enjoyed our first party (January) at this very large gallery!
  • Sausalito Single Mingle, Tuesday, April 5, at The Spinnaker. Always a big crowd at this beautiful waterfront restaurant!
  • Match Your Key Dance, Friday, April 8, at Neptune's at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Spectacular view, FREE validated parking at Pier 39! Need we say more?
  • Monterey Bay Flirting Contest & Dance, Saturday, April 9, at The Hippodrome, across from the Monterey Convention Center. The county's largest nightclub is the perfect venue for crowning Mr & Miss Monterey Bay Flirt! You can compete for the title or just sit back and laugh!
  • An Elegant Evening at Ondine, Friday, April 15, Sausalito, at the Bay Area's most romantic party venue! Our party last month was very well-attended and everyone asked when we were doing it again. Here you go!
  • Japan Quake Relief Fundraiser, Saturday, April 16, at Club Illusions in Palo Alto. A huge crowd is expected!
  • Art & Wine Tasting Party, Friday, April 22, at a new venue for us, Shawna Stoney in San Francisco's Potrero District.
  • Easter Dance, Saturday, April 23, at the Crystal Ballroom at Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley. What a lovely venue to celebrate Easter!
  • Silicon Valley Singles Weekend, March 29-30, at the Sheraton Palo Alto. For the first time we are doing back to back parties, at the same hotel! Friday night is for Young Single Professionals and Saturday night for our Baby Boomers. Choose one for Dinner and Dancing!
