Singles Parties, September 1 - 10, 2011

5 singles parties over the past 2 weeks:

  • Salsa Mixer & Dance, Thursday, Sep 1, at Cafe Cocomo in San Francisco. Smaller turnout than usual for our annual Salsa Party. Possibly because we had another SF party the next night and our singles didn't want to attend both, so they chose the Friday party instead of the Thursday party...

  • Champagne Social, Friday, Sep 2, at Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel in San Francisco. Good turnout for the first of what we hope will be a monthly First Friday Social at this lovely hotel, with spectacular views from the 31st Floor Club Room. Alas, the view was NOT spectacular tonight, as it was a very foggy evening. Hopefully the view will be better at our next Champagne Social, Friday, Oct 7.

  • Name Your Price Dance, Sunday, Sep 4, at Pasta Pelican in Alameda. Big crowd. Not surprising, since it was our first-ever Name Your Price Dance. It was great to have our singles who have been hardest hit by the bad economy at the party, as well as our more prosperous singles! Great party.

  • Match Your Key Dance, Friday, Sep 9, at David's at Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club. Nice turnout.

  • Demi vs Madonna Cougar Party, Saturday, Sep 10, at 111 Minna Gallery & Nightclub in San Francisco. Good turnout, and everyone had fun with deciding whether they preferred Demi or Madonna. Unfortunately the wall separating our party from the larger party on the other side was opened at 10pm, as was promised to me, so we were without a Live DJ (we could hear from the other side, but couldn't see him), so I wound up hiring a DJ on the spot and he was able to get the dancing to Live DJ going shortly after 10pm. Sorry about that.


  • Blue Jean Ball, Friday, Sep 16, at Renaissance ClubSport Hotel in Walnut Creek. Should be a big crowd, since we are only doing one party this week (instead of the three we did the previous week). Our singles love to show off their best pair of blue jeans at this fun dance party at an upscale hotel!

  • National Singles Week Celebration, Thursday, Sep 22, at First Street Cafe in Benicia. We are the official sponsor of National Singles Week each year throughout America, and our annual celebration is always fun.

  • Singles Dance with Millionaires, Saturday, Sep 24, at Sinbad's in San Francisco. Last month's Single Millionaires Mixer was extremely well-attended (on a Thursday night!), so we expect quite a crowd for the first-ever Single Millionaires DANCE, on a Saturday night!

  • Fall Night Delight Mixer & Live Band Dance, Thursday, Sep 29, at Number One Broadway Nightclub in Los Gatos. It's been quite a while since our last party at this fun nightclub, so we are hoping for a great turnout, especially since The Second Story Band will play many of our favorite classic hits!

  • 90s Dance, Saturday, Oct 1, at Embassy Suites San Rafael. We've done 60s Dances, 70s Dances, and 80s Dances. It's about time that we do our first dance featuring the great hits of the 1990s!

  • Salsa Dance & Lesson, also on Saturday, Oct 1, at Tatami Multi-Arts in El Cerrito. It is extremely rare for us to do two dances on the same night, but my friend Joel Koosed of The Meeting Game asked me to co-sponsor. I thought our East Bay Singles would enjoy our first-ever Salsa party on their side of the Bay!

  • Champagne Social, Friday, Oct 7, at Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel in San Francisco.

  • Sonoma Wine Country Tasting & Mixer, Sunday, Oct 16, at Keating Wines in Sonoma.


See you at the parties!
