Singles Parties, October 7 - 29, 2011

HALLOWEEN is always the best theme for a singles party, so we did two of them, as we do every year. Both were very well attended and had great costumes and great energy! Congrats to all of our costume winners.

  • Oct 28 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in San Rafael

  • Oct 29 at Hyatt Regency Hotel in Burlingame
5 other parties this past month:

  • Champagne Social, Oct 7, at Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel in San Francisco. Good turnout, great view from the 31st Floor of this upscale hotel, thanks to the clear night.

  • Old School Dance, Oct 7, at W Hotel in Newark. Tough to get a big turnout when we compete against ourselves with another party on the same night! Decent turnout.

  • Interracial Dating Convention, Oct 14, at the San Mateo Marriott. Nobody has ever done one of these before, so we didn't know what to expect. Good turnout, lots of new faces.

  • Sonoma Wine Country Tasting & Party, Oct 16, at Keating Wines in Sonoma. Nice turnout, fun party.

  • Match Your Key Dance, Oct 21, at Neptune's at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Good turnout, clear night, terrific views!

NOVEMBER will be a busy month, with 9 fun parties!

  • Art & Wine Tasting Party, Friday, Nov 4, at Room Fine Art Gallery in San Rafael. Many of our singles have been complaining that we haven't done an art gallery wine tasting in many months, so here it is!

  • Golden Gate Yacht Club Dance, Saturday, Nov 5, in San Francisco. Normally we only two parties per year at this lovely venue, the Home of the America's Cup, but due to popular demand we are doing a third party at GGYC in 2011!

  • Champagne Social, Friday, Nov 11, at Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel in San Francisco. Our singles love this venue, so we are doing our third Champagne Party at this upscale hotel!

  • Sadie Hawkins Match Your Key Dance, Saturday, Nov 12, at the Crystal Ballroom at Hotel Shattuck Plaza. This is the one day of the year where women can go for what they want! Normally at these parties the men are given keys and seek out the right woman with the right lock. Tonight we reverse the rules. Should be fun!

  • Sadie Hawkins Day Mixer, Tuesday, Nov 15, at Hilltop 1892 in Novato. Sadie Hawkins comes every Nov 15 (not Feb 29), so we had to do a second Sadie-themed party. This is our annual party at this lovely historic restaurant, which is always well-attended.

  • Second Harvest Fundraiser Dance, Friday, Nov 18, at David's at Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club. All of the proceeds go to feeding the poor!

  • Singles Extravaganza, Saturday, Nov 19, at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. Our largest party of the Fall Season! Big crowd every year.

  • Single Millionaires Mixer, Tuesday, Nov 22, at Chevy's in Foster City. Our first two parties with this theme were well-attended, so we are doing a third. This time we are at Chevy's for the very first time!

  • Tri-Valley Singles Convention, Saturday, Nov 26, at the Pleasanton Marriott. We've neglected the San Ramon/Amador, Livermore valleys for a full year. We make up for it tonight!

Singles Parties, September 16 - October 1, 2011

7 singles parties over the past 3 weeks:

  • Blue Jean Ball, Friday, Sep 16, at Renaissance ClubSport Hotel in Walnut Creek. Good turnout. Some of the ladies had great blue jean outfits!

  • National Singles Week Celebration, Thursday, Sep 22, at First Street Cafe in Benicia. Not as large of a crowd as we usually get at our annual party at this nice restaurant.

  • Single Millionaires Dance, Saturday, Sep 24, at Sinbad's in San Francisco. Good turnout for our first ever dance with this theme. We are exploring the possibility of doing a Single Millionaires Cruise. Anyone interested? Where would you want the cruise to go?

  • Fall Night Delight, Thursday, Sep 29, at Number One Broadway in Los Gatos. Ok turnout, but not as big as usual due to our scheduling of another event in nearby Palo Alto for the following night.

  • SinglesFest, Friday, Sep 30, at Club Illusions in Palo Alto. Nice turnout. This was a last minute party we scheduled only because of the late invitation by the nightclub manager. Would not have scheduled the party, since we already had a Silicon Valley party on the previous (Thursday) night, but didn't want to let the opportunity pass us by to do a party at the Silicon Valley's premiere nightclub! These opportunities don't come every day.

  • Salsa Dance, Saturday, Oct 1st, at Tatami Multi Arts in El Cerrito. My friend Joel Koosed of The Meeting Game asked me to promote this party for him. He wanted some new blood. Apparently our singles are not that crazy about salsa, because it was a poor turnout. I guess our singles preferred our 90s party on the same night (see below).

  • 90s Dance, Saturday, Oct 1st, at Embassy Suites Hotel in San Rafael. Great party! Loved those terrific hits from the 90s. Definitely will do this theme again. One lady emailed me asking "Are we already getting nostalgic about the 90s? Guess so.


  • Old School Dance, Friday, Oct 7, at the W Hotel in Newark. The hits of the 60s, 70s, and 80s are a popular radio format nowadays, so we decided to devote an entire evening to them!

  • Champagne Social, Friday, Oct 7, at the Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel in San Francisco. Here we go again, two parties again on the same night. One of my rules is to schedule at least one dance party every weekend of the year. I just couldn't get a good location for a party on Saturday night this weekend (October is a big month for the hotels), so I had to schedule two Friday night parties this weekend.

  • Interracial Dating Convention, Friday, Oct 14, at the San Mateo Marriott. This is America's first. Should be fun!

  • Sonoma Wine Country Party & Tasting, Sunday, Oct 16, at Keating Wines in Sonoma. Nice venue for a party. Only $10 includes wine tasting and appetizers!

  • Match Your Key Dance, Friday, Oct 21, at Neptune's at Pier 39. We did three parties earlier in the year at this wonderful location, with spectacular views. Couldn't get the venue during the Summer, because that is their busy season with tourists.

  • 2 Halloween Costume Parties & Dances, Friday, Oct 28 at Embassy Suites Hotel San Rafael; and Saturday, Oct 29, at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame. Our Halloween parties are always our best parties of the year, so we always do two on the Friday and Saturday before Halloween. The theme attracts a big crowd.
