Singles Parties, November 22 - December 31, 2011

We ended 2011 with a bang, celebrating at 3 New Years Eve parties:

  • Pre-New Years Eve Dance, Friday, Dec 30, at Sheraton Palo Alto. Huge crowd. We wanted to repeat our NYE party on Dec 31 at this nice venue, but they were already booked for NYE. So we did the next best thing: a pre-NYE party. Good move.

  • North Bay New Years Eve Bash, Saturday, Dec 31, at the Flamingo Santa Rosa. Jim Spillane ran this party for us, as I was busy running the San Francisco NYE Bash (see below). Good turnout.

  • San Francisco New Years Eve Bash, Saturday, Dec, at Neptune's at Pier 39. Good turnout, especially for the optional Progressive Dinner that preceded the dancing. Great party, with DJ HickeyB! spinning our favorite hits.

OTHER PARTIES during this time period:

  • Single Millionaires Party, Tuesday, Nov 22, at Chevy's in Foster City. Not as big of a turnout as we usually get at our millionaires parties, but everyone enjoyed our speaker, Allen Hamm, on How Millionaires Get There and Stay There. Good appetizers from Chevy's.

  • Tri-Valley Singles Convention, Saturday, Nov 26, at the Pleasanton Marriott. Big crowd.

  • SF Holiday Dance, Friday, Dec 2, at the world-famous Hard Rock Cafe (at Pier 39 in San Francisco). Ok turnout, not as big as expected.

  • North Bay Holiday Party, Saturday, Dec 3, at Kodiak Jacks in Petaluma. Decent turnout.

  • Young Single Professionals Holiday Party, Thursday, at Roux Louisiana Kitchen at Santana Row in San Jose. Disappointing turnout, despite nice location, free parking, appetizers, dancing, only $10 admission. Don't know why we didn't attract a larger crowd...

  • Holiday Match Your Key Dance, Friday, Dec 9, at Hyatt Regency Hotel Burlingame. Good turnout. Lovely ballroom.

  • Marin Holiday Dance, Saturday, Dec 10, at Nourish at Harbor Point, Mill Valley. Big crowd, great party. Harbor Point used to be THE place to meet singles, especially with the Pacific Sun doing several singles parties per year. When The Sun stopped the parties, everyone forgot about this lovely waterfront location. We hope to do more parties here!

  • Marin Christmas Dance, Friday, December 16, at Embassy Suites Hotel San Rafael. Surprisingly good turnout, since we did a dance in Marin just 6 days earlier (see above).

  • Christmas Art & Wine Tasting Party, Saturday, Dec 17, at Nieto Fine Art Gallery near Union Square in San Francisco. Beautiful new venue! Nice turnout.

  • Benicia Yacht Club Christmas Dance, Friday, Dec 23. Our first-time at this great waterfront venue! Quite a turnout! Hope to do this yacht club again soon in the New Year.

  • East Bay's first-ever Single Millionaires Party, Thursday, Dec 29, at EBGB The Underground Bar at Montes. Despite the location in West Oakland, big turnout and great party. Most people stayed after the official end of the party, they were having so much fun! Beautiful interior. Some people didn't come because they are afraid of West Oakland, but it was a safe neighborhood and we have been invited back.

JANUARY is always a big month for singles parties, since the #1 New Years Resolution singles have (other than losing weight) is finding a romantic partner. We have just the lineup of parties you need to fulfill that resolution!

  • Marin Singles Convention, Friday, Jan 6, at Servino's Ristorante in Tiburon. Always a huge crowd at this, the largest gathering of romantic eligibles each year in Marin Special treat this year: author Susan Bradley reveals How to Find Drama-Free Love in 2012, followed by Dance Party, with spectacular view of the SF Skyline and Bay!

  • Wine Tasting & Dance Party, Saturday, Jan 7, at Redux, Walnut Creek's hottest nightclub.

  • Beyond Demi & Ashton: The Future of Cougar Relationships Party, Thursday, Jan 12, at Bay Cafe at Palo Alto Golf Course. It's been a while since our last cougar party, so we are overdue!

  • Napa Valley Singles Convention, Friday, Jan 13, at Silo's at the historic Napa Mill. This will be the largest gathering of singles in the Napa area for 2012. Very nice nightclub along the Napa River! Author Jeannine Kaiser will give an entertaining talk, followed by dancing.

  • Lucky Friday the 13th Dance at Los Gatos Lodge. It will be your lucky day if you attend this party at a lovely venue.

  • Winter Night Delight, Saturday, Jan 14, at Grosvenor Hotel (Best Western) in South San Francisco. Several years since we have done a party at this well-located hotel right off Hwy 101.

  • An Elegant Evening at the Fairmont, Saturday, Jan 21, in San Francisco. First-ever singles party at this world-renowned hotel! We are in the Gold Ballroom, with spectacular chandeliers and view of the Bay. Dance to your favorite hits.
