Singles Parties, August 16 - September 1, 2013

Our two Labor Day Weekend Parties were very well-attended. I love 3 day holiday weekends. Nobody runs singles parties then, because they figure that everyone is out of town. Not true! We always get a great crowd over Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Weekend, and President's Day. Our two parties were Friday, Aug 30, at the Pleasanton Marriott and Saturday, Sep 1, at Silo's a the historic Napa River Inn, Lots of new faces and great dance music!

I took two weeks off from running parties, since August is always a slow party month. We had two other parties during this period:
  • Progressive Dinner Dance, Friday, Aug 16, at Tarragon in Sunnyvale. Laura Lane of Singles Supper Club sponsored this one and asked my help in promoting. We expected a huge crowd, but unfortunately not as many came as we had hoped for. We've done very well at this venue in the past, so hope this was just an anomaly.
  • Single Professionals Networking Social, Thursday, Aug 22, at Alibi Lounge in San Francisco. Nice turnout. The only complaint was that the DJ played the music two loudly. We eventually got him to lower the volume. Since the nightclub hired the DJ we had limited influence on the music (he who pays the piper calls the tune). That's why I prefer parties where I pay the DJ.
September will be a big month for parties:
  • Astrology Match Party, Friday, Sep 6, at Illusions Super Club in Palo Alto. Sadly this wonderful nightclub is closing down soon, so this will be our last party at Illusions. We'll miss it! We are co-sponsoring this party with Singles Supper Club and Your Asian Connection.
  • Online Dating Expo, Saturday, Sep 7, at DoubleTree Hotel SFO. We have lots of co-sponsors for this one. Co-Authors John and Loretta Gavin, who met online, are delivering the Keynote Address, with the provocative title: Online Dating Sucks... But It's How I Fell in Love. Dance Party follows.
  • National Singles Week Kickoff Dance, Saturday, Sep 14, at Nourish at Harbor Point, in Mill Valley. Lovely waterfront location. The site of so many great singles parties in the past!
  • Speed Dating Convention, Saturday, Sep 14, at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Four 2 hours sessions of speed dating, for four different groups, by ethnicity, education, or age. This is the largest speed dating event of 2013 in the Bay Area! Co-sponsored with Singles Supper Club and Your Asian Connection.
  • Fall Night Delight Dance, Friday, Sep 20, at Dragon 2000 in Walnut Creek. This is a new location for singles parties!
  • American Sugar Daddy Convention. Saturday, Sep 21, at Pure Lounge in Sunnyvale. This is the largest, most beautiful nightclub in the Silicon Valley!
  • Autumn Singles Spectacular, Saturday, Sep 28, at the Crowne Plaza San Jose/Milpitas. A three-ring circus, with Speed Dating, Appetizers, and Dance Party!
AND COMING UP IN OCTOBER: Charity Fundraiser Dance, Friday, Oct 4, at Tarragon in Sunnyvale.
