Singles Parties, December 14, 2013 - January 4, 2014

Very crowded parties celebrating New Years Eve, the most popular party night of the year! Our North Bay NYE Bash was at our favorite venue, Embassy Suites San Rafael. DJ Darryl K spun his usual magic, with the great music videos. Our South Bay NYE Bash was at a new venue for us, Four Points by Sheraton Hotel San Jose. It used to be a giant nightclub, but now it is Mosaic Restaurant & Lounge. 78 singles came for a lovely 3 course dinner, including a fabulous Fashion Show produced by Roger Francisco. Hundreds more came for the Dance Party afterwards. High energy party. Unfortunately the DJ played the music too loudly according to my taste. The DJ was hired by the restaurant (although we paid for it) so we didn't have any control over the volume. We won't have him at any of our future parties, even though he was very talented. Just too loud.

  • Holiday Dance, Dec 14, at Menlo Hub in Menlo Park. Average-sized crowd. A very fun party! DJ Frank Ruiz did a terrific job with the music.
  • Christmas Dance & Speed Dating, Dec 21, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Burlingame. We co-sponsored with Your Asian Connection, who did a terrific job with the speed dating. DJ Darryl K, as always, provided a great mix of music videos.
  • 2014 Singles Convention & Pre-New Years Eve Dance, Dec 28, at the San Mateo Marriott. Susan Bradley gave an entertaining talk on Finding Love in 2014, followed by great dance music from DJ Mendy. Susan's dog Romeo also attended, and stole the show. He is recovering from back surgery.

This is our busy time of the year, through Valentine's Day. Nobody enjoys being alone on V-Day!
  • SF Waterfront Dance, with optional Speed Dating, Saturday, Jan 11, at Sinbad's. Again we team up with Your Asian Connection. 200 singles attended last November's party at Sinbad's.
  • New Years Resolutions, Mixer, Thursday, Jan 16, at The Spinnaker in Sausalito. 96% of NY Resolutions get broken by Jan 14. Find out who is still keeping their resolutions! Only $10 for this fun party, including Mixer Game and appetizers, plus FREE VALET PARKING! Unbelievable in Sausalito.
  • Winter Ball, Saturday, January 25, at Ondine, also in Sausalito, with spectacular view of San Francisco Skyline and The Bay! Please dress in your finest.
  • Napa Meet Your Valentine Dance, Friday, Jan 31, at Silo's at the historic Napa River Inn. Our annual party in Napa always attracts a good crowd!
  • Valentine Ball, Saturday, Feb 8, at The Fairmont's world-famous Venetian Room in San Francisco. Always a giant crowd!
  • Valentines Day Dance, Friday, Feb 14, at Holiday Inn San Jose. We are lucky that this year V-Day falls on a Friday, so a big crowd is expected.
  • Marin Singles Convention, largest annual gathering of romantic eligibles in Marin, Friday, Feb 21. More details later. 
  • See you at the parties!
