Since we post over 200 events per month we come in contact with a fair number of parties and organizers. Some are small house parties, while others are more extensive affairs in ballrooms of major hotels. As has been my habit over the years, I’ve sponsored my own events about eight or nine times per year. They’ve been at hotels, restaurants and at my home, just like the event I sponsored a few days ago during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
I really want to thank all of the 135 people who came out that night. The forecast was for cool, windy conditions and, even though we advised people to bring a sweater or light jacket, it was a bit uncomfortable at times. Fortunately we had some wonderful food and a hot musical group to keep everyone going. I’m sure, if the weather had been more accommodating, we would have had 175-200 participants.
From time to time we are asked to co-sponsor an event. We’ve done three events with the No Waiting Dating Group, and we expect to plan some more in the future. On June 11th we’re working with a new friend, Sylvia Shuter, a local Tarzana gal who is Moroccan by birth. Sylvia is known for her native specialties and has a large following in the Los Angeles Moroccan and Israeli communities. On June 18 we’re working for the second time with the Lemondrop Club, an Orange County based singles organization, which has had events throughout the OC, Long Beach, West LA, and Toluca Lake. The Party will take place in Pasadena.
And, finally, on July 3rd, we will again sponsor our own event at my home in Tarzana. We’ll tell you more about this event in a few weeks. In the meantime, here are the details on the other affairs. You can’t go to every event on our Events Calendar, but it is our hope that with enough quality events posted and brought to your attention, you will find a few just to your liking.
Tarzana Moroccan Party
We are so blessed, in this county of 9.2 million inhabitants, to have so many people from different cultures who have brought their culinary talents with them. Sylvia Shuter is a native born Moroccan who loves to cook, especially the specialties that she learned as a young girl. On Saturday night, June 11, at 8:00 PM, we will co-sponsor a dinner/dance party at Sylvia’s palatial home in the flats of Tarzana, 5831 Shirley Ave. It’s quite a large home, so we can easily accommodate 150 people inside if the weather dictates.
We’ll be serving such specialties as Casablanca chicken, Fez Beef, a couscous inspired dish, homemade hummus and pita bread, a Moroccan carrot salad, and vegetables with special spices. We’ll also have bottled water, soft drinks, and a Moroccan mint tea.
For listening and dancing we’re having one of the town’s best DJ’s that Sylvia has used on other occasions.
The cost of the event will be $25 paid in advance to our PayPal account through the BuyNow buttons below, or by calling me with your credit card at 818-342-3311, or by making out a check to our parent company, Harkitt Corp, and sending it to 4145 Nogales Dr, Tarzana, CA 91356. For those who want or need to wait until the last minute, there will be a $30 charge at the door.
The home can be reached off of the Ventura Fry. Exit at Tampa and go north to Hatteras and make a left. At Shirley make a right turn. The home is on the left side. There is ample free parking on the street.
Pasadena Summer Singles Party
The Green Street Hotel has been the scene of many singles events in the past. It is easily reached from the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys as well as the communities to the south of Pasadena like parts of Orange County. After the Lemondrop’s last event in Toluca Lake, they asked us to join them at this historic facility in Pasadena, the Romanesque Ballroom, on June 18. There will be a DJ for listening and dancing, a free dance lesson at 7:00 PM and light appetizers served between 7 and 8:30 PM. We expect to promote this event together to over 15 different singles organizations claiming more than 15,000 members. We should see over 150 participants.
The Green Street Hotel is at 50 E. Green St. Self parking is directly across the street. The cost will be $20 paid in advance to our PayPal account through the BuyNow buttons below, or by calling me with your credit card at 818-342-3311, or by making out a check to our parent company, Harkitt Corp, and sending it to 4145 Nogales Dr, Tarzana, CA 91356. For those who want or need to wait until the last minute, there will be a $25 charge at the door.
