New Year’s Eve Bay Area

A Night to Remember for Bay Area Members

This New Year’s Eve Bay Area Events & Adventures members truly experienced a night to remember. As San Francisco’s and Santa Clara’s newest Event Managers, we didn’t know what to expect from our first New Year’s Eve with Events & Adventures, but we can honestly say that it was one of the greatest parties we’ve ever had the pleasure to coordinate and attend!

The theme this year was Wicked Winter Masquerade. Picture a room filled with black lace, elegant frost-bitten centerpieces and a little chill in the air (mainly because dancing got HOT…crank up the AC, baby!). As people started to arrive, the ballroom was filled with beautifully ornate masks and even more beautiful faces behind them. Red lipstick left lasting impressions against champagne glasses and as the night went on, you’d find those same impressions left upon unmasked cheeks.

The closer it got to midnight, the more energy seemed to fill the air. The lines between celebration and relief began to blur as 2016 came to a close. All of us had different stories to tell, lessons learned, and hopes for what the new year would bring. But what truly unified us all was the fact that we were going to live this night to the fullest. This was our time.

This New Year’s Eve Bay Area Members were Simply Wicked

11:59pm. Here we are, counting down the last few seconds of 2016, trying to imagine what happens after the clock strikes midnight. The build-up to both a beginning and an erupts as the halls echo with “three..two..one…!”

And there it was. The most perfect moment frozen in time. Everyone is cheering, hugging, kissing and celebrating with each other. Not a single thing could take this moment away from us.  Events & Adventures is all about fun and great experiences, but we’re not above a little sentimentality once a year!  We danced our way well into 2017 and demanded that it knew that this was our year.  We look forward to reporting back on even more upcoming events!

Spend Your Whole Week Meeting New Friends

This week we broke away from the ordinary and spent our free time with an amazing group of new friends. While Valentine’s Day is usually miserable for singles, Events & Adventures members spent the day laughing at Rooster T. Feather’s, a local comedy club, because laughter is infinitely sexier than spending Valentine’s Day alone. After that we left our stress (and a lot of our common sense) on the curb as we watched Zoolander 2 from the comfort of recliners at a luxury movie theatre—the day was spent in the company of good people with lots of great conversation.

But that was just the beginning of our week; our adventures included a rousing evening of sand volleyball with a huge crowd of members, and volunteering at Second Harvest Food bank. We also went bowling, and enjoyed meeting new people while having some great drinks. We ended our week on Saturday with a challenging hike through the Saratoga Mountains and ending it by filing into a party bus for some bar hopping. But this isn’t anything out of the ordinary here at Events & Adventures, just another busy week filled with interesting places and meeting great people.
