Los Angeles singulars enjoy a pre-Valentine’s Day party at Pink Taco in Century City.
SingularCity, the social networking website for men and women in Los Angeles who enjoy their independent lifestyle, celebrated Valentine’s Day with a party at Pink Taco in Century City on Sunday, February 13. The event also provided an opportunity to raise awareness for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women, an initiative dedicated to saving women from the devastation of heart disease.
“In the past, SingularCity has shied away from having an event around this particular holiday because of the old idea that it’s only supposed to be for couples,” says Kim Calvert, the founder of SingularCity and Singular magazine. “This year we decided to make a stand for singulars everywhere. The concept that you have to be ‘in love’ or at least on a formal ‘date’ in order to enjoy Valentine’s Day needs to stop.”
The party included a silent auction of select, one-of-a-kind art jewelry from posh Beverly Hills gem boutique CEZUA, get acquainted games from Wise Guys Events, delicious appetizers and heart-healthy anti-oxidant cocktails from Pink Taco along with drawings for prizes from local merchants, theaters and art museums.
Prize and gift sponsors for the event include: Macy’s; Dry Bar; Single Tease, Michelle Alexander and Jeannie Long authors of humor mini-book “365 Reasons Why I’m Still Single”; Karin Anderson, Ph.D. author of “It Just Hasn’t Happened Yet”; Wolfgang Puck Iced Coffee, Pink Taco, LACMA, the Coast Theater with tickets to the new romantic stage comedy, “Love Sucks” and Barcelona Events with tickets to the Beverly Hills Wine Festival on Feb. 27 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.
