Ok, so its time for New Years Resolutions again. Mine are
the usual: Eat less, floss more.
The resolution common to most singles, of course, is to get out more often,
do more fun things, meet more people. Which is what Single Scene is all
about -- giving you lots of good information on where to go and what to
do to meet people and have fun. So check the news articles and our calendar
for lots of great stuff happening in early 2003.
Theatre lovers, for instance, can get discount prices and a special opportunity
to mingle at the singles performances of the Arizona Theatre Company (see
article this issue). This is an outstanding theatre company and the performance
coming up is their musical -- always a great event. Society for the Arts
continues to host the social after the singles per-formance, which is
an absolutely wonderful tie between a singles group and a community organization.
Saturday, Feb. 1, the Singles Fair and Valentines Ball will be
held at La Posada Resort, 6 to 9 pm, followed immediately by their Valentines
Ball. The Fair features information booths from lots of area singles groups
and singles-related businesses.
We have a booth every year, and certainly urge all the singles groups
and singles businesses to participate. Its a great way to make contact
with new people. Ill also be one of the speakers, talking on Where
were you when the communication broke down?, about getting along
with the opposite sex.
Now that I think about it, why does mistletoe go with Christmas? Wouldnt
it make more sense with Valen-tines Day?
Coming up in our March issue, our annual Great Dates lists of free and
inexpensive (under $7) things to do around the Valley. Be sure to pick
it up! Better yet, subscribe today so you wont miss it!
Unless it gets hot early, the fall rains mean we should have a terrific
show of wildflowers around the area this spring. Why am I mentioning that
now? Spring starts in late February in the desert. Get ready to stop and
smell the desert marigolds! (Actually, they dont really have much
smell, but it ties in so nicely to stop and smell the roses.) Enjoy!
