I am excited to announce the details for the NINTH annual International Quirkyalone Day party.
Come find your quirkyalone (and quirkytogether and quirkyslut) brethren at:
Tuesday, February 14
8 – 11 pm
1621 Telegraph Ave
International Quirkyalone Day is a do-it-yourself celebration of romance, friendship, and independent spirit. It’s a celebration of all kinds of love: romantic, platonic, familial, and yes, self-love.
International Quirkyalone Day is not anti-Valentine’s Day. It just happens to fall on the same day.
Join us for cocktails, inspiration, and assorted fun and games.
What to expect? The best people, of course. Quirkyalones are always quirky. . . in a good way.
Fine cocktails. Van Kleef’s is famous for its Greyhound, a fresh grapefruit juice cocktail.
Greetings and perhaps a surprise reading by local luminary and qurkyalone movement founder Sasha Cagen.
This is not a typical singles’ gathering. Celebrating all kinds of love is the order of the day on IQD, and that includes love for your friends and love for your lovely self. Quirkytogether couples often come to IQD for an alternative to the saccharine marketing onslaught of Valentine’s. But you never know. Two quirky souls have been known to meet at past IQD parties.

Van Kleef’s is within walking distance to the 19th Street BART, so if you are coming from San Francisco, hop on and demystify Oakland.
Earlier in the evening, between 6 and 7, I will join Rubberband Girl for her FOURTH annual Quirkyalone Day show on KALX. Excited. She invites you thus: “Finding yourself flying solo this Valentine’s Day? Have no fear, my uncoupled friends – come celebrate your independence with Rubberband Girl (and Citizen Zain!) as we host the FOURTH annual Quirkyalone radio special on KALX 90.7 FM!!” KALX streams online, so you can listen anywhere.
