Fourth Annual International Quirkyalone Day Party, San Francisco (IQD IV)
Whether you are single, coupled, widowed, divorced, or married, International Quirkyalone Day is here for you as an alternative to the mass-marketing barrage of Valentine's Day.
What is International Quirkyalone Day? IQD is a do-it-yourself celebration of romance, friendship, and independent spirit. It's a celebration of all kinds of love: for your friends, your family, your partner if you have one, and last but not least, yourself. IQD is a feel-good alternative to the marketing barrage of Valentine's Day and an antidote to the silicone version of love presented in shows such as Hooking Up and The Bachelor. It celebrates true romance, independence, creativity, friendship, solitude, and sociability. International Quirkyalone Day is not anti-Valentine's Day, nor is it a pity party for single people. It is merely a coincidence that IQD happens to fall on the same day! (That's our story anyway, and we're sticking to it.)
International Quirkyalone Day began in San Francisco with a party at Atlas Cafe in 2003. In 2005, IQD was celebrated in 24 cities as faraway as Sydney and New Delhi. Last year's San Francisco party was featured on MSNBC's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann. . . " Watch the clip here: http://quirkyalone.net/qa/iqd.php?c=msnbc
This year's IQD is a release party for the paperback version of Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics by Sasha Cagen.
IQD parties tend to be warm, intergenerational affairs. Feel free to come alone, with friends, or with a partner. This is a friendly crowd.
There will be party games, raffle, an alone-time table, and more . . .
Elegant attire encouraged but not required.
