You could find the sfGirl community attending dotcom parties on any given work weekday. Launch and dotcom parties became more and more elaborate as Silicon Valley dotcom startups raised venture capital for their new big ideas.

Bluestone @Metreon – Where the Wild Things Are – June 2000
Where The Wild Things Are at the Metreon should win Best View for a dot-com party! What a cute couple! Seats ran out fast so peeps were sitting on monsters laps, in trees, and in small sailboats. JavaOne Conference attendees. Some very nice guys hanging out at the Bluestone party. These out-of-towners were nice enough to pose for a picture with an sfgirl.

San Francisco Armory Launch Party – July 2000
Stop, Police! Ok, they didn’t really say that but they did frisk us. Alright, alright, that didn’t happen either. Let’s just say this was the most guarded event I have ever been to and they still couldn’t keep the posse out! I spent some time talkin’ with these nice gentlemen about our very own SFGirl.com. We may have some new recruits! Keep an eye out for these three amigos. Climbing walls have prevailed as the newest rage at dot-com parties. Isn’t that an interesting fact to know? When you start knowing what the new trends are at dot-com parties, it’s time for a reality check. CHECK!?!?! Ok, I’m back =) What’s up with the assortment of attire. Come on party peeps! Let’s start getting these themes in sync. If it is going to be ‘cowgirl night’, please inform the other’s that it is not ‘I’m-a-French-girl night’ or ‘stiff-in-a-suit night’. Thank you… this has been an announcement from your local dot-com party expert.
jGuru @FAO Schwarz – June 2000
Is that a frog or a man? Whatever he is, he and his crazy friends are obviously having a great time playing with all the toys at FAO. jGuru really knows how to throw a cool party! I don’t know about the boy band, that was a little strange. Oh No! The Barbie section was raided again! It’s always the same, Barbie accessories get hoarded and then peeps head down to the puppet section. Why ask why!?
