Thursdays at The Rosewood Sand Hill Hotel are well known for being full of VCs and hot women looking to startup a love connection but lately attendance has fallen.
Peter Delevett at The San jose Mercury News reports that it's because of a rumored vice bust by police.
The talk around Sand Hill Road last week was, "Who killed Cougar Night?"
For months, the five-star Rosewood Hotel in the heart of Silicon Valley's venture capital community has been the site of a Thursday night meat market, with hordes of women in split skirts and stilettos on the prowl for rich techies who are more than happy to oblige.
But a recent report that police had arrested several big-name venture capitalists for solicitation -- by all accounts, a false story on a satirical Web site -- seems to have helped chill the scene...
Dean Takahashi at Venture Beat, thinks Thursdays at the Rosewood will revive quickly.
He's right, I'll probably swing by. I had a blast last time.
