Psst! It's party time at Matzo Ball

"I'm not Jewish, but I'm seriously considering crashing tonight's Matzo Ball at Watertown in Queen Anne. (I'm so over egg nog at this point.)

"It's like going to a Jewish wedding without a rabbi," said [a representitive] for the Boston-based Society of Young Jewish Professionals/Matzo Ball. "It's a party."

You know how people say weddings are a great place to meet people? Same principle applies here: If you're single, come to mingle. It worked for founder Andrew Rudnick, who met a nice Jewish girl at one of his annual Matzo Ball parties — now in 13 cities, including Seattle for the first time — and married her.

But you don't have to be single — or Jewish, for that matter — to attend.

The party starts at 8 tonight at nightclub Watertown (206-284-5003, 106 First Ave. N.); tickets are $25 at the door. For more information, visit
