Duration of time versus a precise moment
I am having trouble with a duration of time vs a precise moment. I thought that the sentence, THAT evening went very well, as a precise moment and therefore masculine. Why is it CETTE soirée s'est très bien passé ?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using an/année, matin/matinée, jour/journée, soir/soirée : time unit vs duration"

the example refers to the entire evening not just the evening as a point in time. The evening in its duration went well. Therefor "soirée" and not "soir".
