What to do for a bachelor party?

Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam...
And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva...
So tweasure your wuv.

-The Impressive Clergyman (The Princess Bride, 1987)

That movie and all its quotes make me laugh. If you, a loved one, maybe just a complete stranger you just met off the street has not see it, rent it, and watch it now!

As I get older I have started to see major events start occuring more frequently to my friends. Mawage seems to be the one that happens the most. But with marriage comes the night that all guys look forward too. I am talking about the event known as the Bachelor Party. Yes, Ladies I am excluding you from this, it's not that females don't have the all elusive bachelorette party. But from what I have heard of them; they really aren't fun, have something to do with tea and presents, and some fight over someones shoes breaks it up. Please ladies feel free to comment though!

Throughout history, every man has gone through the final moments of worry and angst before forming the unbreakable bond with his lady friend. These are eliviated though by the simple act of all of his friends taking him out, getting him blitzed. So he can have that one last great night of adventure with the guys before he is under house arrest for what seems to be the rest of his life or her life whichever comes first.

The Bachelor Party is no easy undertaking. It must be planned and scrutinized behind the grooms back for months before the actual date. It is hard work, but that is why he has best men. Now having seen many of my good friends get married, I have also been to many bachelor partys. None of which have failed, because whenever you get a group of guys together for a ruckus, your bound to have some fun. The realization that must be made by everyone involved is that the reason for this is to show him the best night possible. Leave all drama at the door, your here for him and maybe have some fun along the way. This event is where it is totally acceptable to act like a a Jack A$$ as much as possible and you will get away with it like your still living int he dorms in college. One where anything that does or does not happen never leaves the group, ever punishable by exclusion by all friends. Unless it is so damn funny it needs to be used against said friend for all eternity. There is always a backdoor in these things(Longly get you head out of the gutter).

Which leads me to my dilemma, my friends and I are stuck for what to do for a bachelor party for a close friend of ours. We know that it will include beer, but what else? What is going to make it special and memorable? The ones I have been to in the past have been amazing, and they didn't even include strippers! I know I should be ashamed of myself. But seriously people I need some help, because I care for my friend and I want to give him one hell of a time to send him on to the rest of his life. And if you met the girl he was marrying you would totally understand(I'm just kidding I love his wife(seriosuly he is screwed(no I really like her(ok maybe when I was 10 I spit in her face but it was totally called for, she pushed me off my bike and poured bucket of water on me!(seriously she is great))))). So that is where I stand I need some help and want some advice?

Note: I am really not a chauvenistic pig, I just play one on TV!

The husband is planning one for one of his friends. They are going to Vegas for a weekend to get completely liquored up. If ever there were a town built for a bachelor party, it's Vegas!

I think you should watch The Princess Bride. What? Is that a bad idea?

I'd suggest finding something to do you all enjoy. Paintballing, bowling, golfing, something for an afternoon activity.
Then a bit of a break to chill, shower and regroup, then dinner and start drinking then. Make sure its good food though, no Taco Bell shit. Need the stomach to be strong.
Then, either go hit up the bars first or you can go straight to the strip clubs. Depends on what your friend likes. Just remember, the other guys main goal at the strip club is to get the groom lap dances, not dances for themselves.

EX, I've done Vegas, it is a great time. They all just don't want to fly.

Lynn-e, you never know, that type of thing actuelly occurs with my friends sometimes.

Longly, nothing could ever top you bachelor party! But I believe it was the location that made it key!

No, No, the Bachelor Party isn't for awhile. But I was in Vegas, recently returned today! I will post soon about the wonders of losing your money to strippers! That is what I call the casinos out there because they strip you of everything you own!
