The Bachelor/Bachelorette Party
It used to be that bachelor parties were thrown by men who feared the end of the good life and freedom. It was a Rite Of Passage that signaled the end of an era when commitment reared its ugly head spawning a series of bad choices and drunken nights. This was their last ditch effort, (mostly predictable)which was chock full of embarrassing moments and juicy, life-long blackmail material. You get the picture.And hopefully, during this night ("the" night of their lives),a toast was offered in honor of the bride followed by the traditional smashing of the glasses to punctuate that fateful moment. After a time, (long over-due) the ladies came up with this "equality version" known as the bachelorette party so as not to be outdone or left in the dust. A stretch limo was a good (and smart) excuse to get completely blasted while they ventured into the world of male strippers. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to spoil anyone's night of fun. I'm just here to offer a few creative ideas,and some sound advice. Take it for what it's worth. Hopefully, it's all good in the end. This is certainly not original advice but is often a point overlooked. DO NOT HAVE YOUR PARTY THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING. This is just plain stupid and completely unnecessary unless your intention is to feel and look like death-warmed-over. Make sure you make your best man and maid of honor aware of this well in advance with perhaps a few reminders along the way. Now for some nifty ideas for you and your closest friends. Men and women have been divided to uphold the Mars and Venus thing, but ideas can apply to both.
For the Men: (try combinations of any of the

=>Cigar lounges and bar hopping (designate a driver or get a limo).
=>Box seats at a sporting event
=>Private room in a restaurant (so rowdy is no object)
=>Sports bar. Schedule according to game times.
=>Hotels - If you're going to do this, bring your own booze and junk food. Make sure you hide the key to the mini bar.
A $10 bottle of Heineken and $5 bag -0- peanuts don't taste any different.
For the Girls:

=>Make your own video (interviews:how friends met etc.)
