As some of you know, I’ve been lucky enought to find true love twice in my life. My first wife of 20+ years died three years ago. I’m getting married again on August 19th.
My best man wants to throw me some type of bachelor party. I’m not too wild about going to a strip joint and getting trashed. I’m 44 years old, my 23 year old son, and other family member will probably be present.
I’m not against drinking, and don’t even mind getting a little drunk I suppose. But mostly I want to have a good time with my friends. My best man and I used to play poker as far back as 15 years ago before the current craze hit. He suggested incorporating that into the night. (Although we’ve found that there are a TON of people who say they KNOW how to play poker, only to find out that they’re very one dimensional, and can only play Texas Holdem). Regardless, that was one of the suggestions, possibly with a perk that half the winnings go to the groom (hey! that’s me!)… whatever. I don’t care about that one way or the other.
Have any of you had a keyed down bachelor party? Do any of you have any suggestions? Sadly, the Atlanta Braves are not in town on this particular night. Some of the other ideas were to go an shoot darts, play pool, etc.
Help me out here.
