Sick before the bachelor party
June 17, 2011 8:41 AM Subscribe
In accordance with best man duties, I've planned an epic bachelor party that is scheduled for tomorrow. Unfortunately, I've been sick all week and even had to go to the ER last night with a 106F fever. It's now under control but I still feel like crap. Should I go or should I delegate organizational duties while I still have a little time?

If I end up going, drinking is definitely out of the question since I'm on Tylenol-3 which synergistically shreds the liver when added to alcohol. I'm also worn down just from being sick and don't know if I'll even have a good time. Also, I have Father's Day stuff planned on Sunday for my dad and for me.
The problem with me not going is that it seems like any pretense of organization will be lost. It was tough enough to get 20 guys to even email me to let me know if they are attending. I don't even know half of the guys who are coming. Communication with them has been spotty at best.
This wouldn't be a problem if I were a lowly attendee, but this guy is my closest friend and I'm his best man. He threw an awesome bachelor party for me and I would like to return the favor.
Should I go and have a mediocre time while probably feeling like crap and having to decline all offers of alcohol? Or should I have some of his other friends handle it and risk everything going all to hell?
