A group of 10 of us would like to celebrate a dear friend of ours before he gets married, and we're meeting in the Los Angeles area for a bachelor party. We're all students, or recently graduated, and so we're trying to limit the cost to $500. What are some affordable activities that we can do around the LA area that would be super fun? Are there any notable activities close to the coast (Malibu, Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, etc)?
Thank you for all the help! [more inside]

I am getting married in Seattle in late September. I will have about a dozen friends and spouses in town for the event. I have a vision in my head of a low-key bachelor party, sitting in lawn chairs on the Sound somewhere grilling or doing a clam bake thing, within a half hour's drive from Seattle. Advice for making the vision a reality? [more inside]

I've whittled down options for my bachelor party, which will be quirky but fun. Intended audience, around 25 to 30 bros in the 30-35 year old segment around the country, but mostly east coast. Everyone has jobs, few have kids. All played or play sports or like them. Want some thing different, fun and memorable. My options: Chicago for a weekend, or Memphis/Ole Miss for taste of the South.

Recommendations for good bachelor party "activity"-type places in NYC. Not looking for debauchery—right now, we're considering something like Brooklyn Bowl
. Thinking along those lines or pool/darts, that sort of thing, but also interested in other ideas. Manhattan or Brooklyn. [more inside]

For a bachelor party in Connecticut, I would like to rent a motorboat big enough for 6 people, for a half-day, ideally near Foxwoods casino, ideally with a bbq grill, two weeks from now. Recommendations please?

First time groomsman trying to put together plans for a bachelor party. What's a fun idea when some of the other guys are under 21 and the groom doesn't really drink anyway? He's a little socially awkward—even with us—and I want to make sure he has a great time.

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? [more inside]

I'll be visiting New Orleans next weekend for a double bachelor party (my brother and a friend of his). I'm helping to plan the event - what should we do? We're looking for perhaps 1) a great restaurant for a nice meal, 2) a club with bottle service or something like that, and 3) maybe a place to watch the ballet, so to speak. There will be about 15-20 of us. Thanks for your advice and suggestions.

I'm helping plan a gay couple's bachelor party that is happening TONIGHT, and the male strippers just
cancelled on us. Ugh. I know that the couple will be disappointed if there's no nudity involved in the shenanigans tonight. We were hoping to not have to go to a strip club, but rather have the strippers come to a house in the 'burbs. Help me find 1 or 2 gay friendly male strippers in the D.C. metro area [more inside]

So I'm a gay male, have a good friend who's a straight male visiting from out of town. We're looking for some activities in San Francisco that might fall into the category of bachelor-party male-bonding sort of thing... Any ideas? Things guys might do in Las Vegas for $1000 please, Alex! Are there strip clubs that feature both men and women?

What are some Bachelor Party options for Philadelphia on a Friday night?
"Adult Entertainment" is probably out (Atlantic City for the next night). We're looking for fun places that a group of 8 guys in mid 20s would enjoy (early 20s places are always an option). Bars, BYOBs for dinner, cheesy dance clubs. Probably looking for places where the dude ratio is relatively low. Staying in center city.

My bachelor party is in a few weeks, and my friends are likely dragging me to a strip club. Since I have never previously patronized such an establishment , I am seeking advice on etiquette and how to play it cool.

What would be a fun group activity for a bunch of thirtysomething guys in the Washington, DC area in the first week of October? It's for a bachelor party, but don't let that restrict the kind of thing you suggest. The groom has a quirky sense of humor. He loves videogames, movies, and kitschy pop culture stuff.To give you an idea, Dinosaur Kingdom
would be perfect if it were closer to the metro DC area. [more inside]

I'm throwing a bachelor party in the D.C. area in October. Groom and guests are all mid 30s. Techies, med school, law school, etc--generally nice guys. As far as I know, they are equipped with penises. Yet they're not really the "stripper" sort--more likely to appreciate a pint of Guinness and a well-turned smart-ass remark. What kind of unique and interesting events/activities can I arrange that will cause groom and guests to expound to no end about what a great weekend they had? Bars and restaurants suggested will be appreciated as well.

I'm planning a bachelor party in Houston. Anyone have any suggestions? What to do, where to go, who to hire?
We're working on a pretty limited budget. Something along the lines of $30-$40 per guy with 10 guys in attendance.
Suggestions need not be Houston specific but any personal reviews of clubs or activities in Houston would be very welcome.
