What are the coolest, not incredibly expensive places in New York to visit at night? What's unusual and marvelous and memorable? Might include particularly interesting bars, might not. The ability to drink (or bring drinks) would be a plus, but not a necessity. Thanks.

I need a great San Francisco bar for a party with 30-50 friends on a Friday night, but I don't want to pay to rent one out. This means either a bar that doesn't get insanely crowded on Fridays, or a bar that'll reserve a back room for free. Dive bars are fine, close to Bart is vital (e.g. Mission, Soma, Financial District). Prefer a good beer selection. Does such a beast exist?

Where can adults and kids hang out together in New York? We're visiting New York, where we used to live, for a weekend. We want to arrange an informal gathering so we can see all our friends. Last time we did this, we held it at Bar Veloce in Chelsea, which was perfect. But that was before we, and many of our friends, had small children. What's a pleasant place to meet in Manhattan where 25 or so adults, many accompanied by babies and toddlers, can hang out for a Sunday evening, talk, get drinks and something to eat, and not worry that our kids are going to destroy something?

Bachelor Party: My best man is trying to plan my bachelor party. I do not want to do the typical Vegas, strippers, drink-till-you-fall-down thing. Some of the guys that will be there will want to get wild / drunk, some will not. I don't mind getting hammered, but would like to do more than just that. I thought something like an amusement park might be fun, or maybe an all-inclusive resort. We would do this over the period of three days. What are some good ideas for a bachelor party on the east coast / florida for about 10 guys? I don't want to golf. Maybe some type of adventure / adrenaline rush? How can we have fun without going to jail or feeling guilty when coming home, while at the same time letting loose and getting wild? I am not averse to going to Mexico, Montreal, or Chicago. West coast is a little too far.
