Can I plan an original bachelor party?
January 7, 2008 10:53 PM   Subscribe

4 men. 3 days/2nights. 1 bachelor party. Fun and originality are the priorities. Money is tight. Help me, hive mind?

I am the best man at my friend's wedding. He's like a brother to me. We're beyond the days of kegs and pizza, and have moved on to good scotch and great steaks.

No strippers. No hostels. We need a proper hotel, and some good restaurants. I'd like to plan a three day and two night trip for four of us to someplace warm -- the weather is crap here in Toronto. We're going from Toronto on either Feb 2 or Feb 16 weekend. We can't all afford to spend a lot, so I have to keep costs down.

I'm looking for suggestions on:

- Ideas for destinations
- Finding good/cheap airfare and hotels (incl. package deals)
- Activities for adventurous young men (day and night)

I know it's a tall order, but I know MeFi is up to it, and I'm feeling a bit unoriginal right now. Need some inspiration.

I'm pretty sure this is one of the reasons Las Vegas was invented.

Not that it'll make for better weather, but you can currently fly to Montreal on WestJet for about $150 return as they're having a giant seat sale (ends tomorrow). Montreal's a great city with lots of great restaurants.

Start with Kayak Buzz from Toronto. I see lots of warm destinations on the cheap.

This weekend, I'm heading to some kind of cabin in the woods outside Vancouver, BC with about 9 other guys for a weekend bachelor event. It's not warm, but it's better weather than Toronto, and you guys can deal with it. Besides airfare and car rental, it'd be cheap: accommodation is affordable (especially if you're splitting the cost), there's cooking equipment and a BBQ (for your steaks), and you can bring up your own food.

Wherever you go, maybe go to a shooting range. It's fairly masculine and surprisingly fun. If you have a few extra bucks, shoot a machine gun. I never have personally, but I bet it would be a rush...
