Whether you call it a “group mancation” or an “adventure bachelor party”, alternatives to the traditional booze-and-strippers pre-wedding sendoff for the groom are becoming more and more popular.
If you and your boys are thinking of going this route right before one of you takes that long walk down the aisle, there’s one upcoming event that’s perfect for a weekend of drunken debauch… um, joyous celebration of impending matrimony.
On February 17, 2008 the city of Daytona will become the party center of the country when it hosts the 50th Running of the Daytona 500.
Top celebs and rabid race fans will descend upon the city for a never-to-be-forgotten weekend of racing, drinking, special events and general mayhem in addition to the surfing, fishing, boating and bikini chasing always available along the city’s 23 miles of beaches.
You can take the groom to a strip club any time. Partying at the 50th Daytona 500 makes for a once in a lifetime bachelor party experience. (Maybe twice in a lifetime if you make the 100th Running… but he’ll be around 80 by then. And probably not in bachelor party shape.)
Accommodations are booking already, so even though it’s about six months away, reserve soon. Ticket packages are available at www.racetickets.com or by calling 1-800-Pit-Shop. (Not pit stop.) Find info on the race at www.daytona500.com.
