Handsome is the best man, so it was his responsibility to plan the
bachelor party.Mr. Handsome had a great time at his boating bachelor party, which took place the day before our wedding, but he wanted to come up with something unique for his brother. After much thought, he decided to throw the ultimate, 24-hour man gathering.
The party started at 11am last Saturday and finished at 11 the following morning. Twelve guys–which included Mr. Handsome’s two brothers, father, and brother-in-law (Anne’s husband)–attended. They started off at the lake on our grandparents’ property, where they enjoyed
fishing and target shooting.
After roasting hotdogs and s’mores over a
fire, they headed to a park district gym to play basketball for three hours. (Thankfully, only a couple minor injuries were sustained.) For dinner, they picked up ribs at Famous Dave’s, my husband’s all-time favorite restaurant. (He would seriously eat there every day if he could.) Then they went back
to our grandparents’ home to spend the evening playing games and
watching sports. (Our grandparents graciously spent the night at another family member’s house so the guys could have full run of the house.)
They planned to have cereal for breakfast, but our grandmother surprised them with eggs, bacon, and pumpkin-flavored pancakes. Everyone had a blast and agreed that it was the best bachelor party they had ever been to.
