Getting Married Soon?
An Independence Day Bachelor Party
Why? Well, July 4th usually involves outdoor fun, barbecued food, and beer so it sounds like a perfect day to get the guys together and celebrate your groom-to-be’s independence one last time. Here are some ideas…
Patriotic Spots to Celebrate
If the groom is a history buff, this is the perfect opportunity to take him on a weekend that celebrates his heritage while you celebrate his impending wedding. Tripadvisor.com lists top 10 Patriotic Attractions, here are my picks:
Freedom Trail (Boston Massachusetts)
“Boston’s Freedom Trail is a two-and-a-half mile path through 16 significant U.S. historical sites where Revolutionary War heroes fought for U.S. independence, including the site of the Boston Massacre, the Old State House and Bunker Hill Monument, to name a few” (tripadvisor.com).
Mount Rushmore (Keystone, South Dakota)
“A famous 60-foot mountainside carving created by sculptor Gutzon Borglum and completed in 1941 pays homage to the most influential U.S. presidents in our country’s first 150 years: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt” (tripadvisor.com).
It doesn’t matter what you serve as long as you grill it and then stick it with a lot of American flag toothpicks!
Barbecuing is as American as, well… apple pie!
Don’t forget to organize some games. This truly American football is available from carnivalimports.com (irony somewhat intended).
The baseball is from chinawholesalegift.com.
Clubplanet.com lists 5 different drinking games for the 4th of July.
All American Stories
End off the night (or the next morning) with an All-American movie perfect for some all-American guys: Saving Private Ryan, The Outsiders, American Pie, Dazed and Confused, Animal House… whatever suits your group of friends the best (any other suggestions?).
Don’t Forget Your Independ-pants
…and shirt, and shoes…
This cool shirt is from onlinesports.com.
You might also consider throwing your stagette or bachelorette (or Jack and Jill party) on Independence Day!
