So, I haven't been doing a great job of staying on top of updating this old blog. My bad.
But I've been thinking about a new feature for the blog. In one of my former careers, I'd come up with something called a roundup, a listing of bars, restaurants and destinations in Cincinnati that fit within a theme. Because I've been invited to a bachelor party this weekend, here's a roundup of one idea for a bachelor party. I know nothing about exotic dance clubs, so you'll have to figure that out on your own.
This is kind of a gambling themed bachelor party. If you like gambling, but don't have the means to get you and all your friends to Vegas, then this is the party for you.
First, start your day at one of two local racetracks, River Downs
or Turfway Park
. If you think far enough in advance, you can see about getting one of the races named after the bachelor, like the Last Day as a Free Man Stakes, or something like that.
Next, dinner. And really, when I think of a bunch of guys getting together, I think steaks. And even though I've had some less than nice things to say
about this steakhouse, I can't think of nothing better than the trophy room at the Precinct
. It features trophys from the '76 World Series and one of Johnny Bench's Gold Gloves. And there steak is among the best in the city.
After dinner, it's drink time. For some Vegas style clubbing, drop by the Pavilion, in Mt. Adams
. Don't stay too long, though, because you'll want to grab a cab and head over to Argosy Casino
for some real gambling. A taxi ride will cost you about $50, but you may need to do some negotiating to get the best rate. Ask your cab driver to give you a price to get to Argosy
, don't go by the meter.
After that, make sure you get the groom back in time for his big day.
I'm going to be coming up with more of these in the future, on a completely unpredictable schedule, so if you have any more ideas for types of parties, let me know in the comment section.
