Why Justin Timberlake’s Bachelor Party should be with Us

Oi, Justin! It’s been a while[never] and here at the Firefly we are thrilled to hear about you and Jessica Biel. Even if it was through conventional media and not a phone call.. I know it’s probably a little early but given your status[celebrity badass], we need to get planning this bachelor party. Since we don’t hangout much anymore[ever], as your bygone bestie[wtf] I used the window into your soul that is your songs to come up with some great stag do ideas. It seemed to give me more ideas than your actual window. Plus your creepy security guy kept getting pushy.

To help you see how much fun we WILL have, I took some old snapshots of us I had lying around and used them to illustrate each idea. You sure can paddle Justin. I can’t wait for the world to see.

Cry Me a River

I’ll cry you a river to whitewater raft in! Isn’t it perfect? Can’t you just picture us fighting mother nature like you and the Black Eyed Peas fought hate a few years ago. Our bachelor parties love white water rafting!

- Whitewater Rafting - Everyone we’ve sent on this have had a huge time!

- After Party at Elks Lodge – These dudes know how to party .. trust me.


Sexy Back

I’ll admit, I was a little on the fence when you suggested this one with your music. But I’m finally starting to see your vision. The lights the, the cameras, the sexy. Let the hipsters have their scuzzy plaids and ratty hats. This is sooo beyond that.

- Pin-Up Photo Session & Party – It’s for the ladies but I think they’d make an exception for us.

What Goes Around Comes Around

Every time I ride the merry-go-round in the park I can’t help but be enraptured by your wisdom. It’s so true cause it always comes around. Riding the carousel made me think of being dizzy like the time we’ll climb into a giant ball and roll down a hill…. soon. No kidding, you get strapped into a giant ball and rolled. We’ve just been waiting for a bachelor party that wants to go to the smoky mountains. Apparently it’s only place  you can do it in the US. Lame. Good thing you have a fleet of private jets eh?

Whatever you choose for your bachelor party Justin Timberlake, I’m sure we’ll have fun. If you lose my address again for the invites you know you won’t get the skinny on the best Denny’s.



Bachelor Party Idea – Dodgeball – Orange County

“If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.” Those words have pushed dodgeball players to reach for new heights for centuries. No heights could be greater than our newest bachelor party offering – dodgeball on a trampoline. That’s right! Someone out there created the awesomeness that is a private dodgeball court with wall to wall trampolines AND walls for trampolines. Only anti-gravity dodgeball could eclipse this playground paramour(talks have begun with NASA stay tuned). So forget that round of golf or the kayaking trip or tea party or even the manicures you had planned… instead we invite you to regress to the 4th grade.  Pull your socks up with us, don the 80s headband and grab some balls cause it’s hurtin’ time.

Interested in dodging some balls for your next bachelor party, birthday party, or Man Cave field trip? Check out our Duckin’ & Drivin’ package in the Orange County area. It combines a mini-grand prix on a high performance go-kart track and your own private dodgeball. It’s worth noting that you won’t be dodging and driving at the same time…. yes, people ask.

Dodgeball also makes for a great joint jack & jill party. You can go battle of the sexes or the ultimate couple throwdown.

Not in Orange County?? Not a problem! We also offer dodgeball packages in the following cities: Houston, Chicago, Sacramento, Santa Clara, Seattle, Spokane, Los Angeles, Portland, and Woodland Hills. Drop us a line for more information about dodging in those cities at

Destination San Francisco- Bachelor Party & Bachelorette Party Ideas


Bachelor parties and bachelorette parties cannot go wrong in San Francisco.  When we first set-up in San Francisco came across a huge number of party ideas. If you’re looking for a great alternative to Las Vegas try San Francisco. From great food and music scenes to the world famous trolleys it’s got it all. Downtown, North Beach, and all the colorful neighborhoods boast their own personalities and have flavor enough for everyone. Alcatraz keeps a sleepy watch over the gorgeous bay with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge looming overhead. Your bachelor party won’t be disappointed when you show them the grilling classes, stripper cruises, or night club tours. The bachelorette party will love the nightclubs, relaxing spas, and sailing adventures.

When we check out a city for the first time we look for a few things:

  • Transportation - is it easy to get around?
  • Proximity – Is everything ie. bars, clubs, hotels, etc close to each other? Are there some cool daytime excursions close to the area for the bachelorette party?
  • Saturation - Does the area have a strong selection of clubs, restaurants, bars, etc?
  • Safety – Would a group feel comfortable wandering around the streets at 2 in the morning?
  • Lodging – What’s the hotel or vacation rental situation?

Best Drinks for the Bachelor Party

tequilaWhat is the perfect drink for the bachelor party? The debate has bounced off the walls of many a man cave and still we are no closer to an answer.  The perfect drink is an elusive prey, a fickle mistress, and a muse worth seeking.  In hopes of easing your troubled man mind, we reached out to some of the men(and one woman) tied to the wedding industry and put the question to them. Hoping… that their answers might bring peace to those bands of men wandering from bar to bar in celebration of the groom’s impending matrimony.  Read what they had to say about the perfect bachelor party drink: Continue reading →

White Water Rafting Bachelor Party for Real Men

Whitewater rafting is for closers. Strippers are for sissies.  Forget them. Any schmuck with mommy issues can wave a dollar bill and act like a 12 year old. We’re telling you to Man-Up and face nature like a gladiator…. with a paddle and a life preserver and a giant inflatable raft. Yes, we’re telling you that you need to go whitewater rafting if you want to be a man. You’ll face Class III rapids as you and your best friends scream into the foothills of the Sierras. The river is an unforgiving opponent and facing it successfully is more fun than partying Hangover II style. Mike Tyson never won a victory as sweet as navigating the South Fork or Middle fork of the American River.  Have we convinced you? Are you ready to book a whitewater rafting bachelor party?

Grab your big boy undies and check out our newest full day whitewater adventure for your bachleor party from $109 per person

You’ll get a day of adventure complete with lunch, guide, a boat(really), and a lifetime of memories that don’t involve a hairy mole on a stripper’s stomach(been there).

Crazy Bachelor Party Ideas: The Permanent Marker

This is what we got back: Continue reading →

Great Bachelor Party Pranks & Mischief


Waking up stranded on the roof  Ceasar’s Palace in Las Vegas, the morning after your bachelor party, is what we consider epic. Yes, we know that The Hangover is a just a movie, but a part of us treats like it’s an almost reality. It gives the rest of us pranksters and miscreants something to shoot for. Now stealing a tiger, angering naked asian dudes, and abandoned infants are beyond the scope of this article. We will however cover some pranks and some mischief that can add to the craziness at any bachelor party. What we’re listing for you will either fall under “prank” or “mischief”. If we label it mischief it will most likely involve explosions, substances, or running & hiding. If you do them well enough or really poorly it could involve them all. As best man or groomsmen it is your responsibility to cause some ruckus.

A few items that should be standard when heading out on a bachelor party. By definition a bachelor party is a gathering of men. All man gatherings should find reason to use most of these items. So this list should be a no brainer

  • Roll of Duct tape
  • Fishing Line
  • Multi-plier
  • flashlight
  • Superglue

We’ll start you off with two of our favorite bachelor party pranks and mayhem. Keep an eye on the blog for future ideas from us.

Idea #1: Mischief : The Ping Pong Canon

It is incredibly easy to create a potato launcher in it’s simplest form. All you need a cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels, a ping pong ball, hair spray, and a lighter(preferably the long skinny kind). Follow these steps:

  1. Insert the tip of the lighter about an inch into one end the card board tube. Use your duct tape to seal that end off and keep the lighter secure.
  2. Take the hair spray and do a quick spritz down the open end of the tube. Make sure you’re using an aerosol type spray.
  3. Insert ping pong ball into tube ( don’t go further than half )
  4. Spark the lighter. The lighter will ignite the air/propellant mix and fire the ping pong ball out of the tube.

A common mistake is spraying too much hairspray into the tube. In order for combustion there needs to be a mix of hairspray and oxygen. Experiment with variable amounts of hairspray and also try different distances down the tube  for the ping pong ball. If you don’t have a paper towel roll, try taping two toilet paper rolls together.

5 Great Bachelor Party Cities

Anywhere but Las Vegas! We hear that constantly in from bachelors that are weary of hearing about Vegas. It’s an institution but not everyone is into loud clubs, long lines, and a the Sin City light overload. A client recently  inspired us to put together 5 great bachelor party city alternatives to Las Vegas. We went looking for top bachelor party destinations that were strong in the following areas:

  • Transportation: Can you get around the city with your party without a car? Easily?
  • Lodging: Are there plenty of choices for hotels, motels, and vacation rentals? Are they friendly to bachelor parties?
  • Day/night Activities: Is there a nightlife? Is there a central area for the nightlife like a downtown? Is there stuff to do during the day?

With that criteria in mind we started looking and seeing which cities we felt a bachelor on his bachelor party could have some fun.

San Francisco

If you live in California then San Francisco is a no-brainer since it’s only a commuter flight or long drive away. For everyone else it’s sunny Southern California’s slight colder cousin to the north. Don’t let the lack of a plastic surgeon’s playground(orange county) fool you, it’s a prime destination for any bachelor party group. Their public transport is first-class. You can travel to any point in the city using BART or their trolley and bus system.  Your bachelor party  actually gets to choose from a few different neighborhoods to party in at night. Between North Beach and the Financial District you can find great restaurants, big clubs, cozy clubs, and a plenty in between. You can take daytime excursions to Napa Valley for some wine, jump in a kayak on the bay, or get your pulse up with some whitewater rafting. Here are a couple of party packages in the area:

Platinum Package: Defcon 4 – High-speed carting, stripper cruise, dinner, and shooting

Bachelors and Bullets – Shooting range and paintball

Destination Bachelor Party and Bachelorette Party: Los Angeles

If you want to a taste of all-American culture, then head to Los Angeles.  It is the entertainment capital of the world, the streets of Hollywood often feel like a reality show. This diverse city has restaurants for the adventurous palate, the hottest clubs and eclectic beach cities.

When hosting a bachelor party or bachelorette party in Los Angeles you always have to take into consideration the traffic, so leave plenty of time if you are going from one activity to another.  We recommend getting a limo or party bus, so you can relax and have a few drinks (optional) while someone else takes care of parking and navigating the traffic. Limo drivers are also great at recommending local activities and flavors.

When we look for new locations for our parties we take a few things into account.

  • Transportation - is it easy to get around in Los Angeles? Public Transportation?
  • Proximity – Is everything ie. bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, etc close to each other? Are there some cool daytime excursions close to the area for the bachelorette party?
  • Saturation - Does the area have a strong selection of clubs, restaurants, bars, lodging etc?
  • Safety – Would a group feel comfortable wandering around the streets at 2 in the morning?

In Los Angeles a Bachelor Party can go clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, or indoor sky-diving before hitting the clubs, while the Bachelorette Party can sample Champagnes, cook a gourmet 3 course dinner or simply relax in a spa.  You will not be disappointed by the sights and sounds in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Bachelor Party Packages:

  • Speed Demon – 50 laps round the race track, did we mention that you are driving, then sit down for a family style dinner and club.
  • Platinum – Spy School – Self defense followed by fencing, then learn how to make the perfect Martini – you are now ready for your next mission Mr Bond
  • Bump & Bowl – Bumper cars on ice (are you kidding me), then off to a swanky bowling alley with bar.

Los Angeles Bachelorette Party Packages:

  • Idol Wannabe – Become a superstar for the day and make your own CD, then sit down to a family style dinner and entrance to a club.
  • Glamor Girls – Design your own perfume, then have your nails painted in this chic nail boutique (private party)
  • Chocoholic Poles – Awaken your inner sex kitten pole dancing then indulge in chocolate, make or taste these delectable treats in a chic chocolate shop (our most popular package)
