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 events@fireflygroupevents.com

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?

Party Bus Tips – Beware! – Bachelor Party & Bachelorette Party

Party Bus getting towedThe bachelor party or bachelorette party is where everyone loves to go big. We party like Charlie Sheen and spend money like Donald Trump and can’t remember much the day after. The transportation of choice is usually a stretched SUV limousine or tricked out party bus rental. When it comes to picking your VIP  limo transportation you need to be careful. If you do a search for Party Bus or limousine you’ll get a bazillion different companies trying to win you over. You’ll see cheap prices, free hours, free drinks, and more clamoring for your attention. Not all companies are created equal.  Here are a few things to watch out for:

1. Do they own their vehicles/fleet? We deal with a lot of companies but we won’t work with one that doesn’t own it’s own vehicles. There are a lot of limo brokers out there who resell limousine services. They take a booking then farm it out to the lowest bidder. This means they don’t have firsthand knowledge of the vehicle or driver.  We prefer to go to the source and book with companies that service their own vehicles and have regular drivers.

History of the Bachelor Party and Bachelorette Party

Origins of the Bachelor Party:

Cover of "Bachelor Party"

Cover of Bachelor Party

Think back beyond color tv and records to the 5th Century B.C, it is believed that the ancient Spartans were the first to celebrate the groom’s last night as a single man.  The Soldiers would hold a dinner and toast the groom.  Since then, bachelor parties have evolved and become a little more raucous.

The meaning of the term Bachelor used to be a young knight or a student with a bachelor’s degree, Geofffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales first used it in reference to an unmarried man in the 14th Century.  It wasn’t until 1922 that the world saw the term Bachelor Party  in a Scottish publication. It was used to describe a ‘jolly old’ party (Time Magazine).  It was also thought of that in the 1800′s gentlemen of the Victorian Era wanted a night to say goodbye to friends that won’t be allowed to come over to the house once the bride has moved in (Oakland Tribune).  The more recent traditions of humiliation, hazing and debauchery come from a bunch of 80′s  comedies like the Tom Hanks movie Bachelor Party.
