bachelorette party

Armed with disposable digital cameras with review and delete capacity, (believe it or not cheaper than Polaroid film!!) I sent two teams, one with six women one with five, out on the Novi Marketplace chock full of bars with this agenda:

Katie's Big Night Bachelorette Party Scavenger Hunt

Rules

  • No proof no points!!!

  • Each team member must bring in at least five points

  • Teams can split up, but stay in the same bar

  • No recruiting non-bachelorette party members for collections

  • Definition of body shot is to lick salt off neck or chest, take shot from chest (if from man lap), eat lime from mouth

  • Can tell people cause for collections


  • Points/Item

    1 / One Alcoholic drink consumed by a party member
    5 / Collection of ten coasters
    5 / Alcoholic shot consumed by a party member (not including body shots)
    10 / Picture of a stranger spanking a party member
    10 / Collection of phone number (keep in mind we will call to verify later)
    10 / Unused condom
    20 / Picture of team member mooning camera
    25 / Get a stranger to do a body shot off of a member
    25 / Picture of a party member spanking a stranger

    200 / Getting thrown out of a bar
    200 / Picture of the whole team mooning camera
    TBD / Bar 'souvenirs'

    See, I thought the groups would run from bar to bar, but it seems The Post in Novi was more than large enough and populated enough to accommodate the entire hour and a half hunt.

    Both teams performed impressively. The only items that were not hit were 1) bar souvenirs 2) getting thrown out of the bar 3) picture of someone throwing up and 4) picture of team member with a stranger sporting a mullet. Many items were hit several times. For gods' sake we collected three pair of men's underwear between the all of us.

    After the game ended one girl in the party did throw up - so much so she was carried back to the hotel. Mental note, don't give extra points for doing shots, seems people drink them instead of beers.

    Even though I was responsible for the party, I have to say it went amazingly well. There was full group participation. No one felt left out, everyone contributed. There was much laughter and social interaction. Katie was not excessively made to stand out or be embarrassed, and those who like that kind of thing could act out as much as they liked. We got to dance, we got to drink. And at least five people, if not more were hung over the next day. Good party!!

    Also funny and totally out of the blue, I got offered a job. In Michigan if I should ever choose to come back. There was a bachelor party at the bar (responsible for the gathering of quite a few points) and I spent some time talking to the groom's father. Who it happens own his own company, something to do with convention services. So if I ever feel the call of Detroit...

    Best part of this all? Photographic proof baby. Gotta drop off the cameras to get me some pics. Bwa ha ha.

    personally, the note on the butt is under valued.... and there should be extra points for ball point notes...that hurts.

    Other than that...inspiring.
