In the midst of a busy social schedule, I’ll get a moment to breathe come November. Sorry that this post is a bit late … I was there back in September.

Personally, I love visiting this city. I can not really put my finger on one particular characteristic that draws me to this city. I love the history… the location… the people. Because of this and a good reason to escape for a day, I suggested this city for a bachelorette party for my dear friend, “Cinnamon”.

However, I must say that it was not really easy to plan such a trip in Boston. I found the nightlife rather limited. I guess Boston is definitely a city that sleeps. Mind you, I wasn’t looking for a place that we could all go and get completely trashed… if we wanted to do that, we would have simply go “bar hopping” in the area they called the “alley”. Nope, we were looking for other forms of entertainment.

Needless to say, we were able to figure out a great weekend for our bride-to-be and the gang. I wanted to give a couple special shout-outs...

  • Cashunt ( – Personally, I worked with Chris at Cashunt in an arranging a “Bridal Dash” scavenger hunt during the afternoon. The scavenger hunt targeted a one mile radius circle with the Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market area as its center. It was a pleasure to work with Chris and his team. We split up into two teams and busted our asses to try to be the winning team. Everyone had a great time!! What was also great was that I got to participate in the competition even though I am the person who helped set it up. There was only one out of the six categories that I (and the bride) had to excuse ourselves. I highly recommend this activity and this company!
  • Atlantic Fish Company ( – This restaurant came highly recommend on a variety of sites. Our party went there for a very delicious seafood dinner. The staff was professional and courteous. They didn’t even give our bride a second glance when she walked into the restaurant in full bachelorette regalia. The food was phenomenal! I definitely plan on going back there again if I find myself in Boston again!
We also went to Dick Doherty’s Beantown Comedy Vault for some laughs. I must admit that I was a bit nervous when we arrived at the joint. It really looked kind of sketchy / dirty / small. The comedy acts that they put together were pretty decent. I honestly didn’t mind that our table was right next to the stage. Although, it would have been a lot more comfortable for me if our table was at least another ½ foot away from the stage. I ended up sitting in the chair closest to the stage. I knew that I would be an easy target for the comedians (which I didn’t mind) … However, it was hard to sit and be comfortable while watching them with my chair so close. I think I would go to the comedy club again… but request a table further from the stage.

The party / road trip has come and gone. I believe that everyone had a great time. We have some great pictures and memories from the weekend. What more could you ask for in a bachelorette party?
