I’m a recovering alcoholic, which means I don’t drink and my maids want to throw me a bachelorette party. I still go to the bar at times to hang out with friends but it’s not my favorite place to be. We are stumped on what to do to celebrate. Can you suggest anything fun we can do instead of bar hopping?

@knvprincess143: Spa day/makeovers with a nice dinner afterwards. Maybe go to a place that specializes in fun “mock-tails” so you can have a fancy drink in a fancy glass without the alcohol.

my cousin had a big supper gathering at her favorite resturant we had the top floor and they made a menu for us

What about a Piano Bar? Or you can go to a sporting event or a play/musical with a nice dinner? Or afternoon Tea? There’s SO many fun things you can do that don’t include drinking!

If everyone is looking for the traditional raunchy night out why not have them throw a huge party at a friends house. Have drinks for everyone else with plenty of alternatives for you (if you’re okay with that)They could even get a stripper to come to you 😉 I’ve went to two really great bachelorette/lingerie showers that were non-alcoholic. One was a passion party where the novelty sales lady comes to the party and does all the games and activities while showing off the products. Its just like tupperware,(but naughty) where you get the free stuff for having the party and guests can buy you stuff.
Other alternatives could be silly but fun stuff like kareoke, or sexy scavenger hunt. Or dinner somewhere nice.
I think a fun time is in the details, themes, decor, attitutude not in what you’re drinking…

We did a mani/pedi, then dinner, and then a ghost walk. It was a lot of fun!

One part of my bachelorette party was dinner at a fondue restaurant — an activity and dinner all in one, and the girls loved it!

Maybe go to a concert or a road trip.

A girls weekend away? You can relax, tour the town, do anything really- but it’s not primarily a night out drinking.

Spa day, soap making party (I did this for a shower and it was really fun), pottery making (I did this for a bachelorette party and it was NOT my thing, but everyone seemed to enjoy it), slumber party (with games, movies, food), I did a glamor shots bachelorette party that was hilarious with the gobs of makeup and bad outfits)….
What are some of your favorite things to do with your friends? I’d use that as a base and develop the party around those things.

Your suggestions have been great. I’ll suggest some of these. I like the sporting event idea.
