Bachelor parties are a rare opportunity to skip town for some quality hang time with just the dudes. They are also a chance to stuff yourself to the gills with the kinds of food you fantasize about at your desk, or when your lady asks to split a salad instead of the pork belly you really wanted.
Whether it's actually a proper, blow-out "bachelor vacation" or just a simple weekend with a few old friends, half the excitement is figuring out where you'll be eating, drinking, and acting like overgrown children. And since bros are just as likely to be obsessed with James Beard Award–winning chefs as breastaurants, don't be afraid to add a little refinement to the accepted playbook of steakhouses and strip clubs.
