Why Curling Is A Great Daytime Activity For Bachelor Parties

What’s the first thing you think of when someone mentions curling? Crickets…Sure, the sport is a bunch of grown men sweeping ice with broomsticks, but you probably don’t think of a bachelor party. Once the summer activities start to die down and pumpkin spice season starts, curling becomes a popular activity here in Montreal. Here’s 3 reasons you should consider curling for your bachelor party:

Unique Activity

It seems like every bachelor party tries to one up the next one. Sure, we can easily throw more girls, more strip clubs, and more midgets into the mix, but how many bachelor parties go curling? Now’s your time to finally learn this mysterious game you’ve only seen on TV at the Olympics. Besides, you can finally take pictures (semi) sober with your boys and send it back to the girlfriend or wife…unless you bring along party girls of course 😉

Fun For Everyone

There are always pros and cons with daytime activities. Some guys may not like getting splashed with freezing cold water if they go jet boating or others may be scared of heights if you go zip lining, but curling is fun for the whole group. I’ve never seen an unhappy sweeper and even though the staff will explain the game to you, half the fun is not knowing what the hell you’re doing. If you’re looking to satisfy everyone in your bachelor party group, curling is a great fall and winter daytime option.

Bar   

Any sport that you can do while drinking is already amazing. Just like bowling, curling is made even better with an ice cold beer in hand. Luckily for you, there is a bar inside the curling arena. It helps loosen up the muscles and makes sweeping all the more fun. By the time the afternoon is over, you and your buddies will be well on your way to making the national curling team.

Best Adventure Activities For Your Montreal Bachelor Party

Besides the drinking and girls that every bachelor party should have, there should also be a competitive or adventure element to the bachelor party. It’s important to get the adrenaline pumping so the group can sweat out the poor decisions they made the night before. We recommend at least one, but no more than two of these activities for a bachelor party. Here are 4 activities that will be some hair on your chest:

Zipline

Eventually every bachelor party takes a stroll around Old Montreal so once you get some liquid courage in you, head over to our friends at MTL Zipline and be prepared to scream your head off. Continue the Old Montreal bar crawl by grabbing some local hotties at the other end of the zipline and head to Terrasse Bonsecours.

Bachelor Party Adventure

Axe Throwing

Is there anything more Canadian than axe throwing? Unless the axe is smothered in maple syrup and you’re wearing a flannel shirt, I’m afraid not. It’s a great way to do something more memorable for the bachelor party and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a true Canadian. Try knife throwing as well, it’s even harder.

Axe Throwing Bachelor Party

Go Karting

In our opinion, go karting is the best option for those that are looking for some good ol’ fashioned competition. Want to kick the bachelor’s ass one last time? No better way to do it than “accidentally” bumping him off the track. Up the ante and bet that night’s dinner at Queue De Cheval on the race.

Go Karting Bachelor Party

Jet Boating

The after party ended at 5:30 AM and you have jet boating planned on your itinerary at 9. While you may rather read the company’s financial reports than get splashed with cold water while nursing a throbbing hangover, we can almost guarantee your hangover will be cured and the guys will be ready for some day drinking on a terrasse after. There’s no better way to wash away the previous nights sins.

Montreal Bachelor Party review: How to impress 15 NYC guys who have done it all

The Setup

Had one of my long time clients – who finds any excuse to tag along on a Montreal bachelor party  – give me a call a few months ago. For the sake of his marriage, let’s call him Donald (fitting for the times). Donald informs me that one of his bosses is planning a bachelor party to Montreal and he needs us to blow it out as he thinks his bosses hate him (turns out they don’t). In any case, we need to make Donald and his boss look good.

After scheduling a call with Donald’s boss (alias: Bernie), we go over a few preliminary details. Overall, Bernie tells me that he is busy, his friends are degenerates, and he wants to make this event more memorable than the usual Vegas bachelor party. Luckily, the Donald has filled him in on a few of the more avant-garde details (topless beer pong and midgets) from his previous trips to let Bernie know he’s in good hands. Based on our initial ten minute conversation (mostly Bernie pausing to yell at his secretary) these were his priorities:

  • 15 guys for 3 nights, all 30-35, jaded and have seen it all (in his words “pain in the ass  New Yorkers”)
  • Great place to stay
  • Some sort of memorable debaucherous activity
  • One non-debaucherous activity so they feel better about the previous event
  • Great meals
  • Lots of hot girls
  • $1k per person ($15k total budget)

The Plan

I outlined a bachelor party package for them at $15k:

Connected Montreal New Yorkers

  • Our (Gold) standard Connected Montreal services, as always: host, no cover, no waiting in lines, no tipping for entry, itinerary and all reservations taken care of.
  • Exclusive bachelor-party-built house in the heart of downtown: 4 floors, 4500 sq feet, 6 bedrooms (Click here for house brochure)
  • Bottle service two of the 3 nights, 8 bottles total.
  • 5 young and impressionable girls (not hookers) to party with them at the club each night so that they don’t stand around and stare at each other.
  • 6 girl lesbian show at the house.
  • 4 girl topless beer pong.
  • Midget bartender.
  • Schwartz’s Catering lunch on one day.
  • Curling tournament (you’re in canada right?)

Execution

picture

When planning something of this scale, timing is everything. The key is to balance free time with scheduled events. Also, you want to calculate guys dropping out/getting too drunk as the day progresses. Big events like a suite party and topless beer pong are great afternoon activities since Montreal does not have a real boozy-brunch/pool party scene. The earlier, the better (well, after 12pm) as the guys and strippers are a lot “fresher”.  Another strategy we implement with bigger groups is not stacking too many events, as some guys will never make it (or be able to keep up).

Two weeks before the event, I sent over a tentative itinerary to Donald and Bernie. We fine-tuned it a bit and the plans were in motion. I had the girls stocked, the clubs prepped, and the midget on standby.  

Recap

With every bachelor party there are going to be hiccups, from guys dropping out, to flights being delayed, to girls having to stay home to wash their hair. While I can’t go into a blow by blow account of the bachelor party, overall, the weekend went silky smooth. All the guys survived- some less than others- and no one ended up pregnant. Bernie did his group right and The Donald still has his job. The group is already planning a return trip for the Grand Prix

The Worst Montreal Nightclubs for a Bachelor Party

The nightlife scene in Montreal changes all the time. What was hot a month ago could no longer be the case. When searching the web for “best clubs in Montreal”, you’ll probably find more dated information than stuff that’s actually relevant. We have people call all the time thinking they know which Montreal nightclubs are the best, usually based on the recommendation of a friend, of a friend who was here a few years back…

We’ve listed the worst Montreal nightclubs for a bachelor party in no particular order, so if you were considering any of these places, you need our help more than you think!

Trip Review: A Bachelor Party Better Than Las Vegas?

Can a Bachelor Party in Montreal Top Vegas?

I got a call two weeks ago from Evan in Toronto, a best man in trouble. Evan explained to me that some last minute issues came up and that they could no longer throw their bachelor party in Las Vegas. They were coming to Montreal. Evan was rolling into town with 15 guys and they were used to only the best of the best. He was skeptical that we could deliver an experience close to what Las Vegas had to offer. I assured Evan that not only could we deliver, but that the experience would blow them away. After some back and forth, we started planning out one crazy night.

Private Party in the Suite

7pm: We starting by throwing one of our signature private parties in the penthouse suite of the W hotel. In the suite, we had:

We planned the party so there was a slow build, as only Evan was given all the details. We had the midget walk in with the catering and the two waitresses started to disrobe. The guys were loving it. Our new model shortly gave up serving the guys and started giving the bachelor lap dances (old habits die hard).

About 30 minutes into the festivities the main event walked in, two smoking hot “lesbians”. While I would love to give details of what happened next, it’s probably best for everyone involved that I don’t. However, I will let you know that what started out as a 2 girls show ended up being a 4 girls and a midget…

But don’t take our word for it…

Strip Club

10pm: Our previous bachelor party review tells us there is never too much nudity so Rod took the boys over to the hottest strip club in Montreal, Kamasutra, for some quick laps. There was a blur of naked strippers all over the place and many of the guy disappeared to the back. While at Kamasutra, a group of guys tried to drop our name saying they had a reservation in order to skip the huge line outside. Needless to say our good friend JP, the manager, did not like this and ended up banning them from the club (that’s JP being nice…).

Nightclub

Midnight: We took those still left standing down to New City Gas. We escorted them in like rock stars to the best table in the place. Too many bottles were popped and not much else of the night is clear…

The $25,000 Hangover: Montreal Grand Prix Recap

Two Guys, Three Days, $25,000 in Champagne

People always wonder what my job actually entails? They think that I just go out, drink with clients, party, and live the VIP life. This last Montreal Grand Prix weekend I did, in style.

Friday

It all started when two of our perennial Montreal Grand Prix guests rolled into town. These guys work hard and play harder. This year was no exception.

It all started Friday night when we bypassed the 100+ person line-up outside Globe and were escorted by the owner himself to our table. Food and drink is marked up 3-4 times its regular price to make sure the supper clubs are weeding out the pretenders and ensuring exclusivity.

We dinned on oysters and lobster (well they did, I am allergic) and our guests ordered a magnum of Cristal which appeared with four of the model-quality staff in tow. A bill creeps from manageable to insane in about 2 Magnums of Cristal. Unfortunately, 2 bottles won’t successfully whet the appetites of seemingly all the waitresses at Globe. 14 was the magic number and by the end of the night, the restaurant was not only running out of champagne and sparklers. The rest of the evening was a blur, but the first night bar tab came to well over $12,000.

Saturday

pictureI woke up with the worst hangover of my life. Slept all day. The manager of Globe invited us back (obviously) so I called my guests and told them we had the keys to the city. They wanted to return to Globe since it worked out so well the first night (from the photos they sent me). We rolled into Globe Saturday night like rockstars. We had the premier table in the place, even better than the actual celebrities who were there. The evening was another blur of magnums of Cristal and Dom just with more girls. I wish I could remember the rest.

Sunday

Woke up on death’s door and missed the big race. We were invited to Buonanotte (same owners of Globe) to a private party where many of the race teams and drivers were in attendance. While the champagne was flowing, some clarity ensued, and we kept it to a measly 4 magnums. Our guests had no problems keeping up, ditching me and leaving with some real stunners.

Montreal Grand Prix is always crazy and this was by far the most insane F1 weekend to date…I’m glad it’s over, but there’s always next year!

Montreal Sports Teams: Check Out a Game

A great idea when in town for a bachelor party is to check out a Montreal sports team. Although the beloved Montreal Expos have moved (R.I.P.), there are still several great options to get your sports fix.

The Montreal Canadiens

pictureWhen you think of Canada, you instantly think of hockey. As popular as you think hockey is in Canada, it’s even bigger in Montreal. When the Habs (French slang for the team) are playing, the city literally stops. It’s a really big deal here. Every restaurant, from the swankiest to the scummiest will have the game on. Going to a Canadiens game is a great experience that should not be missed. The atmosphere at a regular season game rivals the post-season atmosphere of any other team. If the Habs are fortunate enough to make the playoffs, it is an experience like no other. The hockey season runs from October-April and May/June if there are playoffs. Don’t expect tickets to be cheap, but you can get seats from scalpers starting at anywhere from $50-$100 on the low-end.

Montreal Alouettespicture

The Montreal Alouettes, or locally referred to as the Als, is our Canadian Football team (CFL). The CFL has different rules than the NFL and, while the level of play is not the same, it is a real blast to go to one of their games. Best of all, the CFL season runs during the summer so it’s sure to cure anyone’s football fix. The Als also play in a beautiful outdoor stadium overlooking Mount Royal which adds even more to the experience. Tickets for the game are also very affordable with prices starting at $25.

Montreal Impact

The Impact is Montreal’s soccer club. This is the first year that the Impact are in the MLS so it’s a great option for those diehard soccer fans. The Stadium where they play, Stade Saputo, is an outdoor Stadium located in the east end of town, next to the Olympic Stadium. Going to an Impact game is an exciting affair, if you consider soccer to be an exciting sport.

When coming into town with a large group of guys, it’s always an easy sell to check out one of the local sports teams. If you would like tickets to a game don’t hesitate and contact us. We have the best connections in town!

Why the Summer Is Amazing for a Bachelor Party

A Montreal summer is the best time to visit, especially for a bachelor party. Here is why:

The Weather (Duh)

While the winters here are TERRIBLE, the summer months are amazing. The weather is very nice from May to October. Temperatures can get hot, as high as the 90s, making you forget just how cold it gets here in the winter. This is a great time for a bachelor party. You can expect clear skies and sunshine. Just remind everyone to pack their deodorant.

The Girls

Montreal girls are beautiful and, best of all, friendly. The winters here are so brutal that everyone takes full advantage of the warm summer months. This means that there will be LOTS of scantily clad ladies out and about for you and your buddies to chat with. Just walking the streets becomes an event.

The Patios

The patios (referred to as “terrasses” by locals) are the places to be during the day. Montreal has tons of bars and restaurants which will set up tables and chairs either on the terrace or the sidewalk. If there is sun, you want to be outside when drinking and hanging out. Crescent and Saint Denis are home to some of the best daytime drinking patios.

Sunday Bonus

If your bachelor party is in town on Sunday, then visiting Mount Royal is a must. Called the Tam-Tams, or just “The Tams”(french for bongo), it is the daytime event. The Tams is basically like going to the beach, minus the sand and water. Everyone just hangs out (usually stoned) in the park near the Sir George Etienne Cartier Monument. There are lots of girls in Bikinis for all the guys in your group to stare at or chat up. There is also a large drum circle and live action role playing which is interesting depending on your mental state.
