Want to take your wedding day look to the next level? Enter the Wonderbund, a reversible tuxedo cummerbund that’s “business” in the front and “party” in the back (just like the infamous mullet ‘do), for the groom and groomsmen. Perfect for the ceremony, one side of the Wonderbund is traditional black satin. When it’s time to cut a rug at the reception, it flips over to reveal a variety of fun patterns, such as a gold-encrusted “Champ” wrestling belt, American flags, mustaches, lobsters, sharks and more. Go ahead now, show off your wild side.

Ever wonder about the origins of the blessed game of beer pong? And what exactly are the official rules anyway? We’re a little foggy on that, too, for some reason. Depending on where you live in the United States, the answers can often vary. Our friends at the Thrillist break it down for you, once and for all.

See What Happened on the Day the Bachelor Died

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Did you know that one of the earliest recorded bachelor party traditions is the groom-to-be being forced to dig his own “bachelor grave?” His friends and family would gather around to mourn his passing and copious amounts of alcohol would be consumed. Morbidness aside, that’s pretty damn cool. This rite of passage has unfortunately faded over time, but it could be heading for a revival. Case in point: Bobby from Kansas City recently sent us this video of his younger brother Collin’s bachelor party. In addition to the mock funeral, the weekend party also included guns, trampolines and a mechanical bull. The best part? Everything was captured on GoPro for your entertainment.


Thanks to Bobby for submitting this gem.

Speakeasy Briefs: a Hilariously Clever Gift Idea for Groomsmen

Speakeasy Briefs for groomsmen

Looking for a truly unique groomsmen gift idea? Meet Speakeasy Briefs. These clever boxer briefs have a built-in secret pocket that conceals…wait for it — a flask (or anything else you may need to discreetly stash). But would your groomsmen really use these special undergarments? You betcha. Here are five important occasions when going commando just won’t do.

1. The bachelor party. Will you be wearing your Tuesday morning underwear for the biggest party weekend of your life? Didn’t think so. Speakeasy Briefs let you and your crew party in style, with a secret pocket designed to stash a hip flask.

2. Pictures. Why be the millionth guy who matches ties and handkerchiefs with his groomsmen when you can be the legend who matches his groomsmen head to toe? The photo of you and your boys rocking Speakeasy Briefs will put all other groomsmen photos to shame.

3. The ceremony. Come wedding day, you and your groomsmen should be as comfortable and confident as possible. Made in the USA with a luxe blend of cotton, modal, and spandex, Speakeasy Briefs are super comfortable. And in case there are any last-minute nerves, everyone’s packing liquid courage.

4.  The reception. Sure you found the love of your life, but what about your groomsmen? With a bevy of single ladies around, having a discreet location to carry protection may come in handy later on.

5. Life after the big day. Even after the wedding day, you and your groomsmen will enjoy Speakeasys at events such as concerts, sports games or traveling abroad.

10 Tips for a Successful Atlantic City Bachelor Party

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

Debauchery awaits.

Planning a bachelor party weekend in the party capital of the East Coast? Great choice! It may come as a surprise to some guys, but Atlantic City has a lot more to offer than beauty pageants and bros sporting Jersey Shore haircuts. However, if you’re like I was before my first trip there, you probably have no clue what to realistically expect from the AC. Luckily for you, I recently got the chance to fly out there for a guys weekend and see first-hand what the “Vegas of the East” is all about. We went full-throttle (or as close to full-throttle as three guys in their early thirties can) for a long weekend and lived to tell about it  In between beers and losing hands of Blackjack, I managed to jot down my top 10 tips for throwing a successful bachelor party in Atlantic City. If you follow these guidelines, you’re in for a hell of a time:

1. If you’ve got guests flying in, it’s worth noting that the closest major airport is 60 miles away in Philadelphia. The ride to AC will take around an hour, so paying for transportation will most likely be necessary. If you’ve got a bigger group, splitting a limo is the way to go (don’t forget to slip the driver an extra $10 and have him swing by a liquor store on the way). The cheaper alternative is taking the train at $10 each way. If you opt for the latter, just follow the signs at the airport for the free shuttle to the train station.

2. The Borgata is hands down the best hotel in AC. It has the look and feel of a gargantuan Las Vegas resort and boasts a Bobby Flay Steak restaurant, multiple nightclubs, a 2,400-seat theater and the best poker room in the city. Even if you’re not staying there, it’s worth a visit for devoting a portion of your trip to dining, drinking or gambling.

3. Gamblers on a budget shouldn’t worry as cheap table games are easy to find. Blackjack is my game and I was able to find $5 to $10 tables 24/7, even at the larger casinos. Word to the wise: Try not to let the dealer or pit boss see how drunk you are, and definitely don’t repeatedly shout F-bombs while playing. Security is razor-sharp in AC and won’t hesitate to throw you and your buddies out of the casino for the remainder of your stay.

4. Contrary to what you’ve seen on Boardwalk Empire, boozing is alive, well and easily accessible in Atlantic City.  The best dive bar is Chelsea Pub, while the top destination for craft beer lovers is Tun Tavern. Want to catch the game? A Dam Good Sports Bar is the only place to watch a game while drinking a 40.

5. Don’t wake up before 11 am. You may miss the breakfast buffet, but the extra rest you’ll get is invaluable during a weekend of hard partying. Also be sure to chug a bottle of water before passing out and again when you wake up.

6. Comedy shows are where it’s at. Given its proximity to New York, it should come as no surprise that Atlantic City brings in top-notch comedians every weekend. Jerry Seinfeld, Ray Romano and Kevin James are just a few of the names to have graced the city’s stages in 2013. If you decide to attend a comedy show, breaking the seal beforehand is a huge no-no. Walking out for the restroom in the middle of a set is a virtual guarantee you’ll be heckled.

7. The Steel Pier and Monopoly street signs won’t be worth much to you other than photo-ops. But because it’s a bachelor party, cameras shouldn’t even be present.

8. For my money, The Tropicana’s Fin is the best restaurant in town. Make a reservation for an oceanfront table and be sure to order the blue crab macaroni and cheese as an appetizer.

9. Remember the words “Pizza King“. They will be your best friends at 3 am.

10. Unfortunately, you’ll have to begrudgingly accept that the trip must eventually come to an end. Before doing so, stop off at Brittany Cafe to soak up the remaining booze in your system with the best pancakes in town. It’s time to head home, fellas. If you listened to my advice, you’ll have done well.
