You Won’t Believe What These Guys Did to Embarrass Their Friend for His Bachelor Party

Monday, August 17th, 2015

We’ve heard of making the groom wear a funny t-shirt or giving him embarrassing challenges to complete during his bachelor party, but this story takes the cake. A group of friends pooled together (a lot of?) cash to rent a billboard on the Las Veags strip — a billboard that prominently featured the groom-to-be peddling a genital wart remover called Uncle Steve’s Rub-It-Out.

A Las Vegas billboard was rented out for a bachelor party that featured the groom promoting genital wart remover

But wait! There’s more. They even set up a website to shame the guy worldwide. This, people, is what friends are really for.

The good news is that it looks like the groom took it like a true champ. Head over to Imgur for more photos and reaction shots.

Groom’s Book Club: A Review of ‘Fool Me Once’ by Rick Lax

Friday, January 14th, 2011

HINT: If you’re sending us a book to review, it doesn’t hurt to boast a subtitle like ‘Hustlers, Hookers, Headliners and How NOT To Get Screwed in Vegas.’ Rick Lax‘s new work ‘Fool Me Once‘ does just that. And if you’re  planning a bachelor party weekend in Vegas, you must read this “field guide” if you want to make it out in one piece.

‘Fool Me Once’ by Rick Lax

The sad truth in our post ‘Hangover‘ world is that every Average Joe thinks that they can handle Vegas and not get conned/go broke/die. It’s even worse for guys traveling to Sin City for the first time (like some of you may be getting ready to do for a bachelor party).

….Oh, let me guess, you’re different. You’ve been to Vegas before. You know how to “do Vegas right.”  Alright hotshot, allow me to pose the following questions to you:

1. Do you think you can read any player’s face at the poker table?

2. Do you think the hot bartender will really drink the $12 shot you’re going to buy her?

3. Do you think Criss Angel’s “Mindfreak” is the coolest show on television?

By answering “yes” to any of these questions, you immediately are disqualified as being “ready for Vegas.” No worries though. As I said before, ‘Fool Me Once‘ is your field guide for your Vegas adventure. Rick wrote the book after his girlfriend was fooled by a conman in Chicago. The overwhelming paranoia and feelings of helplessness could only be soothed by traveling to Vegas to learn how the deceivers, hustlers and con artists really work. He took these bastards on heard first… and lived to write about it. Buy ‘Fool Me Once’ on Amazon

In ‘Fool Me Once,’ you’ll learn how to spot card counters, bluff poker pros, create your own polygraph test and pick up woman without cheesy pickup lines. Now, if that doesn’t sound like a hell of a bachelor party weekend, I don’t know what the hell does!

Things I Learned From My First Bachelor Party in Vegas

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Today we’re pumped to have one of our favorite groom bloggers contributing a guest post. If you haven’t checked out Temple of Groom yet, stop everything and do so now (actually read this post first, then go).

I recently attended my first Vegas bachelor party (and actually my first bachelor party total).  In the grand scheme of things it was tame compared to what I’ve seen in movies – no animal “shows” or sacrifices, no high speed chases or little Asian mafia men jumping from car trunks.  Just a lot of drinking, gambling, and a few strippers sprinkled on top.  Nothing really had to “stay in Vegas” that I couldn’t bring back to me in California though (which isn’t a such a bad thing).  I think it was a more realistic version of what we see in movies or on TV.  So I’ve come back with a six pack of tips for the newbies on the block who don’t really know what to expect.

1. Pay more to get your own bed. This was something I should have been more adamant about.  Because most of my friends are on a TIGHT budgets, we opted for the “how many guys can we cram into this room” approach.  Sure it was great that we only owed $40 for the room at the end of the weekend, but it really wasn’t worth sleeping with my ear infected buddy on top of me for a night.  During the bachelor party planning stages, you need to do everything in your power to insure that you will get your own bed.  Even if you only sleep for 45 minutes over 2 days like I did, it’s at least a COMFORTABLE 45 minutes.  Additionally, it’s not enough that you simply suggest this to your buddies (this is my fatal error), you seriously need to make this your bitness.  If that means  you put a few extra dollars down, it’ll be money well spent.  Find someone else that feels the same way and split a different 2 bed room with him.  Additionally, and this may be tip 1a, when picking a bed at the end of the night if you’re sharing a room, don’t assume that the bed with the messier sheets was the one that got “slept in” – do a more thorough ocular investigation. If you need help booking your room, check out VegasVIP for tips and packages.

We strongly agree with SuperDave. Get your own bed and room key.

2.  Get a key to your room. This was another fatal mistake I made.  I thought when I was ready to go back to the room certainly one of the guys w/ a room key would be next to me.  Looking back, I can’t believe how dumb I was for thinking I’d be able to track down 1 of 2 drunk friends in VEGAS while I was also extremely drunk.  If you get your own bed, or your own room, you most likely don’t have to worry about this, but if you’re like me and pile into a room with guys, don’t be surprised if the lone key bearer is nowhere to be found at the end of the night.  You could get screwed out of a bed all together if your name isn’t on the reservation and your buddy goes missing.

3.  Bring your own soap.
This one is kind of a no-brainer, but I promise you, when you’re stepping into the shower, you’ll quickly smack yourself that you didn’t think about this sooner.  Also, it’s a good idea to go grab a towel either from the front desk or the pool.  Sharing a bed with a couple of guys is bad enough, sharing their soap is inexcusable.

4.  Bring more cash than you think you need, but not more than you can afford to lose. The only faster way to lose your money in Vegas rather than the slots is the casino/strip club ATM machines.  At the strip club, there was a $12 fee to take money out of their ATM.  That’s insane.  More often you’ll find yourself digging into your pockets for CASH not your credit card, and when you’re out, the only option is the ATMs.  It’s brutal.  If you’re out of cash, take your smart friends that brought cash out to lunch and pick up the bill on your credit card.  Your friends don’t charge the ATM fee.

When the night starts to resemble this image, it might be time to down a 5-Hour Energy

5.  Drink 5 Hour Energy. This product got me through the weekend.  No harsh crash when it’s wearing off, and the taste wasn’t bad!

6.  When you’re at the strip club, “the truth will set you free.” I found that there was no really nice extremely polite way to get the strippers I wasn’t interested in to leave me alone.  If I told them I wasn’t ready for a dance, they’d say “well I’ll wait next to you till you are ready.”  If you said that you just got there, they’d say “so what?”  There is just nothing you can say or do to get a girl to quickly stop badgering you except “I’m sorry, you’re pretty, but you’re not my type.”  Most of the time after saying this, she’d give me a nasty look, but the fact that she would leave me alone was an fair trade.
