A good friend of mine is getting married this weekend, so last last weekend we threw him a bachelor’s party. For those of you who don’t know, a bachelor is an unmarried man. In western culture, bachelor parties are held at least a week before the wedding. Only men are invited (in most cases…) and usually these events tend to be pretty rowdy. In the past, when one of my Sapporo friends got married, we held his bachelor party in Susukino. But last weekend we decided to have a beach bbq camp bachelor party. On Saturady afternoon, about 13 friends drove to Mourai beach. We collected wood and built a huge bonfire. We set up grills and bbq’d burgers and bratwurst. We listened to music and told stories. And, naturally, we consumed copious amounts of beer and shot fireworks at each other. It was, all in all, a great party!
So guys, if one of your friends is soon to be married, think about throwing a party for him while he’s still unmarried. It may be the last time you see him!
