bachorlette weekend

Alright so my girls and I were suppose to go into the city and see the new Rocketts show but of coarse it got canceled. So now we have zero idea what to do. We were thinking of going up to Boston so I am just curious as to what your ideas are for either staying in NYC or for in boston.

    1. You are likely to get better engagement from this if you post it on the local boards.

    2. What you can do in NYC and/or Boston will depend on your BMs and what their budgets are.

    3. You, as the bride, should not be planning this weekend. Someone else should be, and that someone should know what everyone's budget is and what's available in those price ranges.

    To be fair, I'm sure the bride still needs ideas of things that will be fun so she can pass along 3 or 4 ideas to her 'maids.  It's not planning per se, it's making sure the bride's wishes are taken into consideration.
    While it's true that a bachelorette is up to the 'maids to plan and must be within everyone's budget, if mine had planned for us to go see the 50 Shades parody musical, I'd be like, "Um, thanks?" (in my head, of course) because I've never read 50 Shades; and have zero desire to see that musical even though plenty of women I know were thrilled to go see it. 
    If nothing strikes the bride's fancy in either city, there's no point spending the travel money to go to either place.  

    OP, I'm in the Midwest so no further advice, sorry!

  • I know they are planning it and I shouldn't be but now they are turning to me because they do not know what to do with the show being canceled. It is only myself and my 2 best friends doing my bachorlette party. 
  • Well, there's a lot to do in both of those cities. That's like saying, "Tell me something to do in the United States." 
    Do you want to attend another show? Go to dinner? Go to a club? Take a Circleline tour? See a band? 
  • When are you guys supposed to come to NYC? There are tons of things to do here, so what are your interests? Sports, clubbing, culture, drinking? That would help in narrowing things down in order to provide some suggestions.

  • where are you located? how do you plan to travel? do you have accommodations booked yet? boston is generally more budget-friendly, but not necessarily. i'm in nyc. as PP stated, there are countless things to do here. just depends on your budget and your interests. 
  • we have a hotel booked already in nyc but my fiancé is doing his thing the same weekend so if anything we can give it to him if we decided to go to boston. But I would love to do some clubbing, there are no other shows that interest me at all. I wanna do something fun without spending a lot of money. Like I wanna spend saturday and sunday with my girls and not just saturday night drinking do you get what I mean. I know that means spending more money than I would like.
  • I was going to suggest seeing another show, but you say there aren't any.  With all the shows in NYC, you don't want to see a single one?  Not a concert, a musical, opera, ballet, play? 

    I don't know that you can say there's nothing to do in NYC. Get online and look. Museums, touristy stuff (pictures!), shopping, restaurants, high tea, classes, spa day...

    Sorry, not getting what you mean. It sounds like you want to go clubbing which to me means a night of drinking and partying with your friends. If you want to make a weekend of things in New York look up things to do in the area as other PPs suggested. There is plenty to do and I as no one here knows you, we cannot really say what activities you would enjoy...

  • Honestly I'm sort of confused.  How can the Rockettes literally be the only show you are interested in seeing in NYC?  Check out TKTS, broadway.com, stubhub.com for tickets to all kinds of theater and concerts.

    If you want to go clubbing, there are lots of places in NYC.  You will spend A LOT of money on alcohol.  I live here and I try not to go out drinking because it's such a rip-off.  But if you want a club experience for your bach, it might be worth it.  I can't recommend any "true" clubs because I'm not into that, but if you want a party atmosphere the Murray Hill neighborhood is always busy.  You could try Tonic, it's sort of a large bar/lounge with a DJ.

    Boozy brunch is also big around here and you can usually find a pretty good deal for a unlimited drinks for a certain amount of time.  Just search brunch on Groupon.

  • I live in NYC, and there is so many things you can do here any night of the week. Broadway might have like 50 different shows so check ticketmaster. There are so many Amazing clubs and bars but it depends what your style is - house music, laid back, rock music, etc .. I could name a few places if you just tell me what type of night you girls are looking for.
  • For one of my bachelorette parties in the city my friends took me to a private karaoke place and that was a ton of fun. We had our own room just for us and there's bar service as well. CLICK

    For another (a separate set of friends took me out too) we went to Lips which is a drag show with dinner and drinks and that was also a ton of fun: CLICK



  • I live in NYC as well, and the Rockettes are actually close to the bottom of my list of things to do here. Like PPs said, I am not into clubbing, but there are tons of bars in the City and a boozy Sunday brunch sounds like a lot of fun.
