Stag Night

Filed under: friends — kevin @ 16:05

Just got back from my friend Andy’s stag night in Blackpool. I didn’t take my camera so there aren’t any pictures, which is probably just as well.

The town seemed to be dominated by stag and hen groups, which makes the atmosphere a bit feral. It’s like a British version of Las Vegas with all the tackiness but a bit grubbier.

We spent yesterday afternoon down at the Pleasure Beach, managing rides on the Big One
and Steeplechase. All good fun.

Going out on the town in the evening plunged us into a world of crowded bars, groups in matching outfits and sticky carpets.

Short cultural note: Stag and hen nights are a night out for the prospective groom and bride and their friends, usually held in the weeks before the wedding. I believe Americans call stag nights bachelor parties.
