Bachelor Party for Best Friend - need ideas

Hey Ya'll,
No Booze, no naked women - both He and I aren't about that (too much respect for the women in our lives...)

We are both in our Early 30's, he joined the USN a year after me, we both did the nuclear program - Now hes running a reactor in Northern Ohio and getting married next June - I'm his best man - I need to plan something.

A cousin got his friends together for a day of paintball, which sounds cool, what other cool stuff am I missing ? I have a pass from my wife to spend the day/weekend up there (I live 5h away...) so if you have any "all day" ideas - that'd be cool too. Not sure how much money I can muster up for this though...

-John

Bowling? Find a bowling alley with a liquor license.
Pitchers of beer, pizza? A lot of them serve pizza.
If no license, BYO?
The night bowling they have with the black lights now is kind of fun (even with fog machines, sometimes...oooooooh), and with the newer systems, no one needs to know how or keep score. The system even tells you who's next.
You could be hammered and still have a good time throwing heavy objects.
It's also relatively inexpensive.

"Lazer Tag" is a good testosterone-laden activity if you get enough guys to participate.

"Main Event" here has that, plus arcades, bowling alleys and pool tables...you can get a party room too if there is a gift exchange.

Offshore fishing.

PS: you didn't give us a budget. In Columbus it may be a little tough to pull off.

That is why I mentioned the budget thing--you could make a hell of a reasonable charter if you subtracted the costs of the liquor and strippers and just had a captain, boat, fuel and mate!

^^^^ I like JD's idea of the fishing trip.
Maybe a trip out on Lake Erie, since the Wedding is in No. OH. Here's one link of several from Google.

They probably wouldn't want to go offshore with me

Take him away from Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie and go to either Capitol City or Vegas. Lenny and Carl went to Vegas recently and loved it.

Vegas would be fun. Locally, are there any horse tracks nearby?

Paintball is cool if you get a big enough group. Otherwise the outfit might lump you in with a bunch of paintball punks, the type that only live for paintball, and they will wipe you out in about 2 minutes.
