One of my closest friends in the world, Steve, is getting married in June! As his "best woman," it was my duty (and pleasure, obviously) to throw his bachelor party, which we celebrated over the weekend in Brooklyn. I set up a tour and tasting at Kings County Distillery, and made a reservation for a steak dinner. We spent the rest of the evening drinking whiskey and playing board games in the coolest apartment I've ever stayed in. (Use this link for $20 off your first trip.) Keep scrolling for photos and details!
I borrowed an idea from A Beautiful Mess and customized whiskey tumblers with the name of each wedding attendant using paint pens. The writing is waterproof (unless you scrub hard or it goes through a dishwasher), so it made a fun favor for everyone to use that night, and then take home.
We had a great tour and learned so much about not just the distilling process, but also the history of whiskey in New York City. We also got a great group photo. See everybody's pins? (Also omg I'm so short.)
Dinner was fabulous. The staff at Destefano's knew we were a bachelor party, and very kindly gifted us a round of limoncello for dessert.
On our way back to the apartment, we stopped by a random liquor store to get (more) whiskey, and stumbled across – wouldn't you know it – another whiskey tasting! Haha that was definitely a theme. We spent the rest of the evening drinking and playing Scattergories back at the apartment. I had prizes for winners of each round, wrapped in wood grain paper from Noteworthy: A set of leather coasters, a bottle of (you guessed it) whiskey, and a cross stitch I did of Ron Swanson (find the pattern here).
The next morning it was rainy, so we ordered bagel sandwiches for delivery and curled up on the couch to watch crappy movies on Comedy Central while the boys taught me how to use Snapchat. I can't think of a better way for the adventure to end :) Steve, we love you, and can't wait for you and Anna to make it official!
