In a previous post we wrote about Mixx Nightclub at the Borgata. A great idea for your bachelor party.
Well, after Memorial Day Weekend of 2010 they are shutting the doors for a couple weeks and totally revamping the club to make it even better.
What does this mean for your Atlantic City Bachelor Party. Well, if you're heading there after June 25th when they re-open you'll absolutely want to stop by because it'll be even better and the pros at the Borgata will be hyping it even more.
So - just wanted to drop a quick update because just as you would expect from the great people at the Borgata, they are taking something good and making it even better! BAM!

In a previous post – here – we talked about having the bachelor party stay over in Brigantine. So, we thought we’d continue talking about neighboring towns of Atlantic City by talking about having your bachelor party stay in Margate, NJ. AC’s neighbor on the other side.
Just a note – while we talk about staying in other towns for your bachelor party we do still fully recommend doing just about everything else within Atlantic City itself. AC is where all the action is and where the best and craziest ideas for your bachelor party can take shape.
Margate is another quiet neighbor of AC that basically is an extension of the major streets of AC as you drive past the Tropicana and Chelsea and leave town. Staying in Margate is a good option because 1) a lot of people have family or summer houses in Margate and 2) Margate has a couple good bars and access to fishing (see our post on Bachelor Party Fishing ).
Margate’s main claim to fame, and main focus of any bachelor party ideas there is Memories. A great and typical shore bar that is always lively and worth stopping in for a couple pre Atlantic City craziness drinks. You can even stop in there right after fishing because it’s directly across from the boat docks. The good part about a bachelor party stopping in here is that you’re not going to pay AC casino drink prices and the girls aren’t expecting AC douche bags. That being said, the girls here are usually your typical jersey shore type girls so work on your tan before going.
So, if you’ve got some reason to stay in Margate for the AC bachelor party take advantage of it. You’re close enough to AC to enjoy it and Margate offers a couple things that are worth checking out.

You just found out that your buddy’s bachelor party is coming up and you need some excuses to get approval to get your ass to Atlantic City. First things first: you need excuses, wow that SUCKS. What are you like 13? OK, we’re just kidding – we’ve been in that boat before (not).
Anyway, here are some quick thought starters to get your excuse engine going. While these are intended to help you come up with some great excuses we truly believe that the best excuses are rooted in really good true reasons – because that makes them easier for the person you’re giving the excuse to believe it.
“I’m only going to the bachelor party in Atlantic City because:”
So there you have it, some great starters to help you get permission to go to the bachelor party in AC. The best idea for you to work on next is to grow a penis and become a man so you don’t have to come up with excuses for going to your friend’s party.

We've written about the great bachelor party idea of fishing before (here). In that post though we highlighted fishing on the back bay in a party boat and we thought it would help some of you if we talked about deep sea (ocean) fishing vs. party boat (back bay) fishing.
Both are great but you'll probably only get to do one for the bachelor party. Atlantic City also offers both so depending on which you choose, you'll be able to get it done (and we can help you with either).
So here's some advantages and disadvantages of the two:
Party Boat (Back Bay)
Our absolute recommendation for a bachelor party is to do party boat fishing. Your in Atlantic City for a Bachelor Party - not for a whole day of fishing. If you want to go deep sea fishing at some point... great - do it when it's not competing for time with strippers and gambling.

We love poker as an idea to take up some time during AC Bachelor Parties. While we do prefer getting our own table with our party goers and taking all our friends money - we love playing in tournaments too and taking other peoples' money.
Plus, if you play with your group of friends a lot you will have an advantage if it comes down to a couple of you guys at a table with some outsiders.
Here's a list of AC poker tournaments (at this time - but it does change sometimes so check the hotel website for latest) that take place everyday so you can plan when to earn some extra cash for the bachelor party. Personally, we love the midnight madness tourney at the Taj Mahal - but we usually hit that not when we're enjoying a bachelor party night. Midnight at a bachelor party there's a lot more fun things to do besides poker.

Of course, we always recommend choosing a pro like us so click here, but these other ideas will help as well.
Those are our ideas to help you plan your AC Bachelor Party. There’s more throughout the blog so keep reading – or contact us and you’ll just be amazed with our party packages. We usually respond with options within 2 hours (but the earlier you start with us the better the options get).

The Trump Marina Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City is one of our favorite places. Maybe it’s because it’s one of the first places that we’ve thrown a party, or maybe it’s because it’s more affordable than many other places, but we really think because it offers so much under one roof.
When you’re planning a bachelor party you need to have options and ideas for a wide range of possibilities. The Trump Marina offers gambling, nice sleeping rooms, a Hooters, a steam room / spa, a nice pool, a deck bar / restaurant right on the water, a nightclub full of eager cougars, and cheap table limits. While you won’t spend all your time here you definitely should consider it an option for staying here because the price is always right and the ideas that work for a bachelor party are plentiful.
Options – as mentioned above – you get just about everything you need here.
Price – for what you get vs. what you pay there’s no competition.
Size – small enough to be able to find your buddies easily, but big enough that the cocktail waitress you pissed off by the slots won’t find you at the tables.
Crowd – you’re not going to run into a bunch of groups of young girls here. That’s OK because their moms party in the Wave nightclub.
Overall, we even feel bad letting the cat out of the bag with this one because it is a favorite place of ours. Contact us to find out about the benefits of the suites there and the super secret place to sleep if you get locked out of your room. Definitely put it on your options list of where to have a home base for your Atlantic City Bachelor Party.

So you’re looking for a place to stay for your Atlantic City Bachelor Party and you keep coming across this place called Brigantine. You know it’s in NJ, you checked Google Maps and see that it’s close to AC, but you still don’t know what to think about what it’s like to stay there. Here’s some info. on Brigantine and what it’s like to stay there for the bachelor party. Also, be sure to check our post on getting a place outside a hotel or casino so you know if staying in a house is good for your group.
Brigantine is right over a very small bridge that you almost run into as you’re trying to drive to Harrah’s or the Trump Marina. It’s a very small island that’s a great alternative for people who want to be near AC but want nicer housing options or to be close but not right in the middle of the greatness that is AC.
Even though Brigantine is incredibly close to AC it is important to realize it’s much more of a family oriented island. The people in the house next to you are probably owners and they don’t want you wrecking their community. Also, the property owners that rent out their houses are also incredibly diligent about making sure they don’t get rowdy partiers in their houses because they don’t want them stained with bachelor party debris.
Even with all these worries, we love Brigantine. It has some of the biggest, best houses, it’s a cab ride away from all of the greatest AC has to offer, and if you pass out on the porch because you can’t make it all the way into your house you’ll be safe. Just make sure that your party will respect the property and neighbors because if they don’t your great AC Bachelor Party will cost a LOT more in loss of security deposit and noise violations.

So you want to go fishing as part of your bachelor party in Atlantic City. Good thing you’re reading this because we’ll let you know what you’re in for and what to bring. Getting the guys of the bachelor party together for a day event is a great idea – and it fits into an overall bachelor party weekend perfectly. Plus, when you come home smelling like fish, you’ll have an excuse even though we all know it’s because of the 200 lap dances.
There are a couple great boats in the Atlantic City area to go out on and it mostly depends on how serious you want to be about the fishing itself. We love fishing and could take it seriously – but it’s a bachelor party so we recommend a simple party boat that fishes pretty close to where it takes off from for a four hour round trip. The Keeper is PERFECT. We love the captain, the mates always keep our bait fresh and pull the fish right off, and they love the idea of having bachelor parties on the boat.
What to Bring
You need to make sure you pay attention to a couple simple things when you take the bachelor party out fishing. Make sure you’re cooler is stocked with ice and beer, bring sunblock so you don’t get burnt and look retarted later on that night, and most of all – build in time to the schedule to shower afterwards. Don’t forget the cooler. After all, even the most dedicated fisherman needs beer at the bachelor party.
One more great idea for the bachelor party – keep one of the fish without the bachelor knowing. Seal it up tight in a bag and later on that night, throw it in his bed with him while he’s passed out. Don’t say we told you to do it.
