You need to see this email, sent by the best man.
I got this months ago. Read it. Appreciate it. You have to love the sense of mystery, style, and adventure. Also, and maybe best of all, you have to love the fact that everything is taken care of and planned. No group decisions. No chaos-by-committee. This guy isn’t fu$king around.The bachelor party itself? I just got back. Still processing. Still dazed. Still blown away. I’ve been to many, many, many bachelor parties in my day. They’re almost all for lifelong-best-friends, so I don’t want to make a Sophie’s Choice and say which one is “best.” I love hanging out with my friends, period, regardless of context. But in terms of sheer originality, adrenaline, audacity, bucket-list-items-checked-off, and wow-factor, this one takes the cake.
Hello All –
If you are reading this email, it is because you are invited, along with a privileged few, for the premiere event of 2010. On April 16th, Tom will be having his one-and-only Bachelor party, in anticipation for his marriage/funeral, yada yada, yada. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Rob and as Tom’s best man, I’ve been put in charge of organizing his bachelor party and believe me when I tell you it’s gonna be amazing. Here’s what you need to know.

Number 1: Space is Limited
Due to the uniqueness of this bachelor party, only eight of Tom’s close friends will be able to attend. And because there’s no way for him to fairly select eight friends, it is on a first-to-confirm basis. Of course he wants all of you to attend, but he especially wants those of you who REALLY want to attend. So here’s what else you need to know in order to make your decision.
Number 2: Attendance is All or Nothing
The bachelor party will begin the Friday afternoon of April 16th and end the evening of April 18th. There will be no late admittance, or joining midway, or leaving midway. Attendance is all or nothing.
Number 3: $425 Covers Everything
There is a fee of $425. This will cover EVERYTHING for the weekend. Tom doesn’t want cost to be a factor in your decision, and frankly if you can’t raise $425 in 4 months, he’ll understand. There is one exemption to the $425 cost. If you are flying in from out of state, your $425 fee is waived and you can put it towards the cost of your plane ticket.

Number 4: 5 Star Hotel Not Included
The weekend will begin and end in Los Angeles, and in the spirit of the element of surprise, that’s pretty much all I’m going to tell you for now. I will say that this weekend would be classified as an “Outdoors” type weekend. No, it’s not camping, but it’s not a 5-star hotel either. If you’re not a fan of the elements, Tom will understand.
Number 5: You’re Either In or You’re Out
Once you confirm, and I’ve received your check for $425, I can give you more details about what you’ll want to bring, and any travel arrangements you may need to make. Finally, there is one rule we will all have to abide by during the weekend: This is Tom’s Bachelor party and therefore it’s all about him. If you have any hesitation about that, or if you don’t think you’ll be able to commit 100%, Tom will understand. But once you commit, you commit to the whole 9 yards.
If you can agree to all the conditions above, please let me know immediately. Reply to this email as soon as you’ve made a decision either way. Remember, it’s a first-to-reply booking. There’s a lot of planning involved here so I’d like to have everyone’s names confirmed ASAP. I guarantee you will enjoy yourselves. This is gonna be a good one.
The story of the weekend itself is a long one. It will be written. Stay tuned.
