Boisterous Bachelorette

Last weekend I celebrated bachelorette party 2.0 This one was the one held in-town (the other one, if you recall, was in Seabrook), which meant that more people could attend. While 1.0 was planned entirely by my lovely friends, 2.0 was planned by me.

The first activity was a drag show at a local restaurant. La Faux is, according to their website, the longest running celebrity impersonation show in Seattle. It’s very high energy and fun and is definitely a really popular destination for Seattle bachelorette parties.

There were nine of us who made it out for dinner and the show: MOH Tart, Officiant J, BM Hot Buns, Cakewalk, Classmate J, BM Apple Pie, Friend A, me (of course), and BM Fro-Yo.

Dinner ends at approximately 9:00pm, at which time they request that you line up outside so they can change from dining room to auditorium. Because we went for dinner (and not just for the show, which is totally possible) we were able to access “dinner priority” seating, which I think was a great balance of the ticket price levels (of which there are three). We were able to sit in the middle of the room and we had a great view.

The show itself was great and we spent most of the time singing and dancing in our seats. If you end up going to La Faux, be sure to bring cash (dollar bills work great) so you can tip the performers.

After La Faux, we lost some of group (but gained someone new) as we moved to Rock Box, a Japanese-style karaoke bar. Six of us ended up singing karaoke and I discovered that several of my friends are vocally talented!

It was a great way to continue the energy from the show and I hardly even noticed that it was after midnight (quite impressive since I tend to go to bed pretty close to 10:00pm every night).

Pretty much all of us sang to whatever song was on and I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I wrecked my throat singing Wannabe by the Spice Girls (not ashamed that I sang it, but ashamed that I forgot my theater training and sang improperly). That did not stop me, however, and I definitely performed the rest of my songs to the best of my abilities.

The whole night was a blast but I would definitely say the karaoke portion was my favorite. I even have video evidence of my exploits – Apple Pie recorded me singing/rapping to Macklemore’s Thrift Shop. Sparky got a kick out of that video when I sent it to him (he was in Portland, OR for his bachelor party).

I am very lucky to have so many amazing people in my life and I felt very celebrated and loved throughout the night. I definitely recommend both La Faux and Rock Box for Seattle brides looking for bachelorette locations—we were able to relax and have fun but nothing got too crazy or out of hand. It was all pretty reasonably priced, too!

What did you do for your bachelorette party?

    Glad to see someone else practicing the ancient art of Karaoke at their stagette! That’s the only request I put in for mine, because I have never done it before. Also, the drag show looks awesome! What celebrity performances did they do?

    Plleeaassee tell me you ended the night with hot dogs (with cream cheese and onions, of course)!! I had nearly the exact seem Bachelorette party (we went to Lashes @ R Place instead of Le Faux) and there’s nothing better than street hot dogs after a night of insanity. :)

    I may be biased from living in Japan for so long, but you can’t go wrong with karaoke!
