Bachelorette party ideas in downtown Troy?

troy riverfront park green island bridge winterChristine asks via Twitter:

[B]est downtown troy activities for a bachelorette type event? @CapCtyBrewCycle is weather dependent!
[A]bout 14 ladies, low key, starting around 3 on a Saturday in late November. Possible dinner upstairs at @GetRuckedTroy

Got an idea for Christine and her friends? Please share!

If some of your participants are available earlier in the day, I suggest booking some appointments at the White Sands Spa on Broadway. We booked two massages and two mani-pedis for the morning of my party, then walked to the Whistling Kettle for brunch.

If you don't want to rely on the Brew-Cycle, then you could rent a limo or have some people be your DDs and plan your own bar crawl. That would be pretty awesome.

Last year, my friend Rachel had her bachelorette party at Dinosaur BBQ. I was thinking it would be a bust, but I had a blast. A table was reserved for dinner (about 20 people), and then we danced to Ill Funk Ensemble for a few hours. After, we walked to Brown's and took over the jukebox.

Another suggestion would be to go to the Malt Room near Brown's. Leather couches, classy environment, great bartenders.

Could make a pub crawl out of it with stops at Whistling Kettle, The Confectionery, and the 2nd floor of the Ruck.

I 2nd the suggestion of White Sands

Also check out Sweet Sue's. She will do private events and does an excellent job with detail and attention.

Hi! A couple of years ago a bachelorette party booked a dance lesson at my studio Troy Dance Factory before going out on the town. They wanted to learn a routine in a style I coined "Chairlesque" (essentially a sassy jazz and burlesque-inspired dance with chairs), and they LOVED it! The piece was custom-choreographed to a song they knew the bride-to-be would love. Feel free to e-mail me at info@troydancefactory.com if this is something you might like to do. We can also do hip-hop bachelorette parties, etc. Have fun! :)

I did a "Paint and Sip" at someone's house, and doing that at the Confectionary would be fun...I see on their FB page that they have them from time to time.

I am very glad they are moving the bus stop back from the Armory to the Library. The number of near misses from folks turning onto Washington Ave is frightening. I am also happy to hear a mid-block crossing is being installed. There are waaaaay to many people walking down the middle of a 4 lane road not paying attention, hopefully this will give them a safer, faster, path to the other side.
