Stag Weekends.

Loved mine and loved everyone I’ve been on. 3 or 4 nights away with the lads on the piss taking in a match while away. Nowt better.
 
Last stag do I went on was a weekend in Benidorm. Load of lads who the groom was mates with from work/school/whatever who all got on. No issues and just constant drinking. Top that !!
 

OOOSH YEAH

Done Barca a few years back for one. Was class.
Moving bar to bar for 3 days. Went to the match. Spot on.
I love the place. It has absolutely everything you need for a weekend away. If I could choose anywhere to live in the world that would be number one. Not sure I could cope with going to games where the place you live actually won some games. They’d probably end up shit if I moved there. I’m reluctant to leave Newcastle for similar reasons.

Aye it’s superb, been wanting to get back with the wife.

Or just have different tastes. I like comfort too much. Hate sharing a room other than with a girl, like a proper nights sleep and like to do what I want and go where I want. I always feel restricted at these things. I realise not everyone will feel the same but we aren’t on here to all agree I genuinely enjoy reading what makes people tick.

You’re also restricted to not being able to take a woman back to your room for sex if you’re single and sharing as well.
:lol:
 
I didn’t have one for mine. Just went for a few pints with my mates. I was out with them the week after my wedding as well because nothing changed.

I organised one for my cousin who I was best man for. Went to Barcelona for three days. Went out together on the piss to whatever bars we fancied going in when we got there. Purposely planned the hotel so we were near places that me and him liked. No organisation other than hotel and flights. Apart from a few wanting to make a kitty and a few southerners going segwaying (ffs 😂) it was ok but I still swore I’m never doing it again.
I've got one to arrange shortly and I'm struggling. I'll end up doing similar to what you did though.

Anyone that doesn’t enjoy a stag weekend with their mates have made the wrong mates and have fucked up in life imo.
On the opposite end of the scale avoid any stag weekends with in-laws, work mates or mates of mates because because how much you try you’ll never enjoy them.

Exactly.

You get very little time with your pals once kids come along so embrace it.

Me and my mates are all late 30s now.
We still make an effort to do at least two lads weekends away a year without the woman/husbands/kids /jobs thing getting in the way.

All dayer every match day.

I'm getting to that age where mates are getting married for the first time so I've been on a few now. Some organised, others not. Cost a fortune but I've had a class time on all of them. When you get to an age where everyone's going about their own business, Stag weekends are a precious, rare event to reunite old mates.

There are always one or two who struggle, and the OP sounds like one of those. You should know what to expect. Either accept a Stag weekend for what it is and spend some quality time with your mates, or don't bloody turn up.
 
Good if you enjoy/ can drink all day but loads of people aren't like that.

I'm limited to 4-5 pints in a day from the docs so stretching that out over 10 hours is shite and boring. Any normal night out though and it's fine. I bet plenty of blokes don't fancy stags for similar reasons.

Did me first one last weekend. Went over to Dusseldorf, necked a load of pints, went up see a game, chatted some absolute shite then tried not to chun on the flight home.

Great weekend. Glad they don't happen often though as it near bankrupt me.
