    Birthday Ideas

    well folks... you have been helpful with everything else so I figured what the heck I might as well see if I could get any cool ideas from you.

    A friend of mine is turning 18. We just broke up but are still friends. One of her best friends and I want to do something really special for her birthday. It is during the week so our surprise party idea is kind of out. What would be memorable, and cool?

    Any ideas would be appreciated. We are drawing blanks.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Are you talking about a gift or an event?

    Are you talking about what to get her? Or what to do for her birthday?

    Something to do. Granted it won't just be us. It would be including her best friend too that is why I am thinking a group of people doing something...

    One of the best parties I went to (B'Day Party) was a beach party, we had a huge bonfire and was so mad. Had a huge cookup, plenty of grog and then we all just passed out and slept on the beach. There were about 20 of us.

    I don't know where Madison, WI is so I don't know if this helps.

    I don't know what your area is like, or what interests your friend...perhaps she may like this idea...

    But I know that one thing that has always intrigued me (and I've always wanted to see) is a Broadway musical - whether it be actually at Broadway or on tour locally.

    My intrigue/interest has expanded so much over the years that I'm getting ready to shell out nearly $200 (super good seating) to go see "The Lion King" when it comes to Denver's Buelle Theatre...it will be my first time seeing such an event so it will be well worth the money. (I hear you can get tickets for as low as $45, but since this is an actual Broadway musical, a regular musical put on locally would probably cost much less).

    I'm guessing you must have some sort of center for the performing arts in your area (closest one to me is only an hour away) so you might consider that. Some chicks dig that sort of thing.

    As far as other ideas, how about a gool ol' night on the town? Never fails...

    That's all for now.

    i dont know how much you want to spend, but maybe get her .com, .net or .org with a month or 2 of hosting. at some places it could cost less than $30.

    yeah she isn't into computers and the internet... I told her I would register that domain and even host it for free so she could let the world know who she is and she laughed at me

    Thanks...

    oh well... the list I compiled while watching a football game last night consits of the following:
    • University Women's BasketBall Game (since they are playing that night)
    • dinner and movie - wondering if that is a good idea since that was our favorite dating activity...although it will be a group of people.
    • surprise party just hold it on the weekend since her birthday is on a wed.
    • Comedy Sportz club- its a comdey club
    • and of course we have to keep in mind RKuhle's idea from above...
    • Concert if we could find one that day.


    I think I am passing the ball to her best friend now, she can pick what we do...this brainstorming is too hard...

    Thanks for all the ideas,
    Dan

    I think a show is a fantastic idea. Maybe dinner and a show, or a show and drinks after. I always come out buzzing after a show. The best I have ever seen is CATS, which I was lucky enough to see in The Winter Garden on Broadway when I was in New York a few years back. Maybe you can buy her the show CD afterwards or a t-shirt or something.

    Then take "your" ladies out for lunch. After that drop them back off at HOME!! (so they can wash up and get MADE UP)

    This is when you purchase a few bottles liquor (knowing her favorite drink!) Stash that away for later.

    NO matter, give her a hollowed out coconut with Pina Coloda inside and put a Hawaiian thingy around her neck before you all start "the party"!"

    I like the CONCERT idea! Try to hook that up first, if their isn't a good show that day the Comedy club is sounding sweet. Then it's off to one of your cribs so you can get half in the bag.
