A party a man's friends throw for him before he gets married. There is often heavy drinking and/or strippers (i.e. all the things that he won't be able to enjoy once he's married.)
Two weeks after Tom and Becky's engagement, Tom's friends blindfolded him, threw him in the back of their car, and took him to Layla's Tongue Shop in downtown Harlem. Then next morning, still hungover, he thanked them for a great bachelor party.

A party lasting several days and nights that is thrown out of town by the grooms closest male friends, in 'honor' of the bachelor getting married. The groom celebrates things he won't be allowed to do once he is married some of them being entertained by attractive naked women, consuming large amounts of adult beverages, and acting in a manor that would never be displayed in front of his bride. A few of the essentials include: beer, hard alcohol, strippers, lap dances, hangovers, inappropriate conversation, questionable behavior, an air-tight 'bro-code', and an extremely annoyed bride-to-be who goes along with these charades lest she be 'old-fashioned, unsupportive, a stick in the mud,' or a 'bro-hater.' She is told by society that "this is a right of passage, or tradition that every groom is entitled to regardless of how she feels. So deal with it." What a great way to start off a marriage. It's simply an essential way to make your bride feel loved, respected, and cherished.
Did you hear about Todd's bachelor party? It's the night before his wedding and there's going to be a ton of women and alcohol.

An attempt by a man's friends to celebrate their bachelorhood by filling a weekend with as many vivid illustrations and experiences to make said man hyper-aware of all of the great things about bachelorhood that he will be giving up.
I can't wait to go to my bachelor party so all of my friends can have an awesome time doing all of things I can no longer do.
