I am throwing a couples party for a friend's upcoming wedding. I was originally just planning on having it at my house, but then I thought it might be more fun to have it else where. I was thinking maybe a restaurant with a party room, or maybe even something like bowling or Dave & Buster's. Does this sound silly? The couples will be mostly in their mid to late 20s. I grew up in San Antonio, but have been in the Houston area for the last 10 years and recently moved back home, so I am not that familiar with what 20-somethings do here in town.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/comments.

I think bowling for D&B would be fun but I'm a total goofball.

Depending on how many people you are inviting, a really fun idea is to have a cocktail cruise on one of the River barges. We did that once for a small engagement party and it was a blast. Because it's cocktails and not dinner, you can fit substantially more people on the barge, but of course not as many as you could have at Dave and Busters, which would also be fun.

ETA: per the website, the boats fit 30 for cocktails and 40 for just a cruise. You could do the cruise and then go to Swig or Howl at the Moon for drinks afterwards.

Eat in Sunset Station....then go to the Cameo and watch the play....you can get liquored up there as well, and then head back in to DT and hit up any of the wonderful bars...you will not be disappointed at the Cameo.

GREAT idea! I've been on cocktail cruises before and it's loads of fun.

Is this a shower? The cruise sounds great but if it is a shower you should think about arrangements for gifts.

If you do just the cruise with rio San antonio cruises the price is 115 after 5pm. A dinner cruise is much pricier I would think at least 25 pp. Do you have a budget and are you set on downtown?

Thanks for the suggestions. The couple lives near New Braunfels, but they are willing to travel. I do not have a guest list or budget... just trying to come up with ideas. I don't think we'll be collecting any gifts, so that should not be an issue.

On the bowling idea, growing up, Bandera Bowl was the nicest, but that's just because it was the newest. Where's the nicest bowling alley now?

If they live in New Braunfels, I would suggest the Grist Mill in Gruene. They have several rooms that can be made private and you can head to Gruene Hall afterwards for drinks and live music.
