I'm looking for unique ideas for a birthday celebration. I'm hoping to branch out from just dinner or drinks, but would still be open to a restaurant if the experience was something different. It's for a girl in her late 20's in Toronto.

I've never done it, but have heard of the idea and it sounds like fun! I don't know of any spas that hold group functions, but there must be some. If not, you could just book for a large group of people in advance. The only problem with this idea is it's not exactly male-friendly...

I recommended this to someone else having a bachelorette party ....Fuzion resto-lounge used to (not sure if they are still doing this or if it's seasonal) have martini and manicure parties available...they are literally drinks and manicures/pedicures.
Then of course, pole dancing parties.....they can be fun with friends, I have been to great and not so great pole dance parties.
What about movies? There are some great movies out and one option some theaters offer is the VIP theater. They cost a bit more but you actually have nicer seats and there are waiters/waitresses and alcohol available.
Dave and Busters? Ice skating? Dancing?

What about a sleepover? Rent a nice hotel suite and have all the girls over for a silly night in! Or something that is reminiscent of days gone by - rollerskating, video dance party, etc - the kind of things we used to do...
Another activity that's gaining momentum is a home cooking party. Either you all cook together to a planned menu or you hire a gourmet chef to come in and give a cooking lesson.
Yes, these are mostly girly ideas... Is this in fact a girly party, or will it be mixed?
|Mixed Up Menu on Mar 01, 2010 @ 05:32 pm|
If you decide to do it at home and want to spice up a normal dinner or potluck try "Mixed Up Menu". It was my favorite thing to do as a kid and now we have been doing it for all kinds of parties and it always gets an awesome reaction. Here is an example...what you do is write out your menu:
Favorite Messy Appetizer
Then whatever the person is really in to (the last one we did was golf themed) you write out common terms for it Bunker, 9 Iron, Fore, Tee.....you get the idea...and match it up with the menu items. Give the menu to all your guests WITHOUT the actual food dishes on it. They order three dishes per course and have no idea what they are getting. So you could end up with ice cream, a knife and spaghetti for your first course! It's pretty funny to watch people attempt to eat during these parties ...always good for a laugh!

thanks for all of the tips! I'm really excited now :) I'm going to see if we can do a spa day or the martini/manicure party.
