Default 40th Birthday ideas

Just looking for your assistance as it is my friends 40th birthday in the New Year and we were looking to do something low key but fun for him in the south. A lot of us have kids so something that gets us out for a bit but also keeps his co-workers who range in the age between 25-50 entertained, my friend lives in Acadia so we wanted something in and around there if possible. People will be bringing wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends so it will be a mix of people and ages.

Thanks in advance for any tips, you guys & gals are always my go to for tips!

Really good idea. Mountain View Bowling updated their lanes a while back, solid facility with really good electronic score boards. Factor in glow in the dark bowling/booze for tons of fun.

You just can't go wrong with bowling for fun and laughs. The fun extends into the following day when everyone has one really soar leg and butt cheek.

We held a funeral and a wake for one friend when he turned 40. For the funeral he had to lie in a carboard coffin that we made for him and play dead while all of his friends when up and gave eulogies about his life being over when he hit 40.

Then we had the equivalent of an Irish wake after words and he was allowed to come back to life.

Actually the eulogies were pretty hilarious, and the poor guy was in the coffin half drunk out of his mind trying to keep a straight face.

Sunterra Market hosts cooking classes. They lead, you make and cook, and then you eat. They will host private parties and cater to what you want.
