My buddy’s wedding is coming up. As his best man, it is my duty to plan his bachelor party.
I had to go through this process last summer when I was my other friend’s best man, so I know the drill. I had a few Philly bars in mind, so I found their websites and sent out a few e-mails.
Thank you for your inquiry. I am however going to need some further information from you. What did you have in mind for the party? Is your group going to be comprised exclusively of men or will there also be women attending?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
As I mentioned in the e-mail, there will be 10-20 of us (all men), and I was hoping to have a private section for us. I am willing to pay extra for our own server.
Anywhere in the club would most likely be fine, but we will probably be coming and going to the dance floor, etc.
I’d be happy to come in to discuss menus/prices.
Thoughts on how to tackle this one?! Got a response back all 20 people are dudes?!
I apologize, I meant to sent that email to my manager. Typically we don't do groups of 20 guys. Did you plan on doing bottle service? You never responded about what you had in mind for the party.
In hindsight, I suppose that it is a fairly odd request, having all of the guests of a bachelor party being men. I should have been more forthcoming.
Please accept my withdrawal from using your bar as a potential place for twenty "dudes" to dump a large quantity of money in a night of drunken celebration of our friend as he becomes betrothed to a member of the fairer sex, of which our party is regrettably void.
Please also accept my sincerest apologies for putting you in such a tough situation. If I were in your shoes, I imagine that I, too, would be at a loss as how to tackle such a situation and would undoubtedly seek the expertise of my manager.
Although, I most likely would have sent it to the correct person.
Additionally, I would have proofread my explanatory/apology e-mail to the customer, ensuring that I spelled his name (which happens to be the most common male name in America) correctly.
Again, I'm sorry for everything.
Mike (For your benefit, I used this shorter and easier-to-spell nickname)
P.S. If you could be so kind as to accidentally send me the message that you will undoubtedly send to your manager as a result of this e-mail, I would greatly appreciate it.
