Q: My buddy is getting married at the end of the month. I'm the best man, so I have to throw the bachelor party. Thing is, we're not really the type of men who go for typical bachelor party debauchery. What are some modern -- and still fun -- alternatives?

A: Fear not: You can avoid the kind of de-bachelor-ey party you may regret the next morning (or maybe longer) and still have more fun than flooring the gas pedal in a golf cart.

Try fly-fishing or salmon fishing at a place like the Ausable Wulff River in the Adirondacks. Don't own chest-high waders? No worries, most fishing spots offer lake and salmon fishing too. And while you're there, pick a cool camping ground nearby where your buddies can stay in either tents or cabins -- and of course, build a really big bonfire.

Too low-adrenaline for you? Consider formula car racing at a racing school. The pictures you'll get of the gang in full-length zip-up racing suits will be well worth it (photos you can actually show your girlfriend!).

Bottom line, think outside the box: Don't pshaw something like a dude ranch. And if you want to go simple and stay local, there's always a guys-only barbecue bash with all the fixin's.
