Rich Klingler from Bridgeport has created the ultimate Bachelor Party BBQ. Everything is completely catered for all of your bachelor party needs. I talked to Rich about his Bachelor Party BBQ.
DD: What made you concentrate on Bachelor parties?
RK: I have a pretty successful BBQ restaurant. A lot of my cliental are guys obviously. I threw a bachelor party for my son in law, and it was a legendary event. All of his buddies were asking me if I could plan their bachelor parties too. So eventually I was booked for months ahead of time. Now I basically have a second business.
DDL: Explain exactly what all comes in your bachelor party package?
RK: Well I start out with an amazing catered BBQ dinner for the whole crew. Ribs, pulled pork, mashed potatoes, corn, mac and cheese, and my specialty BBQ beef sandwiches. Then we bring the party to our 2000 square foot party room where we have open bar for 3 hours, and we even have a deal for entertainment. So it is really a one stop shop for everything. I also own the club next door, so we offer bottle service packages etc. Since I have the facilities, I figured why not take advantage of it.
DD: That sounds like a lot of fun. Let’s get back to the dinner portion of the event, because I understand that you set it up like a legit BBQ out on your huge patio.
RK: Yeah we have a great set up out there. And we even have games set up like bags, and beer pong. It is a lot of fun. I want it to be a completely unique experience without breaking these boys’ wallets. I think we have put together something that no one else can offer. We even have out Pig bus take them home if they get too drunk.
DD: Tell me about the poker tournament that you offer to the bachelor parties.
RK: That is something that is really fun. We started doing weekly poker tournaments at the restaurant, so it kind of just evolved from that. We were thinking of other options that we could offer for the Bachelor parties. So my son in law said that we should offer poker tournaments. We provide the dealers and everything. We just do it like any other poker tournament where we take a cut up front. We truly have something for everyone. I think that we have become the premiere Bachelor party destination.
DD: Tell me about this back room.
RK: 30 HD TV’s, and a lot of room for strippers, poker, or whatever other activities they have planned. We can also set up for karaoke, or have video games set up in the back room also. And all of our extra activities come with a spread of food. We are going to keep you full of food wherever you are in our facility.
DD: You have truly created a nice niche for yourself. Best of luck in the future!
