There would have to be food, and lots of it. There would be go kart racing, and there would be sports and beer of course…

Planning a birthday party can be hard work. Unless you want to shell out a lot for a party, you may need to put some thought planning a party that is both awesome

  • SHHHH, the Previews Are Starting!

There is almost nothing better than eating some birthday cake and immediately running and jumping into the pool. Unfortunately, it is winter, and there is way too much snow on the ground. So what is just as fun as a pool party and way less dangerous? A movie party is the way to go. Sure, we all have sleepovers and watch tons of movies, but this is way different. There is something magical about being in a theater and watching the lights darken and the previews start. Now, depending on the age of your little ones, finding a movie that appeals to them and you could be difficult, but that is a big part of child parties anyway. My advice is to go see a Pixar movie if the opportunity presents. Almost everything they do is an instant classic.

Can we all agree that planning a birthday party for children is way more work than it should be? Despite the fact that kids are small, it takes a lot of effort to put together a great party.

Speed Raceway Is the East Coast King of Go Kart Racing

How to Throw a Great Party for Your Buddies: Take Them Go Kart Racing


How many of you have been to a party thrown by one of your friends where no one was having any fun? How many of you have been to more than one of these? How many times have you been at one of these parties and thought to yourself, “I could have easily thrown a better get-together than this.” I know I have been in that position tons of times. I have watched my friends get older. Some now even have kids. The sad truth is they are now going to use their subpar fiesta skills to throw parties for their children. I could idly sit by and watch them make mistakes when throwing parties for us, but I cannot watch them go on to ruin their children with a lifetime of disappointing birthdays. Luckily for me, I am now in a position to be able to save other people from making the same mistakes that many of my friends have made because I can tell you the very easy steps to throwing a great party, and I can clue you in to what private party location will blow your friend’s minds. Personally, I prefer taking my friends go kart racing, but there are plenty of other activities that your friends will probably enjoy.

Go Kart Racing Makes for a Sick Birthday Party


The best birthday I ever had was this year. I had nothing planned. I didn’t think I was going to do anything special. I didn’t think anyone realized. I remember being disappointed the week leading up to it. For the first time in many years, my birthday was on a Friday. For the past few years it has bounced around midweek days.  Maybe there was a Sunday somewhere in there, but the point is people either had to work or go to school the next day. There wasn’t a whole lot of room to party. This year, however, it could be different. This year, I thought, everyone is going to want to celebrate by doing something fun.
