It's Time to Raise a Glass 

Where's your penis straw?

Everyone's seen it: a group of ladies out on the town, one of them wearing a condom-covered veil and all of them drinking out of penis straws, seemingly having a riotously fabulous time. What you don't see is that the veil-wearer has been a holy terror for the past few months while she's planned her wedding, nor can you usually sense the quiet disdain of all who are participating in this charade of a good time, known more formally as a "bachelorette party." But there's good news in all of this: You don't have to have an actual buzz-killing bride to take part in such an affair, and there needs to be no boring wedding on your horizon for you to avail yourself of the humor of the penis straw. All you have to do is show up at Molly's (816 Geyer Avenue; 314-241-6200) at 7 p.m. tonight in your best bride-to-be attire and be ready to hit the town. This Soulard bar is the kickoff point for the Ultimate Bachelorette Bus Party & Scavenger Hunt, during which everyone is the betrothed, so behavior is expected to be inappropriately awesome, and actual fun is guaranteed. This pub crawl is a fundraiser for Fuel, a group that provides volunteers for various goings-on in the city. To learn more and to sign up beforehand (recommended), visit The evening out will cost you $25 — but there's no future wedding-gift requirement.
