Packing List for Holiday Party Planning in March

Excuse us. We know we usually use this time to share smart ideas on destinations or industry news, but there’s so much going on next month that we are behind in our packing:

  • Red solo cups
  • All things green
  • Kegs and eggs
  • Dancing shoes
  • Basketballs
  • Pom poms
  • Pep band
  • Bathing suit
  • Beach towel
  • Sunscreen
  • Trashy novel
  • Legal ID

Okay, think that’s everything. Basically, there’s very little stopping the party this month. We’ll kick things off with the celebration of all things Irish that will have us waking up early to spike our coffee and pinch all those who fail to wear green. Then, it’s time to hit the court for the NCAA tournament. And, from start to finish the hottest beaches will be packed with Spring Breakers.

We have trained hard all through the holidays for March, and our livers are ready for a marathon, not a sprint. That being said we still have a bit more research before we can load up the spirits and suds.

Getting a bus charter is definitely the smart way to go ‘cause we know we’ll be drinking when we get there and this gives us a designated driver. It’s worth noting that consumption of alcohol onboard buses in the United States is not governed by a federal law like the airline industry. Instead, laws fall to each state or county in which we travel through, and in Canada, all drinking onboard buses is illegal. Because of these laws and bus company discretion, not all motorcoach operators allow alcohol on their buses. However, we can easily filter which companies do allow drinks onboard their vehicles by looking for a checkmark by “ALCH” within each operator’s fleet table profile.

But even if the profile checkmark says it’s good to go, we will need to check with your rental company on their policy. Getting hit with an extra fee for cleaning is something we’d rather plan for instead of getting it after the party has ended.

Now that this is settled, we need to break up a squabble over the iPod playlist. (No “Macrena,” thank you very much!)
