Retirement party ideas

My dad is retiring and I'm brainstorming ideas for his party in July. I have seen a few ideas online like James Bond casino party, texas bbq party, "things that don't work" theme.  Has anyone been to a creative retirement party? Any ideas?  The requirements: must include alcohol, must have some "activity" (vs. just eating and sitting around).

Re: Retirement party ideas

  • What does your dad like to do?  What was his profession?  If he enjoys gambling casino night would be fun.  If he's a golfer set up little putting greens.  For a fisher you could do a wading pool where people "catch fish" (think carnival game).  You could do some sort of Jeopardy game with questions about his career or life. 

     I'm not one for games, but these are things people could easily opt out of if the wanted to just spend time talking.
