Yesterday was my husband Eric's birthday and instead of buying him a present I planned a day of fun for him. I surprised him with a trapeze class with Richie Gaona at his elaborate trapeze set up in his backyard in Woodland Hills. It was adrenaline fueled fun and athletic Eric was a natural at flying! After swinging through the air on the flying trapeze we headed up to MalibuFamily Wines for a picnic and wine tasting.
For the bachelorette or bachelor party that has to stay local and short (as in, no 3 day cruise to Ensenada or weekend in wine country) this trapeze class would be a fun and bonding experience for you and your crew.
Granted, you probably won't be able to re-catch the bar on your first lesson like Eric did because he has unreal ninja-like skillz, but you'll love the feeling of flying and cheering your friends on. Just don't do this within a few days of an important event where you have to walk gracefully (ahem, wedding) as your calve muscles will be so sore you'll hobble. It was worth it though!
Now I'm of to join the circus....
Eric's mad skills
