Risky Business


This past weekend, fellow intern Sammi and I were asked to do something for someone. I know I'm being vague, but it was of an illegal nature and I don't want to add you to the lists of accomplices.

Okay, I'm talking about Accomplice: New York. Accomplice is part game, part theater, part tour. The combination of actors, a scavenger hunt, and running around New York City with nine other participants make for an unforgettable way to spend three hours of your afternoon. Now, I don't want to give anything away, but our adventure included delivering top-secret items all over lower Manhattan. One particularly strange drop-off item: a frog! (That's me and the creature in the photo.)

CNN and The New Yorker rave about Accomplice, and now this Modern Bride intern is too. If you're looking for a not-so-typical bachelorette party and you'll be in the New York City area, I would highly recommend Accomplice to you. There are two versions in NYC: Accomplice: New York, which weaves you through side streets and shady corners of lower Manhattan, and Accomplice: The Village, where you always need to do a double take to make sure no one is watching you in the packed Greenwich Village neighborhood. And now there's a LA version, which was co-produced by Neil Patrick Harris because he loved the NYC one so much.

Accomplice is popular: You need to book at least a month in advance. Private parties are welcome and if you explain it's for a bachelorette party, the creators will tailor the adventure for the bride and her friends. Groups of 10 or more can book private parties, and they recommend groups no larger than 15; prices for New York are $65 per person, the Village $55, and Hollywood $65. That's all I can say without getting you involved as an accomplice! —Jenna Frimmel, features intern, Modern Bride
