Howard asked Artie how he was feeling since he stopped drinking. Artie responded he was great and that it had been about 64 days since his last drink. Gary wanted to know if Artie struggles every day or if it just gets to him during certain situations. Artie said Ross Zapin is having another bachelor party (that makes 3, if you're keeping track) this weekend, but he probably wouldn't go because of the temptation to drink. He added he will be attending Ross' wedding, because Dana will be there which will take off some of the pressure. Howard mentioned that Ross' bachelor party is at Scores, and there would be enough going on to make Artie forget about drinking. Artie admitted Scores is the one place where he thought he could be distracted from drinking, but he still didn't think he would go. Gary talked about how he has to miss this bachelor party as well. He said that he went to Ross' last party in Las Vegas, and ended up spending close to $2,700 in the process.
Artie didn't understand the new fad of having bachelor parties in Las Vegas, especially when the guys throwing the bashes can't afford it themselves. He added when people have been drinking, there's no difference between Las Vegas and the Knights of Columbus.
