Jimmy Kimmel Bachelor Party Details: Bike Rides, Champagne, Seafood
Before he ties the knot with longtime love Molly McNearney, Jimmy Kimmel wanted to have one last hurrah -- just north of the border. The late night talk show host and about 20 of his best buddies headed north to Vancouver for a bachelor getaway, sources tell Us Weekly.
The funnyman, 45, and his pals stayed at the Opus Hotel in Yaletown for the low-key weekend, which involved "more his hometown crew," including one of his oldest friends, comedian Jeff Ross, and former Man Show cohost Adam Carolla. Kimmel's many other celebrity friends were not in attendance, a source tells Us.
Kimmel and his crew hit several of the city's hot spots, including Dunn's Famous, a popular restaurant in the downtown area, where the group feasted on smoked meat sandwiches on Saturday, June 1.
"The restaurant is a landmark in town, very Canadian," another source tells Us. "The group was in great spirits -- people were drinking and having a great time. They were in a private area of the restaurant, so they had their section to themselves."
Earlier in the day, the men "did a bike ride around the sea wall" as well as a few walking tours. Kimmel looked like he had a "really good time," a third source tells Us. "The bike ride was really awesome, [and] they ended up at a food truck called Fresh Local Wild. The guy who runs the food truck did a spread for the group -- all local -- crab cakes, oyster sandwiches."
The entourage also enjoyed drinks at Pierre's Champagne and dinner at West Oak restaurant throughout the weekend.
Kimmel's fiancee, meanwhile, had her own bit of fun in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with her gal pals that same weekend, Us can confirm. The Jimmy Kimmel Live co-head writer had an earlier bachelorette party in St. Louis in April.
As for formal wedding plans, however, both Kimmel and his bride-to-be are hoping to keep the celebration intimate. "It'll be mostly a family affair and there will be a Catholic priest officiating," Kimmel explained to Us back in November 2012.
The couple have been dating since 2009 (Kimmel has two children with his first wife, Gina, whom he divorced in 2002 after 14 years of marriage.) They announced their engagement last August after Kimmel popped the question while the pair was vacationing in South Africa's Kruger National Forest.
