    stag party/night

    stag party; stag night
    I wonder if there is any difference in meaning between AmE and BrE.
    Thank you.

    not sure but I bet the Americans have more fun.

    PS:

    to go stag = go by yourself
    to go drag = take a date

    We use both in the UK. We also have stag weekends, etc, depending on how debauched people want to get.

    Do you say "Come stag or come drag" too? Or is that an Americanism?

    Hi,
    never heard of `come drag`...which raises thw question if in `drag´would one not call it a `hen party´...what are they like in the US and are they called that?

    That isn't something I've heard- drag to us is cross-dressing.
