We make it a complete "Guy's Weekend" where we can leave the women and children at home. We've done fishing trips and golf trips. We've even gone to Chicago and Vegas. And we usually hold the draft in a meeting room at the hotel we stay at on Saturday night, often with our very own bartender on site.
In addition, we usually offer extra draft picks to keep us all in the gambling spirit. For example, during the golf outting, the winner was awarded an extra draft pick in round 9 (while the loser had to fetch beer all weekend long). We have similar competitions with our March Madness Brackets and NCAA Bowl Games Pool, offering extra draft picks as incentives - keeping us involved even in the Fantasy Football Hell known as the off-season.
