Here are some suggestions where the weaker player can still bang away at his best speed, and the stronger player (in this example is you) has to follow one or more of these restrictions. Playing straight up is too lopsided and the fun of playing quickly fades.
Last pocket - you must pocket the 8 ball in the pocket where you made your last bal, he plays normally.
Your friend picks the pocket for the 8 ball, after you sink your last ball, he plays normally.
Your friend picks 2 or 3 pockets on the table where you cannot pocket object balls. If you do, the ball stays down, but he gets ball in hand.
You must bank the 8 ball one or more rails to the called pocket to win, he plays it normally.
You play where the cue ball lies, he gets ball in hand for every shot (or every other shot).
You must shoot your balls in rotation, he can play his balls in any order.
You must call every shot, he can play slop.
As the games progress, the two of you modify the rules until you both have some kind of agreement that equalizes your skill levels. These are also good rules to use when you are playing a girlfriend/boyfriend (so that you are able to maintain good relations).
