Guys, do you have a place that you can call your own?
No, not the bathroom.
We’re talking about a Man Cave!
A Man Cave is a dedicated area, such as a basement, bonus room, garage, or even a free standing shed, where a man can retreat for quiet time or party time with the buddies.
The distinguishing feature of the Man Cave is that it is designed (and decorated) by the man and for the man – basically all of the things that the woman in your life refuses to have in the rest of the house can be found in the Man Cave.
It is a place where you might find things like a poker table, sports memorabilia, video games, or even a personal keg-o-rator.
The possibilities are endless!
How popular are Man Caves?
The Man Cave is popular enough to warrant its own television show on the DIY Network (which my cable package does not offer) hosted by Jason Cameron and ex-NFL football player Tony Siragusa. Together they offer ideas and do-it-yourself plans to turn your own space into an official guys hangout.
There is even an Official Man Cave Site featuring a Cave Gallery and information on how to make your Man Cave the place that you want it to be.
What would you want in a Man Cave?
The important thing is that the Man Cave is what you want it to be.
After coming home Friday night to a house full of children
bouncing off the walls enjoying a Camp Rock party, I could have really used a Man Cave of my own and have started a rough plan of what mine will look like.
Do you have your own Man Cave?
Here is your chance to show off and let all the other guys drool over your Man Cave. Send me a few photos and a brief description of your Man Cave to be featured here on The Man Page.
