Man Cave Recipes

Monday, October 7th, 2013

If you have even a small corner of your house that you can call your own, and you’ve been able to turn that space into a man cave – even if it is only furnished with a sofa, a TV and a pool table – consider yourself lucky. And invite all of your friends who aren’t quite so fortunate to enjoy a game with you.

To plan the perfect man-cave gathering, you’ll need a game schedule, some extra seating, a variety of drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and lots of food. While bags of chips and bowls of peanuts, as well as delivered pizza, will also work, consider preparing a few of our favorite man-cave recipes that are simple enough you won’t have to ask for help in the kitchen.

Pizza Rolls

You could buy the frozen ones, but if you’re looking for something a little more stylish, these are easy enough to make. All you need is pizza dough, sauce, cheese and your favorite meat topping. This video from Man Cave Meals will walk you through the process of making these delicious man-cave treats.

Nachos

These may be messy, but they are oh-so-delicious. Our favorite recipe starts with a sturdy taco chip of your choice. Then add nacho cheese, taco meat, black olives, jalapeños, onions, salsa, sour cream and guacamole. Pile the ingredients high. And be sure you have plenty of napkins on hand.

Beer Cheese Soup

While this one takes a little more prep time, you can leave it on the stove once it’s done, keeping it warm. You can go back for more whenever you want. The ingredients are simple enough: onion, a bottle of beer, Worcestershire sauce, flour, butter, chicken broth, mustard, and cheese. Learn how to make this recipe from Man Cave Munchies.

Popcorn on Demand

No man cave is complete (guests or no guests) without popcorn. We make it easy for you enjoy this treat with the Paragon Cineplex Popcorn Machine. Popcorn can be at the ready whenever you are ready to escape.

 

 

 

The Revival of Shuffleboard

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

It’s happening all over the country: Bars and clubs are installing shuffleboard tables, and people, anxious to play, are flocking to them. Even though the game has been around for decades, it is experiencing a sudden surge in popularity. In Florida, for example, the sport is becoming more popular than golf!

While shuffleboard began as a deck game, the table version is becoming a serious contender against pool tables and dart boards around the country, and it’s beginning to make its way into the man caves and game rooms of lucky homes as well.

Shuffleboard tables come in a variety of sizes that make it easier to choose one that will fit your space, and while it takes some time and effort to master the game, the challenge and enjoyment is infectious.

The International Shuffleboard Association was founded in St. Petersburg in 1979. The club, whose members play the deck form of the game, struggled to maintain membership, dropping to 35 members in 2005 after seeing a peak of 8,000 members in the late 40s. Now membership has spiked to 200 and continues to grow. The 2013 World Shuffleboard Singles Championship will be held at the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club in late October 2013.

Whether you’re brushing up on your game, to attend the championship, or just can’t get enough of shuffleboard in your neighborhood, consider one of the fine shuffleboards available at eFamilyFun, such as the Playcraft Woodbridge Shuffleboard Table in Honey Oak, available in 9’, 12’, 14’ and 16’ lengths and qualifies for free shipping. It makes a perfect addition to your  man cave or game room; it also can be a draw for your club or bar.

Creating the Perfect Man Cave in Time for the Holidays

Monday, August 26th, 2013

Christmas is – quite literally – just around the corner. And it’s time to update your wish list now with the things you would like to adorn your man cave with this holiday season. Here’s a primer to help get you started:

Every man cave should begin with a comfortable chair. This chair needs to be your friend, as you will likely spend a great deal of time watching games here and even dozing here. A Big Daddy leather recliner that sports your favorite NFL team, such as this Miami Dolphins recliner, is a great start to your man cave. Accompanied by a matching pub table, it’s all you need (besides a big-screen TV) to get your room off to a good start.

Now that you’ve covered your comfort needs, it’s time to get serious about fun. Your man cave is your escape – the perfect place to head during the crazy holiday shopping season. From poker to pool to shuffleboard, we have the high end game tables you need to furnish your room in style. The Playcraft Southport pool table is an ideal addition, as is the PlayCraft Venture Shuffleboard table with a customizable length.

 

And when you’re on your own and there’s no game on, your man cave would benefit greatly from a pinball machine like the AC/DC Pro to the space.

Finally, to add a finishing touch to your man cave and really create some style, add a lamp that shows off your favorite basketball team such as this New York Knicks shade bar lamp. And, because no man cave is complete without music, add a jukebox like the Nostalgic Bubbler to the room and create some atmosphere.
