I was never a fan of the term "man cave". It's like "metrosexual", one of those made up marketing terms forced on us, to get us to buy stuff. But it's been growing on me. Especially since Tony Siragusa stars on a DIY Network show called "Man Caves." If it's good enough for The Goose, I guess I can live with it.
And my friends over at MyBadPad.com
have put together a collection of 12 of the best man caves they could find. Some guys dropped a lot of coin building them, some did seriously cool stuff on a budget. But either way, they are rooms you could pop open a beer in, and escape the daily stress of work, bills and family.
Rooms that, besides the requisite flat screens, bar, beer fridge and recliner, add features like an indoor driving range, video arcade, rock climbing walls, and a 6 x 6 stage complete with stripper pole. (If you need me, I'll be at that guy's place this weekend.)
Some choice pics are below, but for the full story and photos, and for inspiration to build your own, head over to www.MyBadPad.com
