Merrillville, IN (PressExposure) April 08, 2009 -- Whereas your father might not have cared about sprucing up the workshop for company, todayâs caveman, with the NHL Playoffs coming up, might want to upgrade their sanctuary before inviting other cavemen and their better halves.
DirectBuy, the leading home improvement and furnishings club with direct insider prices, has some pointers for making the man cave guest-friendly for the upcoming NHL playoffs and beyond.
âWhile being able to get away from the rest of the house and watch sporting events like the NHL playoffs in peace may have been the genesis of the man cave, what might not have been taken into consideration initially was the desire to someday invite others to watch the game with you. And setting up a space fit for entertaining guests is something a lot of men may want some assistance with,â said Regis Girard, owner of DirectBuy of Ottawa.
So what items might todayâs cave-gent need to complete the perfect hockey-watching party?
