Making a Man Cave in your Garage

Every man needs a man cave; a place to relax and unwind with the boys. However, unless you have a spare room in your home, you are probably thinking that your dreams of your perfect man cave will go unfulfilled. However, all is not lost if you have a garage! Here are a few ideas to get you started with turning your garage into your personal slice of heaven.

Have some Casino Fun!

There really is nothing better than having a friendly game of poker with your buddies. Once you have gotten your man cave fitted out with everything you need, why not consider adding a poker table and a slot machine? You can have some proper casino fun with the boys without having to worry about traveling to a casino and spending a fortune! There are some great deals to be found online.

Install a Bar

No man cave is complete without the addition of a well stocked bar. Drinks optics can be purchased online for some very reasonable prices these days. Keep your bar stocked and everyone will want to head to your man cave over a night out on the town.

Get a Sound Bar

If you want to make sure that you and your friends are kept entertained, then one thing that is definitely worth considering is a sound bar. Again, these can be purchased online for a fairly reasonable price. Once you have it set up, you can enjoy music whilst playing poker.

Get a Games Console

It doesn’t have to be the latest model at all, in fact, retro gaming is often more fun! Purchase a games console for your man cave and you and your friends will have hours of fun.

These are just a couple of suggestions, the great thing about turning your garage into a man cave is that you have the freedom to make it whatever you want it to be!

What Do With Car Wi-Fi?

With modern technology getting better and better, it is now possible to make your own car into a personal Wi-Fi hotspot or with Internet connectivity. Both options are easy to set up, with a hotspot just needing the use of a good data plan and a smartphone. 4G options simply need a dongle and this will stay in your car at all times and potentially save you money in the long run, though they won’t connect to the car’s systems. Some modern cars even have Wi-Fi integrated already, making it even easier to stay connected.

Whatever method you choose, car Wi-Fi, of course, has its pros and cons. We will start with the cons. The first thing to bear in mind is passenger and driver safety. In most countries, it is illegal to drive whilst holding a mobile device. Having Wi-Fi and getting messages can be distracting and potentially dangerous for all in the car. It is therefore important to have a hands free device if you are the driver. For passengers, of course, there is no such problem.

Onto the pros. Having constant Wi-Fi access means that you are instantly accessible by everyone, it also means that you can stay abreast of everything that is going on in the world whether it is latest headlines, weather reports, or, of course, traffic news. Car Wi-Fi is the perfect solution to avoiding those tiresome tailbacks on the way to work. If, heaven forbid, you are caught in one, then with Wi-Fi access, you can hop onto your favourite online gaming site and play a few rounds or spin a few slots whilst you wait for the traffic to clear.

Whatever you use the car Wi-Fi for, it is important to remain safe at all times. Passengers should not distract drivers with the latest entertaining post and likewise, drivers need to refrain from checking their phone whilst on the move.
