  • The Great Horror Campout

    header-image-logoIt's almost halloween but that doesn't mean that horror season is almost over. In fact, one of the coolest and freakiest events I have ever come across is still a few months away!

    The Great Horror Campout is held every year in the Los Angeles State Historic Park and it certainly takes "camping" to a completely new level!

  • JW Marriott Denver Metro Man’s Getaway

    header-jw-marriot-denver-logoEvery man deserves some good old fashioned guy bonding time and Denver is a great spot for that. With a great airport, and plenty of fresh air and year-round sports activity it is hard to go wrong here.

    What you may not know is that Denver itself is a world class city prepared to entertain gentlemen that have moved beyond cheap draft beer and hot dogs. Instead, the JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek is inviting men who have moved on from those days to indulge in a vacation replete with smooth whiskey and a decadent dinner with their new Metro Man’s Getaway.

  • 5 Man-tastic Features Aboard the Norwegian Breakaway

    norwegian breakaway reviewNorwegian Cruise Lines is known for their vibrant entertainment, plentiful activities/dining options, and energetic atmosphere, and the Norwegian Breakaway offers the best of each. After attending a 2-Day Pre-Inaugural cruise onboard the Breakaway last week, I can confidently say that this ship caters to the manlier side of cruising very well.

    Read on for our review of some great mancation features on Norwegian Breakaway!

  • Myrtle Beach Mancation and Guys Weekend Adventure

    When someone says they are going to Myrtle Beach, I automatically think Golf. Wow, was I wrong. Myrtle Beach has so much more to offer than I ever thought.  Between paddle boarding, NASCAR, craft beer, sushi, steaks, and shooting lessons, Myrtle Beach is a great place for a mancation.

    It is also certainly a lot more than just a great golf destination!

  • Maison Dupuy French Quarter Hotel in New Orleans

    Maison Dupuy is located in New Orleans' French Quarter, just two blocks away from Bourbon Street and walking distance to pretty much any place you might want to visit in the French Quarter.

    While it is the newest hotel to be built in the French Quarter (1973), it manages to convey a classic elegance that its much older neighbors do - without some of the weirdness of uneven floors and crooked windows that come from being housed in buildings that are in some cases hundreds of years old.

  • Jazz Brunch at Court of Two Sisters

    While many people associate New Orleans with some of the best parties in the world, the other "Must Do" in New Orleans is brunch. While there is no shortage of great places where you can gorge on delicious traditional brunch foods, I would like to heartily recommend stopping by Court of Two Sisters.

    Between the gorgeous courtyard, tons of great food (traditional breakfast as well as cajun and southern staples like crawfish, jambalaya, and collards), there is something for everyone! Plus they have some of the friendliest staff in town.

    Are you in New York and looking for an excuse to escape to the islands for a few days of R&R? Norwegian Cruise Lines' new ship, Breakaway promises to deliver some fantastic new opportunities.

  • Jack Binion's Steak House at Horseshoe Casino Hammond

    There are TONS of steak houses in Chicago and many of them are quite excellent so sometimes the differentiating factor is simply the "total package".

    As such, when I had the chance to check out the new menu at Jack Binion's Steak House inside the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana (a short drive south of Chicago) I was excited for the opportunity.

  • Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas Review

    For this trip review, we decided to try the Freedom of the Seas. It isn't the newest or largest ship in Royal's fleet but it certainly had some fun "Designed for Wow" features that others simply don't, so let's start exploring.

  • Sandals Montego Bay Review

    Heather and I had a wonderful time at Sandals Montego Bay and heartily recommend it to anyone looking for an escape to one of the most fantastic islands in the Caribbean. Sometimes it is tough to select an all inclusive as EVERYTHING can look fantastic from a tourism brochure or website. That's why it is tough to pick a resort sometimes. However, I am THRILLED to say that Sandals is still awesome, even almost ten years after we stayed in their sister property in Ocho Rios for our honeymoon.

  • Mancation like Obama at Floridian Golf and Yacht Club

    header-imageSometimes we all need a mancation, and apparently being the President of the United States is no exception.

    This week, Obama spent a few days away from Michelle and the kids golfing at the Floridian Golf and Yacht Club with pros like Tiger Woods and others. How does that compare to your latest golf mancation?

     

     

  • Annual Guys Trip to Jackson Hole

    header-imageAbout 19 years ago, a group of high school buddies and I started taking ski trips, and for the past 10 years or so, our guys ski trip has grown into an annual event that most of us never miss.

    Over the years, a few new guys have been added to the ski trip; a friend from college and one guy who married his way into the group – his wife is a good friend of ours from high school. She’s never been invited on the trip, but he makes the trip every year.

  • Gulf Shores Alabama Golf Guys Weekend

    New Orleans and Florida's West Coast aren't the only mancation destinations awaiting you on the Gulf Coast!

    30A Song Writers FestivalIf you’re a songwriter then the 30A Festival is for you.  Likewise, if you’re a fan of quality music and songs, then the 30A festival is for you. 

    The 30A Songwriters Festival is not, as some would interpret from the name, exclusively for songwriters.  It’s more of a 3 day party that happens Jannuary 18-20 along the South Walton Beach area in Florida.  

  • Daytona Preseason Thunder starts the 2013 Sprint Cup Series

    header-image-daytona-thunderTo some guys the start of a new year means the high speed thrills of NASCAR.  Sprint Cup fans all have their favorite race, to some it’s The Daytona 500 others may like The Brickyard, but it all starts in Florida. 

    About a month prior to the big race in Daytona Preseason Thunder happens at the Daytona International Speedway from January 10-12.

  • A Rockers Guys Weekend in London

Spend your days surfing the awesome waves and your nights hobnobbing with some of the world's most notorious party people. When the party ends, however, you'll need a refuge to sleep off all of the sunshine and nightlife adventures until you are ready to do it all over again. There are numerous accommodation options for visitors to Australia, from hostels to self-catering apartments, each of which has its pros and cons.
