They just ran an article about this company in our local paper yesterday.
Man Cave® : Where Men Can Be Men

Pretty interesting concept! Their shipping prices are outrageous ($8 initial fee plus $2 for additional items and $5 initial fee for meat products).

I've known about the firm for about 6 months. I initially thought that it would be the perfect addition to a husband/wife team. (Pardon the stereotyping) He'd keep the men occupied drinking beer and grilling while the female partner would handle a Pampered Chef cooking show with the women.

It wouldn't work in my area ... but it did sound intriguing.

I don't think it would work for my husband or most of his friends. I found it sort of insulting to men when reading the "Man Rules". My husband doesn't drink beer or adjust himself in public, and the rules were for a stereotypical oaf of a male - wouldn't apply to most of the men I know.

I wonder how well they do in winter in most of the country where it's too cold to grill?

Totally feel this is a man oriented company and it sounds like there is some tongue and cheek humor in it. In my area, mem don't always want to admit that they like to cook. And if a man doesn't like to cook in the house, he is more likely to grill...and ANYTIME of year! -30 degrees below? Not a problem!

For me, no but last I checked...I am not a man :D. It just might appeal to some men. I always thought that Big Yellow Box had such a narrow audience (and that their prices were too high for children's crafts) that it wouldn't survive and it folded. But it is hard to tell what things will catch and what won't.

LOL - I live in Michigan, and we grill all year! It's tradition for us to grill steaks for New Years Eve! We just dig a path through the snow to the grill!:D

Must be the lack of testosterone in me... :D

Actually, I think it's the hunger for warm weather. We'll do anything to pretend that it's 75 and sunny outside!:D

You'll have to let us know how it goes.

Oh I will!!!
In fact I e-mailed the web link to her and a friend of mine who also knows this lady. It will be fun to see what kind of reaction I get. I can not believe some of the prices either! I mean who does this place cater too? Real men or wall street tycoons? I mean seriously? $20 for a baseball cap! $12 for camo duct tape! $11 for 12 ounces of beef sticks? Or better yet, an apron for $18 and a beer bottle opener for $9!

Actually it isn't John making those noises. Its me. And it isn't various sports on TV I'm watching. Its tapes of the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 Tony Awards.
