    I prefer not to use the word, but there is a show going on this weekend in Chicagoland. Pheasant run resort in st Charles. Pretty empty show, but hemispheres amusements has a spread of 22+? Pins

    My mom bought me a sign that said Jason's Mancave for Christmas once and I threw it away right in front of her.

    HAHA - this might be your best post ever. I would have done the same thing!

    My wife only wants to go to "She Shack Shows!"

    She shack is at least still kinda funny

    My father always laughs when he hears that term.

    He always says, "I had a man cave when you were a kid, but I called it my house".

    Wow , was it really that dead there?

    #11 2 years ago

    Yep. I'm so used to the Chicagoland Show there, I thought I might be in the wrong place when I pulled into the parking lot. First year of the show though from what I hear, so probably not known by many yet.

    It looks like the Chicagoland show is moving to a new location. Anyone know if the Friday morning swap meet will still happen?

    That was not nice. You should thanked her for the sign. Then later got rid of it. Your mother deserves more (maybe, hopefully).

    Mancave is a terrible replacement name for Games Room, Rec. Room, Den, Arcade, hell, even Spare room in the Basement sounds better.

    You people are so silly about this stuff! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to my MANCAVE to play one of my pinball TABLES cause I’m a pinball WIZARD.

    Sounds good! I’m just glad you didn’t call your table a deck.

    My expo/show advice,

    Ditch the phrase “Mancave” because you’ll lose the female demographic. If your event isn’t marketed towards women then it’s not as “family friendly”.

    I've been hearing ads for this for the past month on the radio (for sure on 103.9 the fox), so it's not like it wasn't advertised. Also they made it sound like it was all mancave things (bars, decor, lighting).. I only see games in those photos.

    #18 2 years ago

    I can't stand the word mancave. I think this webpage, and especially the first two comments below, explains for those who don't understand:

    That never really happened bub lol. Gotta strike while the joke is HOT, and before I forget it. C'mon Darcy,...half the shit I say on here is just drunken nonsense. You new here?

    Funny I remembered this thread when I saw the new B-Dub commercial. It definitely says a lot about how I feel about the term Mancave. Also, mentions craft store signs lol.

    I don't care what term makes you feel good, I still feel like a real goober telling people a 48 year old man has a "insert feel good term here".
    It all sounds stupid even when it is cool.
