questioning man holding a cocktail Remember the days when you could throw five bucks worth of gas into your car and cruise the town all night? Well, those days maybe over, unless of course you have an expendable income or drive a Prius. High prices drive up the cost of entertainment everywhere, and it not just the fuel cost. Higher prices translate to an increased in everything from the beer, liquor and soda to those tasty little goldfish crackers and pretzels. But what can be done to lower your entertainment cost?

2020 Update

Can you believe that just a few years ago that our biggest concern was rising gas prices? It’s now March 2020 and now we have record low gas prices ($1.89 /gallon as we speak) but now the big concern is a virus that bears the same name as my favorite brand of beer. The coronavirus has the world world in a panic…but relax; for the past 20 years we’ve had the solution for your  comfort and concerns…

Build a Home Bar!

  3. No risk of a drunk driving, as long as you STAY home.
  4. No risk of public embarrassment when you have a bit too much to drink.
  5. Fast & Easy access to your own bathroom, no waiting.
  6. Easy access to your own bed…which is nice and convenient.
  7. Seating is much more comfortable, especially for football games.
  8. You can smoke in your own home. No judgement here.
  9. You can cuss all you want without being ejected from the establishment.
  10. It’s way safer than public places.

The Cost of Entertainment

You already know the cost of going out on the town. Besides the risks, the price of drinks can quickly drain your pocket book, especially when you start having a little too much fun. When you entertain at home, you save money and stay safe.

Don’t Forget the Memories

A home bar is a special place to forge great memories through the the entire year, for birthdays, holidays and even your favorite seasonal sporting events. Every site member I have talked to describes the joy and happiness they experience by having the ability to entertain at home, decorating and personalizing their home bar and enjoy sharing their special place with friends and family. Not to mention the pride in building it themselves. See the site members entertaining at home below and more completed home bar projects here.

It’ll cost you an arm and a leg to fill up these days. Stay home, build a bar. It helps lower CO2 too!

Save Gas by Entertaining at Home

After years of high prices, we were seeing little to no relief at the pump. Oil speculation and supply issues will likely always remain.
Let’s face it, World oil consumption is on the rise with no sign of decline. Growing populations and increased global demand  combined with refining troubles and middle east tensions will guarantee that your weekend trip to the bar, pub or nightclub will eventually become even more expensive. The solution? Build a bar and entertain in your own home. It helps lower oil demand and more, so do your part and get busy building today!

It’s fun, saves gas and keeps drunk drivers off the road!

No need to mention the added benefit of avoiding mixing drinking and driving. No more drunk driving, OWI, DWI or DUI problems to worry about. Our plans provide plenty of home entertainment and home remodeling ideas to make your completed project the new hot spot of your neighborhood.
