Dave's Friday Photo


This is a guy's paradise. A couple of houses ago, I designed and planned, and a contractor built, this media room. My friend Gary did the woodwork.

I will build an exact replica of this in a future house because it was the primo place to watch a movie or spend a football weekend. (the bar was right behind, just out of the picture) Being just one person, I don't need that much house anymore... but I still have the surround system, HD big screen and the furniture for watching football*, the Man Show and Old School.

*click the football link at your own risk.

Or dim the lights and spend the weekend indulging in a Godfather movie marathon! :)

That does look like a fun place to spend a weekend. Or a month.

Hey honey! That is an awesome room. I can tell you that I doubt it will be "just one person" forever. You seem like a great person, and someone would be lucky to have you.

Just in case "WE" ever do build it again...the beer quota has gone up considerably since then. I'll aslo add that you've seen my movie room and there's nothing wrong with watching by yourslef. I've been doing it a while now and have come to appreciate not having someone tell me "It's too loud...turn it down"!!!
Well...OK....that's what I tell myself...maybe there are times when someone else there would be ok too.

Viva la Friday!!!

Nice media room! Have yourself a spanking weekend, Dave. (not as in fish spanking, just as in great fun, good food and no hangovers)

That room looks awesome, but I am really really really distracted by that football link---YEOWZA :(

So cozy! I like the touch of using musical instruments in your decor.

A guy's paradise? No mini-fridge? No Hooter's girls?

Me? I'd go for Squirt Girls 4.

But I'm a non-registered offender, that's me.

Dave, this media room is really awesome. Not only did Gary do a great job with the woodwork on the cabinet, it's nicely decorated as well. I like that it's clean and not all ornate looking. I used to work in a place that did specialized woodworking and I've seen some beautiful work. I love me some wood. The smell of sawdust even does it for me.

HOLY CRAP...that room makes me drool!

My husband would probably trade both me and our son for a room like that.

On an unrelated note, you asked about good restaurants in the Dallas area. I'm sure there are a ton, but I'm a huge Mi Cocina fan. However, it's great Tex-Mex, not authentic Mexican food. If you're interested in a bigger chain restaurant that you maybe don't have in your hometown, Carrabbas is a great Italian grill and The Keg has great steaks. But then again, I go to Dallas from time to time but don't actually live there, so I'm no authority on Dallas restaurants. I live about 30 minutes away. But if you decide to go to Mi Cocina, you have to have a margarita. Holy crap, those are great. And I don't usually like margaritas.
