These days everyone is investing in improving their Home Theater system with new flat screens, high tech video game systems, HDDVD players and such. But if you really want to make your apartment the desired hang out spot and impress your friends, you'll want to go beyond just beefing up the movie watching experience.
After a brainstorming session with a few friends, I have 4 additions to the rest of your apartment that'll leave your friends nodding in a approval and make your place the place to be.
Kegerator- Cold beer? No one likes constant trips to the store to buy more beer because you just ran out. Then sometimes you have to wait for it to chill. Then you always have to throw out the mess of cans and bottles at the end of the night. Let's by pass all that. Impress your friends, save time, and money by investing in a Kegerator. My friend Shane even built his own from scratch. He has a “Keg Donation" jar next to it that people actually donate to fill up the keg. Think of all the money saved in the long run.
Refrigerated Wine Chiller- Not a beer drinker? With this slick invention you can keep your wines chilled and constantly display that your taste in wine has become highly evolved since your days drinking it straight from a bag. Not that I'm a wine expert or anything, but I do know that you need to keep those white wines chilled and those reds just a hair below room temperature.
I-Pod Stereo- It seems like everyone I know has an I-Pod, but what's the good of having all your music in your pocket if you can't blast your “Best of Hair Metal" play list while hanging with your friends? Thankfully, there are a wide variety of boom boxes that cater directly to playing I-Pods varying in features.
High Tech Coffee Machine- Do you hit up Starbucks all the time, spending 5 bucks a pop on a venti? Why not save yourself t $35 a week by grabbing yourself a gourmet coffee machine. Your body will thank you for the extra 15 minutes of sleep you'll be able to get in the morning and then you can spend the extra $140 a month savings on something nice for your significant other. If you don't have one, you can just spend it on me. . . that will suffice.
So there you have it. Sure, for most of these items you will be shelling out a couple of Benjamins, but the investment will be guaranteed to be well worth it and provide a number of great times at your apartment.
