Entertaining with your man

Beer tasting party

Rather than go for the traditional wine and cheese party, opt for beer tasting instead. With so many microbreweries popping all over the US, along with interesting imported beers, a party centered on comparing and contrasting the best bottles is a sure fire way to get to your guy interested in entertaining.

Video game party
