Boys Weekend: The Essentials!


Are you planning a boy’s weekend? We don’t want to know what you have in mind, but we do have some ideas of essential items you need to take! Wherever you are planning to go, whether it’s for a fishing trip or just a weekend of letting your hair down, there’s some things that are truly necessary, and of course, beer is one of them! No lad’s weekend can ever be complete without the drink, but we – of course – advise you to drink responsibly! A cooler will also be essential, then, as you don’t want to be drinking warm beer!

Another absolutely essential item is your choice of clothing; if the weather’s good you need a pair of shorts at the very least, and a change of t-shirts! You want to pack light, however, as it’s not great to have to lug a heavy case around with you for a weekend. So, where do you go for a lad’s weekend? There’s the traditional stomping ground of Blackpool, with its many bars and clubs, or perhaps one of the big cities where you can experience the bright lights? However, I prefer a camping trip, as it always throws up some interesting experiences!

You Need Music!

No lads weekend will feel right if there is no music involved, so you need at the very least a portable sound system. If you can find one that works wirelessly and accesses your phone for MP3 files, then you’re onto a winner, and that’s why my number 1 essential item is my wireless subwoofer! Now, if you haven’t heard one of these in action, you’re in for a real treat! What are they? Brilliant is what they are.

It’s probably best you take a look for yourself, so I’ll just say they are portable sound systems that allow you to play music wirelessly, and they come with a subwoofer to provide the very best in bass sound – bass, in fact, that you have never heard the likes of before. We found a great review of wireless subwoofers at, an excellent website featuring reviews of a wide range of items, with details of specifications, pros and cons, recommendations and price comparisons. It’s well worth a look, whatever it is you are searching for.

Buying a Subwoofer

When buying a subwoofer, there are some features to look for; if you are going to be carrying it around you need it to be light and portable, and it must be said some are bigger than others. You also need it to be able to stream the music from your device, so check the specifications before you commit. There is plenty of choice, as you will see when you read the review, so there will certainly be a model that suits your requirements and budget.

Wherever you choose to go, make sure you enjoy your lad’s weekend, and remember, drink responsibly, stay safe, and enjoy music whenever you want. That’s all from us, so have a great weekend!

Play Online Slots with Free Money

Play Online Slots with Free Money


Are you a fan of slot machines? Perhaps you put a few pounds in when you are at the pub, or maybe at your local casino? It’s great fun and, if you’re lucky, you might even win a few quid! The slot machine is an old invention – indeed, the first ones appeared in the early part of the 20th century in the USA, and were the model for the more complex machines we see today – but the modern version is a different beast entirely. The digital age has led to us expecting much more from our gaming, so even the machine at your local pub will be a complicated game.

If you’re a regular player, have you considered online slots? There are many you can choose from, at a variety of different online casinos, so you can try them all and see which ones you like. In fact, most online casinos offer you the chance to play in a demo mode, so you can learn to play the game properly before you commit your own money. And, it gets better, because we’re going to tell you about online slots with bonuses, where you get free money to play with.

Slots with Bonuses

So, what’s it all about? Well, when you first sign up with an online casino, you will be asked to deposit some money in your playing account. You can choose the amount you wish to deposit from your credit or debit card. The casino, and most of them do this, will then give you a bonus; some match your deposit – up to a certain amount – while others do even more, so you really do get free money to play with, above and beyond that you have deposited. It doesn’t get much better than that, right?

The thing with online casinos is it’s not just about slot machines; you can also play traditional casino games such as blackjack, poker and roulette, and you’ll find there are different levels of table so you can choose the stakes you are comfortable with. Always remember that, while great fun, you are gambling, so you can lose your money as well as make a profit.

Choose Your Game

Choosing your preferred slot machine may take some time, as there are many to look at and try. You can find plenty of information on the various online casinos, their bonuses and more, if you look here at 777extraslot, a great site with reviews and details of the many options. You’ll find many different options and get the opportunity to play in demo mode, so you can choose your game before you start to spend money.

With a laptop, tablet or even a smartphone, you can play online slots wherever you have an internet connection, so that’s your lunch break entertainment taken care of! You can even play in the pub or in many café’s where you will find Wi-Fi hotspots. Or, if you wish, you can play anytime you want at home, so you don’t have to go out on a cold, wet night to get your slot machine fun!

Family Holidays in Britain with a Difference

Next year avoid paying outrageous prices (like the equivalent of £10 for a local beer) plus the added expensive of travelling to Spain, and stay in the UK. You’ll be surprised at the options available that are right on your doorstep. Try this ebookers discount code for a great saving off the total cost of your trip. Continue Reading ›
