Catching up with the boys is a time-honored holiday tradition. This season, make it one to remember with these fashion, activity, and day-of tips from our friends at Irvine Spectrum Center.
Patterned Flannel Shirt, Hollister Co. ($40). Irvine Spectrum Center, 647 Spectrum Center Dr., Irvine, 949-727-4388
Enjoy an evening with the boys this holiday watching Doctor Strange or Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in 3D IMAX or 3D RPX at Edwards Irvine Spectrum 21 while wearing this comfy button-up plaid shirt.
LTD Navy & White Ribbed Sweater, Topman ($75). Nordstrom, Irvine Spectrum Center, 800 Spectrum Center Dr., Irvine, 949-255-2800
Make it a memorable guys’ night when you sport this classic navy crew neck sweater complete with contrasting white ribbed detail on the sleeves and hem.
Sure, the more the merrier is a great way to go about guys' night, but give the boys a head's up that your wife's sister's boyfriend who's in town for the holidays is joining the festivities. Boys' night is sacred, so show your best buds that you intend to spend quality time with them and aim to keep additional guests to just one or two.
It’s a no-brainer that sports will be vying for top conversation spot at guys’ night. Regardless of whether you're a 49er, a Rams fan, part of Raider Nation, or support a team from a different state, make sure to keep the football banter positive and the trash talk to a minimum. After all, the season isn’t over just yet.
Wherever the night takes you, make it a gentlemen’s gathering for the ages at these local hot spots.
Nothing says boys' night quite like this restaurant’s Manly Burger, which features house-beer cheddar cheese, bacon lardons, smoked-salted onion strings, and Umami’s famous ketchup. The Late Night Happy Hour from 9 p.m. to close will help take the night to epic levels. Irvine Spectrum Center, 527 Spectrum Center Dr., Irvine, 949-396-1830
Keep the good times going at Dave & Buster’s. In the recently renovated Sport Lounge, cheer your team on to victory or help ease the pain of defeat with your choice of more than two dozen beers on tap or by the bottle. Complete the night with a few rounds of competitive pool or Dance Dance Revolution, whichever the occasion calls for. Irvine Spectrum Center, 661 Spectrum Center Dr., Irvine, 949-727-0555
