Similar to a Canopy, and provides shade for all, but in true "man" fashion, it is not fashionable. Usually constructed from makeshift building materials such as 2x4s or PVC covered in a tarp, this structure is usually used to simply keep sun out of ones eyes with total disregard for aesthetics. Manopies (pl) are usually set up on the beach or at a pool and go best with beer and barbecues. Although they are unattractive, they tend to attract people because they work, and they don't buy into bullshit commercialism.
Let's go to the beach, I got some PVC pipe and a Blue tarp, we can set up the Manopy and drink some beers while we bbq.
