(WJAC TV Johnstown)   Middle of a pandemic, good idea not to have a business lease. I've got it. Open one of them axe tossing joints. People are dying to get out and do something   (wjactv.com) divider line

Strangely enough the last mall I was in (about a month ago) the busiest shop in the place was a hatchet throwing joint. I kid you not. That place had people standing outside in line waiting to get in to a full house.

Crazy.

I can grab a hatchet and toss it at a tree for free and without a line.

Yes but will you have a bearded 30 year old painstakingly explaining hops cultivation and treating IPAs like they're a personality?

There's a hatchet-throwing bar near me called Stumpy's. Clever name, but I'll never go in there.

I was going to make a snarky comment about axe throwing, but, in my day, we used to go to places like the Limelight in Atlanta, stand in line to get in, pay a cover charge, just to go dance to bad disco music - usually while wearing white bell bottom slacks and a satin shirt.

I'm currently in negotiations with Ed Ames about franchising axe tossing venues named "Mingo's."

Not really. Haven't axed him.

Don't knock it til you try it.  Went a few weeks ago for first time.  It's a blast and great stress relief.  Harder then it looks.

Some of my neighbors tried it in our open space with the same "do it at home for free" sentiments here.  Did not go well.  $30 for two hours of fun and laughs was worth it.

Been doing this for close to three decades, on and off, at SCA events for fun. It was about as common in the East Kingdom as it is out here in An Tir. Spears, hatchets, axes - it's a good time, and the best part is that in a wide open space you can get the hell out of the way should you over-rotate that puppy & see it come back at you for a hug.

Oh, and don't go to any place that does this while serving alcohol. It's hard enough sober - giving someone an ax while they're even tipsy, never mind drunk, is never a good idea.
