    Re: You've got a knife and I have an axe. Let's get drunk

    These axe throwing bars are popping up everywhere here in CA. Well, actually just San Diego and my little
    Town of Pleasanton are the two that I know of.

    Beer and axe throwing...what could go wrong?

    There is one in Reno for sure.

    Thought it was a great idea when I had been drinking a few.

    Re: You've got a knife and I have an axe. Let's get drunk

    Yeah, it seems to be a trend out here, too...I saw a demo-type set up at a local event this fall. I just googled it out of curiosity, and apparently there's a new spot in town, part of a franchise called Stumpy's that has something like 40 locations all around the country. Seems like the first one (of this franchise) was/is located in Eatontown, NJ. Only opened around 2016, so they're blowing up.

    I think a lot of them are BYOB, but they sell beer & wine at the local spot. It'd be interesting to check out, but it's $25/hour, per person. You can buy a decent throwing axe/hatchet for that much, or for a few bucks more...and $100/hour for four people seems juuuuuust a bit pricey.

    Cheap axes, cheap wood targets that are easy to replace...good business model! Guessing insurance isn't quite so cheap, though...

    Going back to the thread title, this song entered my head when I read it. Check it out at about 1:24...not quite an axe, but would have been perfect if it was.

    On the positive side - they create a bunch of campfire wood. They use 2x10 lumber to make their targets. When the lumber is chewed up from the ax throwing, it's removed and placed out back and it's FREE. I got a truckload and cut it up into 16" slabs. Makes great campfire wood!!!

    As a kid, I remember those Lawn Darts. Our family had some. Damn things were big and robust as I recall. We used them as intended and no one got hurt.

    I was at one up in Milwaukee for a work outing. Yeah, work paid for us to drink and toss ax and it was a lot of fun. It is like bowling sorta, after one or two beers you are killing it then after three or four beers you suck. When yer throwing all stupid like and it bounces back to ya...ya do sheet yerself a 'lil.

    Alcohol and dangerous activities is part of the Human condition, not saying is bad, not saying is good, it just is A lot of organized sports started that way.

    Reminds me of the Colombian National game "Tejo", Steel projectiles, gunpowder and lots and lots of beer, played a lot in Colombia and love it, heard of secret clubs here .

    Mumblety-peg is always a fun time when you're at a bar. Use that axe for some real thrills.
