Minnesota’s First Axe-Throwing Bar is Now Open
Axes and alcohol -- what could possibly go wrong?
What could possibly be more Minnesotan than drinking craft beer and throwing axes? Paul Bunyan would be proud.
Bad Axe Throwing is now open in Minneapolis and is already being hailed as a Twin Cities hot spot. According to Dan DeBaun of Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, "The Bad Axe concept is straightforward: It’s like a bowling alley, but with axes and targets instead of balls and pins." For 15-30 minutes, a professional ax-thrower shows you and your group different methods of throwing an ax. Then, you're on your own!
Now, you may be wondering if axe throwing is a safe activity, especially with alcohol involved. Master axe thrower Nic Sable says there's never been a serious incident at any of Bad Axe Throwing's 17 locations and that axe throwing is a safe activity for all ages as long as proper safety protocol is followed.
Bad Axe Throwing targets groups like corporate events, bachelor parties or birthday parties at $39.25 per person, but walk-ins are also welcome at $20 per hour.
You can find out more about Bad Axe Throwing at their website. Don't forget your flannel!
