Once you're in your thirties, date nights can get a little boring. Dinner and a movie? Done it a thousand times, We like to get creative with our kid free evenings and when we were invited to throw some hatchet followed by the letters BYOB, say no more.
Stumpy's Hatchet House has everything you need for a fun night out. It's only $27 to rent a booth for an hour or $40 for two hours. Considering you get to bring your own booze, which they put on ice for you (nice touch!), this ends up being a very affordable date night. The booth has two targets and two hatchets. Sign a waiver in case you do something stupid and chop off a toe and then one of the coaches will teach you different ways to throw the axe, how to stay safe and have fun. Most importantly, don't be an axehole. Fortunately, fun is the easy part.. There is a scoreboard and various games to play once you feel comfortable throwing an axe and a bell to ring when you hit the bulls eye
Bobby, the owner, is down to earth and you can tell he truly loves helping people have a good time. All of the instructors are cool and happy to serve, but I must say we particularly had a blast getting to know Q. Ask for him, he's one of the best throwers and is great at helping you adjust your throw.
There is a snack bar, but you're free to bring in your own food as well. They also have a private party room and is a great choice for your next birthday or corporate party. Or a my boyfriend just cheated on me and I need to throw an axe at his face party. They do those too.
FYI, I rang the bell three times. ;)
