Ladies and gents, an axe throwing bar is coming to East Nashville. Before I go any further, no the axes don’t leave the cages. You will not be sitting at the bar with axes whizzing by your head. So now that we all feel safe-ish, this venue is going to be epic. I had no idea what axe throwing was like, but I figured since I love archery so much it must produce a similar feeling. (Check out Emily’s great get-up HERE from our last archery sesh.)
I can’t say that I’m surprised we both hit bullseyes within two tries, but I was obviously proud. Emily and I love activities if it wasn’t already deadly obvious. I don’t want to go sit at a bar and chit chat while I could be hurling hatchets… know what I mean? What an amazing stress reliever and all-around primal experience. We were riding such a high after this. Even though it seems so savage, it really was calming.
The site is currently under renovation, but open on the weekends for some good old fashioned axe throwing. They should have a grand opening mid-April. I also feel obliged to mention that this wooden arena if you will can be transported to weddings and events. I’m just saying, if I don’t have a photo in a wedding dress holding an axe… then what’s the point?
