An Axe Whooping

Happy Halloween!

I did a thing recently.  Believe it or not, even with my Scotch-Irish heritage, I had never been axe throwing.  So I ventured to an establishment in downtown Denver called “Axe Whooping!”

It was a super dismal snowy overcast day, so it was perfect for this indoor sport.  The entire staff is so lovely and make your experience memorable.  You start by walking in and immediately signing a waiver - I mean, obviously.  You’re playing around with real axes.  Sadly, if you are a liquor drinker, the bar does not accommodate - HOWEVER, liquor and weapons never really made for a great combo.  

The bar does have some delicious high gravity beers.  Your truly started feeling axe giddy after two!  My favorite was the melon IPA.

Next you get a brief lesson in form, safety and accuracy and then walk into a caged area and let’s rip!  Oh!  They also have knife throwing and those little razor sharp stars to offer a little variety!

The only food I saw was jerky which you can buy at the bar or the super salty popcorn they lay out at the tables (to keep you going to the bar for more beer).  Which means, eat before you get there!

Completely unrelated - my favorite Halloween mug!

Oh they also have one of the wreck or “rage rooms” in the back of the establishment!
