    Whatever you do, when your buddy tells you to stand up there with an apple on your head, don’t do it. :eek::D:lol:

    Please don't invite this guy, and they said bowling is safe.

    I know a man that has one of these places . In fact , this activity may eventually will be going oh directly across the street from me . Bring a picture of your/an ex and put it on the target . That sort of thing . Willy currently makes and sells mead and will be venturing into the beer world once he opens across the street .

    Went to one for a co-ed bachelor/ette party; Nutzi thought it was the dumbest thing ... until we tried it!

    Only the throwers allowed in the cage; no one behind us. Far enough back that the bounce wasn't a concern. A heckuva lot harder than it looks! Oh, did I mention it was a LOT of fun and laughs?!

    Gentlemen, be afraid when your Ms. is better than you ... VERY afraid ...

    Our little town has a big parade day once a year that includes a free ice cream social and a chainsaw competition and a broad axe contest in front of one of the bars. IMG_4806.JPG

    All of location Presidents and Sales Managers went to one in Philly. The guys who are excellent golfers did the best.

    There's one right up the road from me. It's where I get my water bottles refilled. It looks like a cool little place for people to try it out and hang for a bit.

    I'm thinking it's cool to try for a novelty, but would probably fizzle out after a while. I don't see them lasting.

    I know there is/was one in north Alabama a while back...having heard any advertisements for it since the events of this year, however. Judging by the ads, it was aimed at the local hipster-with-lumberjack-beard demographic, which in north Alabama is HUGE.

    Cool.

    Do dagger-throwing next.

    I thought this was going to be a thread about how parlor guitars are the next big thing.

    There is one near me. Incorporated into an indoor go-cart facility.
    The karting faciity has been operating for over ten years. They have league competition and inter-league competition on a national level.
    I've been involved with racing with one of my sons, and its a blast.

    The axe throwing thing was added on about two years ago.
    Seems fairly popular, though I havent tried it.
    Same thing, leagues, regional competitions, champions crowned. Etc.
    And females seem to enjoy participating in both, and many are very good at either.

    I'm not sure if you can have a successful business when you tend to kill off your own customers... Maybe pair it with a funeral home?

    A place opened here a few months before the pandemic...it was popular, by I guess it's a short fad.
    If I owned one of those places and had 3 bad months in a row, I'd walk away.
    I have some throwing knives and a nice hand-made hatchet.
    It's fun, but I don't need to go to a place and pay to do it.
