Ax-throw­ing bars (yes, they’re a thing), Rach’s fa­vorite pieces in­spired by her bou­tique dur­ing SXSW, where to eat in Detroit, and more

What do you get when you mix axes with al­co­hol? If you’re think­ing the ER, we’re with you. But ax-throw­ing bars are a thing now, and they’re ac­tu­ally safe, thanks to strict su­per­vi­sion by, ahem, ax- perts. The Cana­dian-born con­cept has gained trac­tion in the States with venues like Ur­ban Axes (ur­ban axes.com) do­ing brisk busi­ness in Austin, Bal­ti­more, and Philadel­phia; Bad Axe Throw­ing (badax­ethrow­ing .com) pack­ing them in at 17 lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing At­lanta and Den­ver; and Kick Axe Throw­ing (kick­axe.com) call­ing Brook­lyn and Washington, D.C., home. Along with booze, they all fea­ture ranges where groups can hurl axes at tar­gets. And you don’t have to be Paul Bun­yan to play. “Ev­ery­one loves throw­ing axes—they just don’t know it yet!” says Krista Pa­ton, co-owner of Ur­ban Axes. “We have bach­e­lorettes throw­ing next to lawyers. It’s re­ally any­one’s game.”
