Since the news came out that there would be an ax-throwing bar coming to the Twin Cities around the same time the Super Bowl was happening my wife, Jill, insisted that we go. So for her birthday on Thursday night, I surprised her with a trip to NE Minneapolis to throw some axes.

I was pretty leery about the whole drinking beer and throwing sharp objects thing at first, but after talking with an employee they make sure you stay safe. According to that same employee the worst injury they have had in over 7 years as a company was a few splinters from pulling an ax out of a target.

Our group got a few pointers on how to throw an ax and we were off! Here is my wife hucking an ax at the target!

And here I am giving it a go!

If you are looking for a fun experience that didn't cost us a whole bunch of money ($22/person) you should head up and give it a try! We went to Bad Axe Throwing, and it was a bad-ax time!
