Since opening in November, Bad Axe Throwing in Northeast has hosted everything from birthday parties to bachelorette parties to business meetings with catered lunch and a projector. Also popular? Divorce parties, which, says marketing and development coordinator Melanie St-Amour, were a hit from the get-go.
“When people are going through these major life changes, it’s a fun way to get together with their support systems,” she says. “Instead of [going to] the bar, they throw an ax, release some stress.”
If your bitter heart so desires, you can even bring a picture of your ex to use as a target. Or perhaps something more sartorial. “We had one lady who came in and she actually brought her wedding dress,” which they let her use as the target, says St-Amour. One guy sunk an ax into his ex-wife’s heels.
