Axe throwing divorce parties now the newest trend

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.
