A customer gets ready to hurl an ax at a Stumpy's Hatchet House.
San Antonians now have another place to go full lumberjack.
Stumpy's Hatchet House will open Saturday, Sept. 29, giving residents two — count 'em, two
— options if they want to have a cold one with friends and hurl hatchets at wooden targets. The first, of course, was rival chain Class Axe
, which opened its Alamo City location earlier this year.
According to Stumpy's S.A. website
, it will offer 12 throwing pits, plus a "beautiful" woodshed party room, food for purchase and giant Jenga. If you want to drink, you'll need to bring beer or wine from home — no hard liquor.
There are a couple of catches though. You've got to be over 21 and no open-toed footwear. (Because who likes being rushed to the emergency room with your severed piggy nestled on a bag of beer ice?)
On the website, Stumpy's also bills ax play as a perfect for corporate teambuilding. But given the cutthroat nature of the American workplace, you've got to wonder whether teambuilding around sharp objects is such a safe idea.
