Urban Axes plans to open this summer, Bizbash reports.
Hope they use fake axes with foam heads because the people would be too drunk to know.
They are very cheap these days.
When I clicked, it said Union Square, but it didn't give an address as far as I read.
edit: I saw another article from Eater Boston that said the biz declined to state their address for the meantime.
fulfills an obvious demand, but what I want to know is, who do I get to throw axes at? The proprietors? Other patrons? Or will it just be special target-guests brought in for the occasion, like washed-up politicians and sports celebrities? Throwing axes at these might sound like fun, but they are notoriously good at dodging things.
to dodge when you throw multiple axes.
Why don't you go axe them?
Obviously you get to throw them at someone who has parked in your parking spot.
Where you can throw hipsters.
To go here I have some lovely new real estate in the seaport that don’t flood. Cherry gig, kehd.
Wish they were coming to Boston. Commentary from the Licensing Board would be priceless.
If you can dodge an axe, you can dodge a dodge ball!
in Davis Square had to close its basement bocce court because an errant ricochet hit a bystander?
Apparently Somerville doesn't, either.
Cute idea, like Frost, the Fanueil Hall ice bar -- which like the old jackets-required Ritz Bar would lend you the smelly-parka equivalent of frayed, size-50 blue blazer if you showed up unprepared -- was a cute idea. Union Square doesn't have hordes of guileless tourists to somehow keep a harebrained, overpriced novelty concept open for three years. Take the under on 12 months in business.
Now, a bar that featured Jarts: *that* I would patronize out of pure nostalgia. "In myyy day, we didn't fret and fuss over a kid's game that could impale your skull with a steel-tipped, plastic-finned missile in the name of good, clean, non-adult-supervised fun out in the fresh air. We would run around the back yard, Jarts sprouting from our frontal lobes like big blue and red dandelions, screaming, "Yay, we're getting exercise instead of sitting indoors melting our brains watching the teevee like a bunch of zombies.' That's the way it was and we LIKED IT!"
Other cities seem to have figured it out and it's really popular in Montreal. I don't see why Somerville couldn't make it work.
In Boston, they could open a bar where you hurl space savers...
