Axe Throwing In Columbus: Things To Know And Where To Go!

By | Axe Throwing Insights, News

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 18 VIA 614mom (by Eryn Gilson)

Axe Throwing In Columbus: Things To Know And Where To Go!

My husband’s birthday was a few weeks ago and to celebrate I booked private party at Dueling Axes in Downtown, Columbus.  Before we get much further into this I want to be very honest with you – I am terrible at axe throwing. Like borderline embarrassing. I think I need lessons. LOL! It was a great time though – my husband and all of our friends were much better than me and they also loved it.

We arrived a few minutes before our reservation to make sure everyone had time to sign waivers before we got started. Once everyone arrived they took us over to our lanes and gave us safety instructions, helped us with practice throws, and then explained a few games we could play. The first game we played was simple – each team member got five throws and at the end the team with the highest score won.  The second game we played was Blackjack with Axes. For us Blackjack with Axes ended with an axe faceoff – between my husband and our friend Matt.  It was an exciting end to a really great night.

Axe Throwing is new(ish) to Columbus so I thought I’d give you some tips before you head out to Dueling Axes – because if I can do it, anyone can.  🙂 

  1. You don’t have to book a party to go. You can go on a date night, friends, or by yourself if that’s your thing 🙂 The pricing depends on how many hours you reserve and for how many people.

  2. Reservations are strongly encouraged if you want to secure a lane for your group.  They do accept walk ins – but there could be long wait times. Just be prepared.

  3. Make sure to wear closed toed shoes. I actually didn’t know this but had a feeling and I’m glad that I did because it’s a rule.  So make sure you put your toes away for this outing.

  4. I know I mentioned it was hard for me – and that’s true but to be fair I’m really good when putting pen to paper but bat to ball (or axe to target) kind of skills are just not where I excel. Everyone else in the group was able to master it with a little training and to be fair – I did hit the bullseye a few times (and EVERYONE in the place knew it because I celebrated with a little screaming and a dance)

  5. Speaking of – they do train you.  Before you get started, one of their trained staff members go through some required safety information as well as practice throws for everyone.

  6. It’s BYOB – and that’s important for two reasons.  1. They don’t sell alcohol on site and 2. You can’t bring liquor. I mean – would you want someone doing shots of tequila and throwing an axe?  😉

  7. With that said – you can do what we did and order food and drinks for the Walrus when you run out.  There are a few other places nearby that deliver – Dirty Franks, Mikey’s Late Night Slice, and Pecan Penny’s.  My personal recommendation – french fries from the Walrus with the amazing sauce that comes with them.

 

I originally booked my husband’s birthday party here because it was different, looked fun, and it was BYOB but after our experience I can say that we will be back and my husband is currently thinking of joining the leagues when they officially open.  We’re big fans.  Maybe we’ll see you there?

A Twist On Mother-Daughter Dates in Columbus

By | Axe Throwing Insights, News

You’re Here For A Good Time, Not An Ordinary Time!

It doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day, her birthday or any special occasion to take your mom out for a good time. After all, mother-daughter time is essential! However, you’ve probably already done the shopping at Easton, gone for walks at the Metro Parks or got your nails did before getting a bite to eat. 

There’s a seemingly endless amount of ideas out there to spend time with one another, but if you’re looking
for something different and out of the ordinary, we’ve got the perfect
Columbus mother-daughter date ideas for you! 

 

Start The Morning With “Mother” Nature

There’s nothing better than waking up, hitting the outdoors and getting your steps in. One place on your not-so-ordinary day date can be Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

Butterflies in Garden

Who doesn’t love looking at nature and then being all around beautiful butterflies? The butterfly exhibition has been waiting for you to see its beauty this whole time! Outside of engaging exhibitions, there are a number of other expeditions to explore, creative writing workshops, beginner Tai Chi programs and culinary arts classes.

There’s a ton you two can do in just one place! But don’t burn yourself out – you’ve got a full day ahead. 

 

Take It Easel: You’ve Earned Yourself A Drink

Painting Classes in ColumbusSo, you recently had a little argument with your mom and you’re trying to get past it. Take that emotion and turn it into something beautiful by trying out a paint and pour class at Studio 614! Pick up the brush and put the tizzy between you two behind. There’s no way a smile won’t appear especially after a couple glasses of wine and a few strokes of artistic genius. 

Have some wine, get your feelings out and bury the hatchet – or should we say … axe. 

 

Grab a Slice & An Axe; Step Outside The Box & Down The LaneLoretta Zedella at Dueling Axes

There’s no doubt you’ll be hungry as the day goes on and who doesn’t love pizza? It may be original, but what about eating pizza and throwing some axes? Grab a box of ‘za and bring it down to Dueling Axes with that bottle of wine you have left over from your paint party – you know, that one you were totally going to save for a later date. You can bring your favorite food (or have it delivered), break open your favorite booze (besides hard liquor) and end your   mother-daughter day with some friendly competition.

After all, nothing says “I love you” quite like whipping an axe down a lane for points!

Reserve a Lane Today!

 

The Night Is Still Young

Still hungry after all that axe throwing? There are plenty of amazing restaurants close by to Dueling Axes – many are even within walking distance. 

Interested in some tapas? Check out Sidebar

How about literally any sort of hotdog you could possibly imagine? Dirty Frank’s is where you want to be. 

Can’t decide, but know you want something good? Head on over to Hadley’s. There’s even more restaurants and bars that can satisfy your taste buds that are just steps away! 

Dueling Axes: Your Future Go-To for a Columbus Night Out
