You saw it right: drinking while throwing axes! Axe & Bull in Sarasota, Florida, offers indoor axe throwing, where guests can bring their favorite beer or wine for consumption during a thrilling, physical, hands-on experience.
Last week I had the chance to test my throwing skills with a group of friends, challenging each other to games such as 21 and Cricket on an extra-large wooden target board. Before we began, an instructor provided tips for our safety and educated us on the best way to throw the axe. He remained by our side for much of our first game until we all got the hang of it. The new experience was exciting and gave me a spark of adrenaline as I threw the object toward the target. It was satisfying to hear the thud as the blade sank into the soft wood.
Now that I have gone once, I would love to go again to see how my skills have improved and to try out new games such as Around the World, Humans vs. Zombies, Horse, or Landmines. But, unfortunately, it’s not every day I get my hands on an axe. Luckily Axe & Bull allows you to pre-book one- to two-hour sessions on their website, axeandbull.com. Looking forward to throwing again soon!

Hotelier Ash welcomes its fourth hotel, Ulysses, to its collection. Situated in Mount Vernon, Baltimore, the 116-room hotel features an all-day café and late-night drinking parlor. The new hotel lies within the historic, nine-story Latrobe Building, a former 1912 apartment building with an early Italian Renaissance design. The hotel earns its name, Ulysses, from a ship that brought Bavarian immigrants to Baltimore at the turn of the century. The name also pays homage to James Joyce’s legendary and revolutionary novel and to the Greek hero, Odysseus.
