Sometimes we get just a nugget of information, without any details. We could hold off reporting it until we have everything firmed up. But where’s the fun in that?
All we know is that a chain of axe throwing studios called Stumpy’s Hatchet House has Leesburg VA on their “Coming Soon” list. This is definitely a contender in the “Best Business Name Ever” contest.
Anyone who hasn’t been under a rock for the past year or two has probably heard about this latest trend in grown-up entertainment. Friends, work associates and other groups gather at these axe throwing facilities where they hurl a hatchet at a wooden target.
There is often booze involved too, although in the case of Stumpy’s, it’s BYOB.
Stumpy’s is a New Jersey-based chain with roughly nine locations open and another 23 in the works, according to their website.
We don’t have any information yet about where or when Stumpy’s may set up shop in Leesburg, but we’ve got messages in to Stumpy’s HQ and will keep you posted.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the only opportunity to hurl axes in the Greater Ashburn Metropolitan Area. The Autobahn Indoor Speedway in Sterling recently added axe throwing at their facility as well.
