Axes and ales in one shop: What could possibly go wrong?
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A sandwich shop in West Virginia’s capital plans to expand next week to add craft beer and ax throwing.
Chadrick Harper, owner of the Lucky Dill Deli, tells WSAZ-TV the addition will be called “Axes and Ales” and will allow customers to hurl real axes into a wooden target.
Starting Dec. 14, the Charleston business expects to have five ax-throwing courts open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
There are rules.
You have to be 21 to play and get safety training. It costs $40 to reserve one court, separated from others by Plexiglas dividers, for one hour. Up to four can play.
A projector displays the target, tells people when to throw and when to pull an ax off the target to ensure that no one is in the line of fire.
