Best Place to Break Up with Someone: Hatchet House Throwing Club

Best Place to Break Up with Someone: Hatchet House Throwing Club

Does the phrase "We need to talk" sound better followed by "at the Hatchet House?" Probably not. Then again, the ax-throwing spot didn't win Best Place to Get Dumped; it won best place to do the dumping.

I kind of get it. Breaking up is emotionally taxing. It might be cathartic to let it all out throwing those hatchets — two-hand a few, if it makes you feel better. And who's going to try to change your mind or gaslight you as you heft a lumberjack's blade and hurl it at a wooden target? Once you've let fly all that stress and shoulder tension, you can clink pints and call yourselves friends.

If nothing else, it's as Humboldt as running into your now ex at the co-op. Which you're 100 percent going to do. You might want to book a little ax-throwing time after that, too. Starting Oct. 1, Hatchet House moves to the former home of Pacific Outfitters at 737 G St., where there will be room for larger groups and more games, in case you're looking for more of a cornhole breakup.
