Forget chocolates, toss axes for Valentine’s Day

Nicholas Blazanin, right, and Candice Hinds, left, finish their match-up by knocking axes during a Sunday league match. One of the rules of the facility is that people never hand axes to one another, but return them to the stump. Clinking axes becomes the new high-five. Julia Robinson/ FOR AMERICAN-STATESMAN


Nothing says “I love you” like a little axe throwing.

That’s why, apparently, Urban Axes is hosting a Valentine’s Day date night.

The Beer + Bullseyes event – “because it’s Valentine’s Day and it’s not all about roses and chocolates” – takes place from 7-10 p.m. Feb. 14 at Urban Axes, 812 Airport Boulevard. Cost is $40 and includes admission for two plus beer.

Axe-citing, right?
