To help meet apparent demand for places to go imbibe and fling axes, another such attraction is coming to the Baltimore area, bearing the promising name of Stumpy’s Hatchet House.
Stumpy’s has been in heavy expansion mode since opening its flagship location in Eatontown, New Jersey, in 2016, with eight locations already in four states, plus nearly two dozen more (!) planned throughout the country, according to its website.
And now it’s time to move in on Maryland. The operators of the new Stumpy’s in Towson “are roughly hoping to be open within the next 30 days” at the Towson Commons shopping center, a spokesman said via email. Plans are in order for eight 11 throwing pits inside a lower-level space geared toward parties, corporate gatherings and other events.
Unlike the bar-equipped Urban Axes in Highlandtown, these franchises are BYOB (beer and wine, specifically), and offer sporting patrons buckets of ice to keep their brews cold while they’re tossing hatchets at fixed targets.
In addition to wieldy small axes, Stumpy’s will also have the pub game Giant Jenga, picnic tables, large couches and club chairs for seating, and “the aroma of pine,” per a release, with the goal to have “customers immediately feeling like they’re in their own back yard.”
To play, it’s $25 per person for a one-hour session for one to four people, or $40 per person for a two-hour session for groups of five or more.
Update: While the website for Stumpy’s in Towson says it will have eight ax-throwing pits, a spokesman said it will actually have 11.
