AUSTIN, Texas — Urban Axes is an ax-throwing venue in East Austin, the first of its kind in the U.S.

Open since September at 812 Airport Blvd., the Philadelphia-based business allows people age 21 and over to join leagues, play during open walk-in sessions or participate in two-and-a-half-hour group events with trained coaches. League players compete against others to see who can throw their ax closest to the bullseye.

Ax-throwing is an excellent workout, too. 

Bonus? It's BYOB. Though it's probably not like beer pong though where if you drink more, you perform better. Just sayin'. Sharp objects, people.
