Channel your inner lumberjack at 755 North Prior

Axe-throwing, log-rolling, nail-driving, pulling a two-man saw: do it all at Lumberjack City, now booking groups starting April 20, 2018. The entertainment spot at 755 North Prior has some job openings, too, for "lumberjacks and jills" to coach, keep score, and ring the bell whenever a blade hits a bullseye: for job info, see the Facebook page.) Look for a grand opening party later this spring.

Fun, competitive axe-throwing started in Canada, and it's catching on in the US. In fact, Lumberjack City will be the flagship for a national franchise, says Keith Beveridge of Twin Cities–based parent company Kam Sharp Enterprises. So far, customers include bachelor and bachelorette events (special deals for divorce parties!) and workplace groups looking for afternoon team-building sessions. But really, isn't flinging an axe a great way to celebrate any occasion, even finishing your taxes?

Among neighbors at 755 North Prior, Keith is planning cross-promotions with BlackStack Brewing and Can Can Wonderland (the venue has no liquor license as yet) and hopes to work with 651 Media on video production.
