Fun times at the Game of Axes

Axe throwing isn’t just for lumberjack competitions anymore! For us, axe throwing is a game of fun more than it is skill. In our quest for fun, we ventured to Game of Axes in Boynton Beach, Florida. Game of Axes is a fun, laid back axe throwing bar where participants can drink and throw axes at targets for fun or competition.

Axe throwing is a hot, new trend sweeping across the nation. It’s actually not as scary as it looks. Axe throwing bars have spread rapidly over the past few years, with professional leagues forming everywhere. Axe throwing is the new bowling! Actually, in my opinion, axe throwing is more enjoyable than bowling. After a short clinic on proper form, we were cut loose to release our inner lumberjack.

“Hurling a deadly weapon at a target was somewhat liberating; actually exciting.”

Before I knew it , I was making the kill shot and felt like a total bad ass. However, the bad ass feeling quickly subsided when I wasn’t able to make clutch! Clutch is the rare 7 point 5″ circle target that must be called loudly, for all to know you aren’t going for anything but the Clutch. With that being said, the point structure and rules are pretty meticulous. But, when you’re not keeping score none of that matters.

I encourage everyone to head over to their local axe throwing establishment and cut loose. Axe throwing is an experience everyone should try. Who knows, you might decide you love throwing deadly weapons and turn pro!

Halloween is When?

This year Halloween, the 31st of October, falls on a Thursday. Which is inconvenient for some. It is so inconvenient there is a group petitioning to have HALLOWEEN be changed to the last Saturday of the month. There is a huge debate here no matter which side of the fence you’re on. My only concern is that if it changes, what am I supposed to do with all of my “date” defined decorations? I’ll have to replace decorative pillows, crafts, dinnerware and much more. I wonder if the petitioners have thought about that.

Capital One Cafe is Truly about Community

If you are fortunate enough to have a Capital One Cafe in your area, run over, enjoy a coffee and set up an account in minutes. They offer everything a typical bank offers and more!

Upon arriving at the Capital One Cafe in West Palm Beach, Florida I was greeted with a friendly Welcome, sitting down and opening an account over a cappuccino which I received at 50% off because of having a Capital One Card.

The space is truly about “community” offering community work spaces, wifi, a cafe, games, finance seminars and much more! I feel like a member of a Capital One society. A community within a community. The only unfortunate thing is there are not many branches outside of larger size cities. Hopefully, that will change soon. And, if you are visiting in an area that has a Capital One Cafe and need a place to “work”, stop in for a coffee and work on their public wifi. It is not just for people who bank with them.

In South Florida Capital One Cafes are located in West Palm Beach, Rosemary Square and in Delray Beach on Atlantic Avenue. Maybe I will see you there!

I Heart Mac n Cheese Opens in Jupiter

Who doesn’t love Mac n Cheese? It’s the ultimate comfort food! Mac n Cheese doesn’t have to be packed with bacon or topped with lobster to stand alone as a meal or side dish. Luckily for Mac n Cheese lovers, I Heart Mac n Cheese opened its doors for all of the cheesy good stuff – and more!

Indulge in made to order macaroni bowls with all of the toppings. Choose from meats, veggies, cheese or sauce. Not only do they have tasty mac but, grilled cheese tops the menu with tomato soup. Their cup of mini chocolate chip cookies are a must; even if you want to take them home for later, they are marvelously soft and chewy.

We will definitely be going back to expand our taste buds. Let’s face it, you can only eat so much at one sitting. For our first trip we ordered a mac n cheese bowl with broccoli and bacon. Fried mac n cheese bites with a side of those yummy cookies! The Chefs Specials are 6 different selected bowls for $8.95. Affordable pricing will keep you coming back for more! I Heart Mac n Cheese is located in the Sims Plaza on West Indiantown Road across from The Home Depot. Their hours of operation are 11am – 9pm Sunday through Thursday and 11am – 10pm Friday and Saturday. http://www.iheartmacncheese.com
