Forged Axe ThrowingLocated just an axe toss from Coast Mountain Brewing in the heart of Function Junction, Forged Axe Throwing might be the most perfect representation of the "lumbersexual" aesthetic, if you judge by the groomed beards in the crowd. Participants laugh as they hurl hatchets at timber bull’s-eyes at the end of each of three lanes separated by chain-link fences. A Zen-like technique of gently releasing the axe rather than chucking it seems to produce the best results, though a tight grip when handling a hatchet is obviously key. After taking your Paul Bunyan star turn, follow the parade of the flannel-clad to one of the nearby breweries.
