Stumpy’s 46 in Fairfield

“Stumpy says let’s bury the hatchet!”

After opening their first location in Eatontown in 2016, Stumpy’s Hatchet House has made quite a name for themselves.

They were the first ever indoor hatchet throwing range in the United States, and now they have new locations popping up all over. Most recently, the craze has come to Fairfield with Stumpy’s 46.

This location lets customers enjoy food and drinks while they practice their throws. It has been said that people can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour to hit a target.

Since there is no perfected method for throwing a hatchet, you have two hours in your pit to decide how you want to toss it. Many regulars choose between the one-handed or the two-handed grip, but always follow Stumpy’s rules by throwing it overhand.

Stumpy’s is all about having fun! You can throw any type of celebration, from a Bachelorette party to your break up party…you name it, they applaud it! They will even hold an “Axe Your Ex” divorce party, which is pretty much promised to make you feel better. They also hold birthday parties and corporate events.

Even if throwing hatchets isn’t your thing, you can play Giant Jenga and Cornhole, watch Direct TV and enjoy their free Wifi.

Safety is extremely important. Before you start, you have to go through a brief training session which teaches you to always keep your eye on your ax and that no trick shots are allowed. You also have to be 21 or old to join in the fun!

With Stumpy’s being the big trend in New Jersey, spots fill up fast. So, we recommend you book your trip in advance.

Stumpy’s is open Wednesday through Sunday and will cost you $40 for a two-hour session. 

Fairfeild Location: 373 US-46 West, Suite D107 Fairfield, New Jersey

Each room was specifically designed to feel different from the rest while maintaining a sophisticated and chic style. The vision for the project was to create a hotel that is welcoming, comfortable, interesting and ever-evolving, and the couple is excited to offer guests a unique and exciting experience.

The hotel is expected to open in the spring. For more information, click here.

Freeholders Honor “Dress For Success” At New Madison Headquarters

Dress for Success Northern New Jersey – 10 Counties celebrated its move to a newly refurbished space with a special ribbon cutting after being evacuated from their headquarters earlier this year due to a fire.

 DFS of Northern New Jersey is a chapter of a national nonprofit organization that focuses on offering long-lasting solutions to enable disadvantaged women to break the cycle of poverty and to help them achieve economic stability. They serve more than 1,400 women in Morris County and surrounding counties.

Earlier this year, a fire ravaged its operation in Madison, hampering the efforts of this group to help the many woman who call on its services.

“Dress for Success is continuing its life-changing work for women who need a leg up to succeed professionally and personally,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Deborah Smith, who attended the re-opening ceremony. “Their work has real impact in important ways, by making a difference in women’s lives and the lives of those around them.”
