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

Friday The 13th at Blairstown Museum

By: Maria Fernandez

No matter the age, everyone is familiar with the Friday the 13th film series. What people may not know is that the original movie was filmed in parts of Hardwick and Hope! Additionally, the camp scenes were filmed at the Boy Scout Camp and Camp No Be Bo Sco (in Hardwick). In honor of Friday the 13th the Blairstown Museum is hosted a Friday the 13th celebration.

Visitors were able to purchase tickets for a 3 hour trolley tour or VIP dinner event, and have the opportunity to meet Robbi Morgan and Steve Dash. Robbie played “Annie” in the first movie, and Steve was the first adult Jason as portrayed in the second film.

Blairstown, and the local museum, celebrate every Friday the 13th so if you couldn’t make it this year there’s always next year. Entry to the museum is always free and Blairstown, in general, is a quaint and scenic little town to visit. As a special treat, Mrs New Jersey International Parker Sanchez was leading one of the tours.
