Remember, way back when, when the SoDo Theater closed and we learned that an axe throwing bar was going in? Well that axe throwing bar is called Savage Axe (seriously) and is set to open in May.
Yeah, I just let out a loud exhalation, too.
It’s 2021 for fuck’s sake. Were the bar owners paying any attention last year? You know, when the Washington Football Team and the Cleveland baseball team finally decided to change their names, and Land O’Lakes butter even dropped their racist imagery? No? I don’t know what’s worse: that they are out of touch with society, or that they clearly do not care.
Can we move on from making simplistic and gross associations with stereotypes of Indigeneity for capital gain? The bar’s logo is a rip off/riff on stereotypical tomahawk imagery, like this nonsense from Shutterstock. The word used in the bar’s name is deeply offensive.
But look, the bar is the “perfect place for a company team building meeting, bachelor or bachelorette party, date night, gender reveal party, or if you just need something fun and exciting to do!”
Nothing says “gender reveal party” than the threat of death and dismemberment. (And while we’re on the subject, it’s technically a sex reveal party, not a gender reveal party.)
You can follow the bar on its website for opening information.
