As an editor, I get sent a lot of pitches. Each day, my inbox is flooded with different products, venues and services. It’s true that it takes a lot to get noticed, but I do glance over each and every one of them. I was sent one a while back from a place called Stumpy’s, a new spot for teambuilding. It wasn’t the name that caught my eye, though…it was the activity! Stumpy’s is a hatchet throwing facility in Eatontown. Yes, you read that right, hatchet throwing. It’s like darts but with a hatchet. Don’t worry –they provide safety equipment and an explanation before your team begins –though this may be one where you leave the legal department back at the office. If you’re looking for something really different that lets everyone seriously blow off some steam, this may be exactly what you need. Sessions run for two hours and include the training and a lesson, because unless you’re Paul Bunyon, you’ve probably not thrown a hatchet of late. Stumpy’s also has a cute private room, the Wood Shed. It’s the perfect post-throwing spot with a rustic feel complete with a farm table accommodating up to 14. For more information, email info@stumpyshh.com, call 732.544.5069 or visit their website.

October is the month of fall color viewing, pumpkin picking, and pizza. Yes, October is National Pizza Month, and if you’re looking to commemorate the occasion, head to New Jersey.

Others may disagree—let’s make that, others will certainly disagree—but last year Food & Wine Magazine named New Jersey the best pizza state in America, followed by Connecticut and New York in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively. Pennsylvania landed in seventh place and Massachusetts nabbed 10th place.
