Well, technically, Lumberjaxe is a space where members can throw the wood-chopping tool at a target, and it just happens that the space sells beer too. Those looking to test their lumberjack skills can book an hour for $20. The business sits at 933 Louise Ave. [EaterWire]

Bitty & Beau will open a second shop in Charleston. [CNN]
