Murder house? No! An axe throwing club located right across the river! Established in 2015, Stumpy’s styles their alternative group activity as a “social throwdown.” They’ll teach you how to handle an axe and provide the gear during 2 hour sessions. There are also theme nights, leagues, and a hatchet happy hour twice a week. Oh, and did I mention that it’s BYOB?

Russian banya comes to New York! The Russian & Turkish Baths in the East Village is an institution. Built in 1892, the authentic Russian bathhouse offers five different steam and sauna options ranging in temperature, including an oven-heated granite sauna, a Finnish cherry-wood sauna, and an aromatic white-tiled Turkish steam room, as well as an icy plunge pool and roof deck.

Gowanus Canal has long had a reputation for being one of the most polluted bodies of water in the United States. In 2010, it was even labeled a Superfund site. In spite (or because) of this, Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club is offering self-guided canoe tours with the goal of educating people about its history as a busy cargo transportation hub, and its future with environmental cleanup efforts.
