The Mad Axer invites the community to its grand opening and ribbon-cutting on Friday, April 1, at 6 p.m. at 17600 Collier Ave., Lake Elsinore.

The ax-throwing lounge was created by our longtime friends: Tom Crunk, Jacob Pytlik, Dane Wunderlich, and Luke Pytlik. All four partners of 4 Bros Entertainment, LLC, have backgrounds in business ownership.

A Menifee resident since 1987, Crunk also owns the Joyful Noise Coffee in Menifee and the Clever Fox Escape Rooms in Menifee and Temecula. He specializes in lighting and employment services.

Jacob Pytlik is an Air Force veteran with more than 19 years of experience in the automotive field focused on employee development and sales. He moved from Florida to California to further his piercing career, then joined forces with The Mad Axer team. Pytlik said he has a passion for the strange and unusual.

A Murrieta resident since 1989, Wunderlich is the owner of Woodwork By Dane and specializes in designing and building one-of-a-kind pieces. His furniture has been featured in various publications as well as on HGTV “House Hunters.” The outdoorsman enjoys fishing, camping, backpacking, hiking, and anything that takes him way off the beaten trail. Being friends with the Pytilik brothers for more than 20 years, it was natural to join their journey in creating The Mad Axer as the resident woodworker.

Luke Pytlik is a Marine Corps veteran. A tattoo artist by trade, Pytlik owns Essential Ink Body Art in Murrieta. An outdoorsy guy, Pytlik was a participant on the Discovery Channel’s “Naked and Afraid” in 2014.

The Mad Axer offers 30-minute axe throwing sessions for $20, 60-minute sessions for $25, and 120-minute sessions for $40. Business hours are Monday through Thursday from 2 to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 2 to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 12 to 8 p.m. For more information, visit
