TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Despite being in a pandemic couples that ABC 27 talked to on this year's Valentine's Day said there are plenty of ways to celebrate love in Tallahassee.

Corrin Statler and Jacob Cutbirth have been dating for just over a year. They said Valentine's Day isn't their favorite holiday but decided to get out and join the fun throwing some axes at targets.

William Tetsworth, the owner of Tomahawk 51, told ABC 27 before the pandemic started that Valentine's Day was his busiest day of the year.

With reservations booked throughout the day, it's giving his business some much needed relief.

"It's good to see a big surge coming back out of the pandemic when bars and restaurants were released," said Tetsworth. But everyone has slowly kind of ramping back up people feeling safe and coming out and throwing. Just doing any activity really."

In order to help with some lost income during the pandemic, Tomahawk 51 has opened a mobile axe throwing trailer for parties and events.
