Impact Axe, an indoor axe throwing and craft beer lounge, is the latest in recreation in Rocklin—and it’s entirely safe (yes, even with the alcohol). The business opened just under a month ago by three couples who wanted to create a space for people to spend time together and enjoy each other’s company. They have partnered with Wounded Warrior Project and were involved with the first day of Rocklin Police’s six week K-9 training! Kristi Torrington, one of the partners, said, “We want to make you feel at home when you walk in.

Fast Freddie’s

Fast Freddie’s has a new home in Rocklin! The business, owned by Adan Lopez, reopened its doors in the Stanford Ranch Plaza three weeks ago after years of being located in Roseville. Lopez took over the shop from its original owner Freddie 16 years ago, and he kept the name—and most importantly, the brick ovens! The pizza place makes most everything from scratch—dough, sauce, lasagna—and emphasizes its relationship with the customer above all else. “Most people come in for the service,” Lopez said. “All our workers are friendly, and we make everyone feel like family.

Dogtopia

Dogtopia, the newest doggie daycare center in Rocklin, had its grand opening August 24 and is already thriving. The daycare’s number one emphasis is on safety so that your dog is entertained and well-cared for the entire day. This is all evident in the initial evaluation with every dog and required standard vaccines before being accepted, playrooms that separate dogs by temperament and size, and rooms and crates that are deep-cleaned twice daily.

Owner Nate Yungvanitsait says that “the goal of the restaurant is to teach our customers about beer instead of just serving it to them.” Employees are well-trained in the art of beer and routinely offer samples to ensure that customers find something they will like. UoB’s wide variety of IPAs, lights, sours, Belgians, and stouts is sure to please.
