Having a rough week? Need to let off some steam? We have the perfect place for you.
Toronto’s first “Table Flippery” quietly opened its doors about three weeks ago, and it’s giving residents a much-needed outlet for the stress that comes with living in a big city. The way Ye Olde Dandy’s works is simple: Customers come in, pay a fee, and in exchange, they get to angrily flip a table.
Every person’s secret, repressed desire, amirite?
“A lot of people have really enjoyed the idea of coming in and being able to unleash such a wave of emotion and it’s just something fun and silly and really engaging that we can do with other people, co-owner Matti Mclean says in the video, above. “It’s flippin’ fun.”
The possibilities are truly endless. But before you head over there and start hurling furniture around in a rage-induced fury, consider your table flipping options. For $5, you can flip a plain old table. For $10, you flip one with stuff on it, like board games and plastic-cup pyramids. For $20, you can really white knuckle it by loading up your canvas with breakable items like glassware.
You can watch people flip a few tables of their own in the video, too. (Also strangely cathartic.)
