At some point we all make mistakes and have to eat crow. In the past six weeks we have come to enjoy the taste of crow. From arguing semantics about being in the city of Fort Worth, to dealing with noise complaints from neighbors. In the end we learned some valuable and costly lessons; but are better for it.

The internet is full of trolls, or as many call them; keyboard warriors. Well, we got one who feels to point out each and every little flaw in our social media posts, website, and our personal life. Man their life must really suck something fierce to spend so much time worrying about ours. Seriously, they spent the better part of four days trying to tell me how bad I suck because of things that happened in my past. They couldn’t even bother to get updated on the information, so wth? Why you mad bro? They learned that I know who they are and don’t care because they cannot do anything to us. They tried and failed to hack our reservation system.

We learned very quickly how to improve security….

Our neighbor didn’t like the noise levels (understandable). For six weeks we spent as much as we earned to dampen the noise. Finally, they involved their family who involved the city code inspectors and chief of police. We educated them on the noise levels and our efforts to mitigate the noise. Zero fines or summons later, and a remodel.

We learned very quickly how to deal with complainers who are never happy…

Even during these trials opportunity continued to present itself. Sometimes in strange ways. Opportunities that included a new business opportunity that we passed on. We forged some great deals with suppliers for our merchandise that we use to break. Some deals that may eventually affect our consumers (think Southwest Airlines type business deals). There is even an opportunity that we are considering as I type this post.

We learned every opportunity is not a good opportunity, but don’t pass on the great ones!!!!

What I am getting at, is that no matter what happens; learn from it. Good or bad, learn something. Like ignoring a troll, how to communicate with neighbors to achieve a common objective, and recognizing good and bad opportunities to improve upon your objectives. Life presents these challenges every day. Some are insignificant while others are monumental. Take something away from each and every one of them and learn something.

Today, I learned our WHY from a book. I knew what it was, but couldn’t describe it. now I can, but that is for another post.


  • positive review  OMG. so I have seen this stuff on TV and let me tell you.. this is just amazing! My sisters and I decided to go release some steam last week. This was one of the best experiences ever. we definitely released some steam and more.... from years of built up stuff. This was therapeutic and keeps us out of! Yesterday we celebrated my nieces birthday, my nephews birthday, and my sisters birthday by doing the splatter party. We had a blast. kids had so much fun... i mean who doesn't want to just make a mess and create art at the same time? we intentionally wore all white to save our clothes and create our memory outfit. we will see how they come out! So ... the best part about this place was really the wonderful couple that greats you, makes sure you are good, breaks it all down for you, and genuinely wants you to have a blast. They saw that we needed to really release some stuff and went out thwir way to bring frames and markers so we can write it down and break it and let it go. They really went above and beyone to make sure we cleaned up properly and our cars would not get messed up. they lined up the cars with plastic and made sure we had everything to clean up as much as possible. Good customer service is hard to find. People that genuinely want you to leave there feeling happy and better is hard to find... but they did that and I will drive 3 hours on a regular to support their business!! Do not hesitate to book.... you will be glad you did! Thank you guys for all yall did and all the extra time you took to make aure we were great. Tip on smashing: eat first, hydrate that day - it is a workout and you exert tons of energy! Tip on splatter- Do not let the kids rub paint all over Bring extra clothes and socks, Bring something to cover your seats. Bring wipes and soap! I would also bring some containers to put canvases in...the flatter ones created for under your bed.... normal size could probably hold two... and know that you gotta go home to clean up before going! but it is a blast!

    positive review  Brought my son and a couple of his buddies and cousins for his 14th birthday. This place did not disappoint. They all left there talking about how much fun they had and what they would want to do “next time” we come:) Owners were very friendly and communicated so well throughout the whole party package booking. Would highly recommend!
