A man in Idaho has built a business around ‘recreational destruction’

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI/CNN) – Pretty sure we’ve all had those days where if we could just hit something really, really hard, we’d feel a lot better.

Well, an Idaho man turned those feelings into a business of “recreational destruction.”

Who knew destroying stuff could be so much fun?

“Dishes, electronics such as copiers, fax machines, printers, computer monitors, vacuums, we have large-scale furniture,” owner Tom Farrenkopf said.

Tom Farrenkopf owns “Das Breakroom” on Orchard Street in Boise.

He encourages you to suit up and pick your weapon.

“Here at Das Breakroom, our sole purpose is to provide a place for people to engage in recreational destruction. What we mean by that is come in and break stuff,” Farrenkopf said.

The idea is to let-off some steam.

“One day, I was having a horrible week, and I found myself on the verge of tears, and I was just pacing back and forth, like what am I going to do? I’m so frustrated right now, and I walked right here and broke an entire box of stuff, and ten minutes later, I felt perfect, fine,” Shultz said.

The owner opened-up April 15, the same day the state and the feds want your money.

“Vent that frustration that you have from filling out all those forms and paying those taxes,” Farrenkopf said.

“Das Breakroom” has happy hours before and after work as well. You can pay three bucks to break one item.

The other prices depend on what you want to smash.

“It’s a lot cheaper than some of the stuff I’d want to break at my own home, to be honest,” Shultz said.
