A shop in downtown San Diego, CA, where people go to break stuff. You buy it, you break it. That's the idea. Come in. Break stuff. Smile. The first and original store of this kind in The United States.
Alisha: "My boss is a total jerk. I need to go to Sarah's Smash Shack, write his name on a plate & destroy it! That way, I can go in tomorrow, smile at him, and continue to pretend that I like working for him."

Amanda: "Oh my god! I went there last week with my boyfriend, and we wrote our ex's names on shit, and smashed the hell out of them. Then we totally made out!"

The act of being able to meditate on something, while smashing the hell out of something else, i.e. focusing on something positive, while literally destroying something negative (such as a word, scribbled on a plate).

Relaxation, elevation, focusing energy and letting go, in a safe and controlled environment, through physical exertion, destruction and vocalization, as opposed to insisting that meditation can only be done in an uncomfortably seated position, while chanting and breathing deeply.

Meditation for those of us who actually deal in reality and real feelings and emotions (like frustration and anger, as well as happiness and satisfaction), and can meditate any time, any place and any way we like.

Meditation for people who would rather take their stress out on some hapless inanimate object, than to cast the blame on someone else, like those self righteous shits do, while they breathe deeply, do yoga and eat tofu, as they point out how awful everyone else in the world is.
Steve: "Breathing deeply ten times just doesn't cut it for me any more. I need to step it up. I need to get real. I need some kinetic meditation. I'm going to go fuck some shit up, and get rid of some of this chip on my shoulder!"

Vanessa: "Hey, you know what? I know exactly where you can do that. It's this place called Sarah's Smash Shack, in San Diego!"

Destruction in which no one is hurt, with a positive end result, such as catharsis, joy, jubilation, uncontrolled laughter, a feeling of release, an elevated spirit, a sense of relief, a sense of empowerment, a sense of adventure, or just the satisfaction of doing something that you would never have done, otherwise. Specifically, the smashing of ceramic and glassware, in a place created for this purpose only.

The act of releasing negative or pent up energy in a safe, controlled environment, so as to avoid lashing out at others, and to perpetuate proper behavior in public.

Smashing something, and having an incredibly fun time doing it.

Packaged and introduced to mainstream America, and brought into widespread modern acceptance, by a shop in San Diego, called Sarah's Smash Shack.
John: "I need to do something fun and different tonight. I feel a little pent up and irritated by life in general. I think I'll go take part in some constructive destruction at Sarah's Smash Shack. Yeah, I'm going to smash some shit up, and let go of this crap."

Christine: "I've heard of that! Constructive destruction! Smashing shit, where no one gets hurt, and they clean up the mess. No regrets! What a great idea. I've got some crap, I need to throw away, too!"
