It’s Greeley Grindhouse time again! Join the fun on April 25th for “The Street Fighter”. Sonny Chiba, scheduled for February, didn’t show due to kicking butt and cracking his DVD. A reliable source says recovery has gone well, and the “The Street Fighter” will appear for his scheduled performance. Classic grindhouse trailers will air before the fighting event begins at 7:20 p.m.
Sonny Chiba is the star of this martial arts flick, and was a pivotal figure in the 70’s explosion of martial arts movies as the lethal “fists for hire”. Unlike Bruce Lee, Sonny Chiba wasn’t a graceful, fluid fighter. However, don’t mistake his butt kicking skills. According to Imbd.com Sonny became the “ferocious machine that mowed down his opponents with his fists and feet, always with a menacing grimace on his face!” This movie is also noted as the first film to receive an X-rating in the United States solely for violence.

Grab a brew before the fun gets started. Always available drafts include a range from Pabst Blue Ribbon, Guinness, Bud light and Mirror Pond to the rotating beers that include:
- Portland Brewing Rose Hip Gold
- Widmer Brothers Hopside Down
- Fullsail Weizen Bock
The Widmere Brothers Hopside Down is a new beer from Widmer Brothers Rotator IPA Series called Hopside Down India-Style Pale Lager. This beer is an “aggressively hopped, cold-fermented brew” that brings together the clean crisp finish of a lager with the hoppy aroma & character of an IPA with an 6.7% ABV.
Thanks for all your support during March Madness and rescheduling Greeley Grindhouse. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
