Batter Up! It’s the World Series at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill

The great American pastime has finally reached its zenith as Major League Baseball wraps up the 2016 season with the World Series beginning on Tuesday, October 25th, and Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill is the best place to catch the action in North Portland.

This year the real “October surprise” just might happen during the series, with the long-suffering Chicago Cubs favored to win. Of course, this storyline has followed the Cubs through multiple seasons only to end in a disappointing loss at the championships. It’s been more than 100 years since they’ve taken it all the way, but this year might break that disappointing trend. We’ll just have to follow along to find out.

The Cubs began the season in February as the betting man’s favorite to win the World Series as 4 to 1 favorites, and they amassed the best record this season, winning the National League’s notoriously difficult Central Division by 17.5 games, eight games better than any other MLB team.

The Art of the Grindhouse


Art by Edward Kersh

Greeley Grindhouse has been showing the best in cult and B movies at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill for over four years now. Churning out the masterpieces of bad theater with the sharp wit of grindhouse moviegoers who’s biting remarks are as sharp as the fangs of a mangy werewolf.

Each month the Greeley Grindhouse feature is recreated in poster form by two talented artists who share their vision of these classics in beautiful—if somewhat irreverent—art.

Our long-term artist, Edward Kersh, puts his signature style into every image he’s created for our movies. Strong black lines and bold color schemes depict the threads of off-beat humor, gore and destruction that weave through the plots. Adding familiar touches from the movies, his posters are always sought after by fans.


Art by Andy Vanderbilt

Greeley Grindhouse’s newest artist, Andy Vanderbilt, began his sojourn into the Greeley Grindhouse art world with the July premier of our Sharknado marathon and followed it up in August with Shaft in Africa. His modern style puts the subjects up front with bright colors and themes that match the era. We’re looking forward to seeing how far his artistic mind can take these reinterpretations of our beloved classics.

Edward’s and Andy’s posters have become a favorite part of the Greeley Grindhouse experience and at the intermission during each feature presentation host Mac Bell holds a raffle for someone to win that month’s selection. Join us at Greeley Avenue Bar and Grill every month for one of the best in “worst” movies and maybe you’ll be coming home with one of the famous Greeley Grindhouse movie posters! (Dates change so check the Greeley Avenue Facebook page for the next showing.)

Are You Ready for Some Football!

It’s that time of year again!

Greeley - Bar Scene3.jpg

The sound of the referee’s whistle, the clashing helmets of the defensive line, the beautiful arc of a professionally thrown ball—football season is a great time of year. For North Portland sports fans there’s no better place to celebrate the season than at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill.


Our cable sports packages, shown on our twelve TVs, will be broadcasting the best in college and NFL action throughout the season and our crowds will have plenty to say about the calls, too. It’s always a great time to join in on the “armchair quarterback” debates over an ice cold beer, and our rotating taps have all the best brews found in Portland.

Take a look at our menu and you’ll see the tailgate food you crave is waiting for you, too. Our Out n’ In Burger has fast become a favorite. It’s a double-double burger with all the trimmings, on a brioche bun and house-made sauce. Add some fries and you’ve got an upgraded American classic. And back by popular demand, our weekend “NFL Breakfast” features two scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage and a warm buttermilk biscuit smothered in our own sausage gravy. It’ll fill you up while you ease into your day of football.

Don’t forget our Hot Wings with your choice of five different sauces and our Cheeseburger Sliders. Amber, Greeley’s manager and chef, recently took the Barfly and Budweiser’s top honors in their sponsored slider competition.

Join us every game day this season for the best football coverage, at the best sports bar in North Portland; Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill!

Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill Hosts Barfly and Budweiser’s “Slider Competition” Champions

Our chefs have taken us all the way to the finish line with their Budweiser Bacon Jam sliders at the Barfly and Budweiser’s “Slider Competition” at Greeley Avenue Bar and Grill!

Amber and Bode crafted an amazing slider, building on the great menu items you’ll always find at Greeley. Their creation included crispy fried onions, a blue cheese sauce, arugula, tomato and the show stopping ingredient; bacon “jam.” They paired it with a red, white and blue potato salad and the judges all agreed that it was a winning combination.

Barfly and Budweiser occasionally show up at Greeley to test out the imaginations of our chefs and bartenders. This time they brought a kegorator of Bud with them and Greeley acted as the starting point for the daylong competition on August 19th when over 60 people showed up to see who’s slider would take the day.

Four bars participated and the competition was stiff but in the end the best slider won. (Don’t tell anyone, but we already knew we’d win with Amber and Bode’s sliders—they always create delicious food).

Greeley often hosts special events, including our traditional New Years Eve parties, Pub Crawl and Patio Crawl events and even bachelor and bachelorette parties. With two heated patios and a large and open space inside the bar there’s always enough room to accommodate whatever size group you expect.

So, congratulations to Amber and Bode for their win in the Barfly and Budweiser “Slider Competition” and to Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill for its title as one of North Portland’s favorite sports bars!

Can you feel it? It’s your competitive spirit calling you back to one of the Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill’s most popular events of the season. Our “End of Summer” golf tournament!

Yukon - Golf

Our June golf tournament was such a success we decided to go another round before the summer was put to bed for good. Grab your clubs and your ugly golf knickers and meet us out on the links for another challenging tournament. Golf lovers from all three of our family of bars, the Yukon Tavern and Mock Crest Tavern, will be showing up to take the team title for Best Ball 2016.

Yukon - Golf 4

In Best Ball play all golfers compete to get the lowest score, or “best ball” for their team, which is then used as the team’s final score for each hole, going up against the best score from the other teams. Best ball can be played with teams of two, three or four players, so grab your friends, family, or random people you met at Greeley and head out to Wildwood Golf Course. Teams will be randomly selected and each player will do their best to carry the round in hopes of taking the whole tournament and claiming champion status of the course.

Yukon - Golf2

Register by August 13th at the Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill to reserve your spot in our “End of Summer” Golf Tournament happening on August 20th.

Tee off time will be at 1pm and all skill levels are welcome. Sign up now because space is limited.

Greeley - Olympics

Queue the music.

Light the torch.

Raise your country’s flag and watch as the best athletes in the world compete at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro!

“The Olympics remain the most compelling search for excellence that exists in sport,

and maybe in life itself.”

-Dawn Fraser (Australian swimmer, 8-time winner at the 1956, 1960 and 1964 Olympics)

 Greeley - Olympic2

The Olympic Games are back again this summer, with all the suspense, agony and triumph we’ve come to expect from the games. From the moment an athlete walks onto the track at the opening ceremony, to the moment they feel the weight of a medal around their neck, they take us along on their journey to greatness.

           “For athletes, the Olympics are the ultimate test of their worth.”

-Mary Lou Retton (American gymnast, 5-medal winner at the 1984 Summer Olympics)

 Greeley - Olympics1

It doesn’t matter which sport you follow, the Olympics is the ultimate test of strength, endurance, and personal best. This year the games might prove especially challenging as news of Rio’s unpreparedness has athletes wondering what to expect when they arrive in Brazil’s second-most populated city. But there’s no doubt that whether or not the country is ready for the games, our athletes certainly are.

           “My only focus was the Olympics because in my sport, that is the ultimate.

Everything is geared toward that, and my entire life was geared around

getting there and winning gold.”

-Cammi Granato (American ice hockey, 2-medal winner at the 1998 Winter Olympics)

DSC00944 copy

Catch all your favorite summer Olympic sports and the athletes you love to follow on Greeley’s twelve TVs from August 5-17th. See if swimmer, Michael Phelps will top his 22-medal sweep from 2012, or if the women’s gymnastics “dream team” an live up to their name. And, what stars will emerge from the track and field and soccer competitions. You won’t want to miss out on all these great moments of Olympic action at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill!
