New Bike Racks at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill

Last January, one of our bike racks bit the dust when it was run over during one particularly icy day. Well, it’s spring now and our new bike rack has arrived just in time to accommodate the many pub-crawlers that make Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill start to see when the skies clear and the temperature begin to rise.

We’ve matched the red paint on our new rack to match our older, undamaged one and we picked a fun bicycle shape to make it stand out even more. Just as it did before, the bike rack marks the border of our parking lot and will keep your bike safe and secure while you enjoy an ice cold beer inside our bar.

Here’s a photo of the damaged bike rack. Luckily, no one was hurt and no bikes were crushed. And, in our opinion, the new red paint is a much better choice than the blue of the last one.

You might see Greeley’s owners, Jon and Rainer, and their cycling friends hanging out by the bike racks this summer as they get ready to take off on one of their favorite activities, cruising through North Portland on of their summer pub-crawls. They’ve got several favorite stops along the way, including their other NoPo bar Mock Crest Tavern, and at each one they order a different beer that marks that particular leg of the trip.

This spring break get out your bike and get your friends together for a North Portland pub-crawl, and don’t forget to add Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill to your route!

March Madness is off to a surprising start, with Duke getting knocked out, but Kansas and North Carolina are steamrollling the field and look very, very tough. Xavier is the cinderella team, beating #2 seed Arizona and going to the Elite 8 as a #11 seed. Local favorites Mid-Major Gonzaga and Oregon have both advanced to the Elite 8 and will have us rooting loudly tomorrow!

Following the Trail Blazers at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill

Come out to Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill now for the second half of the 2016-2017 basketball season of Trail Blazer basketbal!.

Greeley Avenue Building

We’re on the back half of basketball season and, unfortunately, our beloved Blazers are facing an uphill climb if they want to rack up the wins before the championship games. This year the injuries have taken their toll and the trade of center Mason Plumlee to the Denver Nuggets in July crippled the Blazers’s chances of being a force on the courts.

Greeley - Portland Trail Blazers.jpg

One bright spot on the team is C. J. McCollum, who set a new career high in points against the Minnesota Timberwolves in January and is currently riding an eight game streak of scoring above 25 points for Portland (something only surpassed by Geoff Petrie—11 games, and Clyde Drexler—9 games). In one recent game against the Dallas Mavericks McCollum scored the final basket from the top of the lane with only 0.9 seconds left, giving the Blazers a 114-113 win, so there’s still the outside chance that a surprise win will keep us going further than the gamblers expect.

Greeley - Growler

Don’t forget to bring your Greeley Growler with when you come to the bar. You’ll want to be ready with your favorite craft beer when you’re catching a game at your friends’ or family’s home.

Greeley Grindhouse Update: John Carpenter’s “The Thing” Rescheduled

greeley-grindhouse-the-thing-posterIt’s cold, it’s snowing, the wind is whipping up a hell of a storm. Throw in a shape-shifting alien and we’d find ourselves in the same predicament that R.J. MacReady and a group of scientists are faced with in John Carpenter’s 1982 cult classic, The Thing.

Horror and mystery take over the team’s seemingly boring lives at the Antarctic’s American Research Base when an escaped alien begins to make himself at home in their bodies. So, who do you trust? We’ll find out when The Thing comes to the big screen at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill.

This is one of host Mac Bell’s all-time favorite movies and is the perfect choice for this particularly cold month, with it’s frozen and dark South Pole location. “When The Thing was released in 1982 it received a cool reception that Carpenter attributes to its R rating and the fact that it premiered two weeks after E.T. began its domination of the box office,” says Mac Bell.

Thirty-five years later, this film is one of the most respected sci-fi horror films to come out of the 80s and has been the inspiration for video games, action figures, theme parks, books and comics, and a prequel also titled The Thing that was released in 2011.

Friends of Greeley

Join us on Thursday, January 19 at 7:20pm for Greeley Grindhouse’s showing of this classic sci-fi horror film. Our kitchen will be serving up hot food and our bartenders can warm you with a shot of whiskey, just like Kurt Russell’s character, MacReady, did to steel his nerves as he took on The Thing.
