CAN I KICK IT? / feat Kick Boxer / Recap

On Tues. we introduced CAN I KICK IT? to 2018 and what better way to bring in the new year than doing so in-style.  Nu Wears, a new men’s accessories line by notable producer SlimKat76, held down the pop-up shop – upping our “style game” as well as the “style-game” for those fashion-forward people who bought the brand’s hand crafted ties and handkerchiefs.

Thank you to everyone who attended, props to Songbyrd for hosting and shouts to Terry for holding down the bar, salute to Nu Wears for supporting, and much appreciated to everyone who spread the word.  Lastly, salute to DJ Iran for dropping some gems on the turntables.  If you stayed long enough you got blessed with some rare samples.

Next up, on Tues. Feb. 27th we bring you a classic from the Jackie Chan archive – Drunken Master.  See you then and for the full recap click Read the rest of this entry

CAN I KICK IT? ‘Fan Pick’ Edition – Recap

For this to be our first ‘fan pick’ edition of CAN I KICK IT? we were pleasantly surprised.  When you do something new, you have no idea what’s going to happen, but then you have moments like this where people participated with lots of and in some cases – very random suggestions of movie titles and then there’s the surprise announcement of the film that night, which, as we hoped would happen, proved to be the icing on the cake.

In the end, Road House, a classic title from the late 80’s starring Patrick Swayze (RIP), won the night.  Props to Songbyrd for hosting and thanks again to everyone who came thru as well as all of those who spread the word.  Lastly, special shout to Maishah for also run our pop-up shop.  To check out the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
