Sierra Nevada launches into world record books

On Thursday, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company launched their “Big Little Thing” keg 438 feet, breaking the Guinness World Record. The brewery used a 20-foot high trebuchet-style catapult to launch the keg. The brewery filled the kegs with water instead of sacrificing beer, thankfully.

Back to the big screen: Cinemark Theater reopens

Chico’s Cinemark Theatre has opened its doors for the first time in three months. Masks are required and hand sanitizer will be throughout the theater. The theater has a new buffer technology so when tickets are purchased, it will separate viewers so parties are spread out within the theatre. Private watch parties are also available for groups of up to 20 people.
