Rocky Balboa may be a fictional character, but that’s not getting in the way of South Philly Bar & Grill celebrating the punch-drunk underdog as if he were really one of our own with a daylong party Saturday. To mark the 36th anniversary of Rocky’s release, the bar and restaurant will screen all six of the franchise’s installments in reverse order, beginning with Rocky Balboa at 11 a.m. Of course they’re tying it all into food and drink specials, too. If the Balboa Punch on offer doesn’t put you down for the count, SPB&G; will have Italian Stallion salad, Italian meats pizza, and a Rocky Road bread pudding dessert available. Following the viewing of the original film, a Rocky lookalike contest will commence at 9 p.m. There’s also going to be trivia contests, a video tribute, and surely Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” played over and over again.
