The Austin Chronicle's Chrontourage and La Zona Rosa Backstage Bar (612 W. Fourth) are teaming up to host this superbadass Ping-Pong tournament celebrating the release of Balls of Fury starring the one and only Christopher Walken. The action takes place Thursday, August 23rd with registration starting at 6pm (21 and older) and the first serve at 7pm. All entrants will receive a free pass for two to see an advance screening of Balls of Fury. The Backstage Bar will also be running some drink specials including $2 domestics and $3 wells. Did I mention that there is absolutely no charge to sign up for this tourney? That's right, it's totally free, which leaves more disposable income to spend at the bar, or the concession stand during the flick.
