Still Smokin' 

If there's one thing that unites all stoners — other than a big fat doobie — it's a Cheech & Chong film.

In the 1970s and 1980s, films like Up in Smoke gave free-lovin', pot-smokin' hippies something to watch while they lit up (and subsequently pigged out on potato chips and ice cream). Even younger generations of potheads and those who never touch the stuff have shared a chuckle over a worn-out VHS copy of Still Smokin'.

Yet in recent years, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong haven't been all that close. Marin took the straight path for a while with roles in Disney films such as The Lion King and Cars. Chong stayed true to character, playing a stoner on That '70s Show. Then he spent some time in the slammer after federal agents raided his California-based bong company.

But by mid-summer of last year, the duo proved their comedy routine hadn't gone up in smoke with the announcement of a reunion for their "Light Up America" comedy tour. They'll be stopping by the Horseshoe casino to deliver their classic bong-hit-inspired humor on Saturday.

Cheech & Chong, Saturday, February 7th, 9 p.m. $60. Horseshoe Casino, 1021 Casino Center Dr. (525-1515).
