Tomorrow is April 20th, which is the day you should buy a plane ticket to Colorado (or to California and pretend you have glaucoma: it’s international cannabis day! While we absolutely do not condone illegal activities or even the madness-inducing vices of reefer (never!), we just so happen to have a list of landmarks and destinations that might be of interest to people who are marijuana enthusiasts. We compiled this list for educational purposes. Obviously.
There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
The Cannabis Cafe
The first restaurant in the nation to allow patrons to smoke,
the Portland cafe also has a long menu full of various food for human consumption. We can't find the actual menu, but don't worry: by the time you'll want to eat something, you'll be so high that you might even eat an old feminist rally flyer you found lying on the ground. (Did we mention this is in Portland?)
A sub sandwich chain open in college towns across the country,
CHeBA HUT maaaaaay market their "toasted" sandwiches towards a certain demographic (for goodness' sake, their sandwiches are called blunts!), but the owners insist that they're really just a sandwich chain with a clever marketing gimmick. At the same time, their website has a huge 4/20 countdown clock, so...make of that what you will.
The Ganja Gourmet
While the famous medical marijuana dispensary on Denver, CO
no longer has its full menu, which boasted ganja pizza, ganja hummus, and "Ganjanade " ("Tasty Ganja Tapenade made with tomatoes, garlic, and olives"), it still sells what might be the classiest edible we've ever seen -- an "almond cookie-cake dipped in chocolate and covered in almond slivers (2g)". Why has no one made high-end ganja financiers or madelines? Johnny Iuzzini, you might just have a new backup plan.
Publicly, the famous Bushwick pizzeria has only ever done their infamous high-end weed tasting menu once (which was so good, a noticeably stoned GQ correspondent wrote that
"this needz to happen allo the time"). We can't say for sure if it's back, but there's plenty of inspiration for weed cocktails ("piña colada with weed"? Yep.)
Okay, so, this one isn't exactly a marijuana-themed restaurant. But Top Chef Winner Hosea Rosenberg has hosted more than one cannabis dinner at his restaurant (courses are paired, none of the food is actually infused). And be honest, doesn't that burger look like the perfect munchie?
