Happy Holidaze: 5 totally righteous ways to spend 4/20, dude
Have you met my friend Mary Jane?
DALLAS Saturday is April 20 and unless you live under a rock (perhaps a stone) you know the implicit significance of this weekend. The air will smell more floral, shaggy kids in tie-dye will be out in full force and life will seem more hilarious than usual.
But 2013 is one for the record books. Folks in Colorado and Washington will legally be able to celebrate our nation’s most recognized unofficial holiday, 4/20 (also known as variations of National Marijuana Smoking Day), and most likely will disappear from satellite radar under a thick cloud. Looks like rain, surely.
Now, we wouldn't suggest you do anything illegal, man — this is Texas, after all. But here are a few weekend activities that might get you in the right state of mind.
Grow some herbs at Earth Day Dallas in Fair Park and hang with all the environmentally conscious hippies. You could learn something.
Jam out to some righteous reggae and rock music at DFW NORML’s 4/20 party at The Green Elephant. Bring your hoops, fire poi and anything that smells like sage.
Satisfy your munchies in Deep Ellum at the North Texas Taco Festival. It’s free and not Taco Bell, for once.
Grab a beer. Rahr & Sons is offering a Cheech and Chong commemorative glass on Saturday brewery tours and World of Beer in Dallas will be featuring Stone Brewery with free munchies to loyalty members. Untapped beer and music festival is also taking place in Fort Worth, which will be totally radical.
If you end up on your couch Saturday, there’s always the option of peanut butter and jelly pancakes. Trust me on this one.Follow @tineywristwatch
