Food, Beer & Other Dope Things to Do on 4/20

Lots of fun, including a "Junk Food" dinner, to have with the buds during the unofficial holiday.

Once a year, many of the restaurants, breweries, and drinking spots like to have fun on April 20 — they throw events they normally wouldn’t do throughout the course of the year.

Whether it’s a cold beer, a snack to munch on, or live music, there are a few things to take part in on this unofficial holiday that’s celebrated by many.

Events will continue to pop up the closer we get to the day of celebration and we’ll keep the list updated, but check out what we’ve found so far to see if you’re interested.
