I mean, I don’t think I need to say too much more than the title of this post, but I will anyways.
The SF Bay Guardian is throwing the Stoned Soul Picnic on 4/20 at El Rio. The Guardian wants to show their support for support for medical marijuana by raising money for Americans for Safe Access, an organization that’s been an important voice for patients in the middle of all the political turmoil surrounding the recent pot club crack downs. So they’re partying about it and donating the money.
Here’s the goods from the press release:
Please join the Guardian for a Stoned Soul Picnic, our contribution to Cannabis activism where all proceeds from the evening – including all bar sales from 4-6pm, donations, and raffle ticket sales – will go directly to Americans for Safe Access. ASA is the largest national member-based organization of patients, medical professionals, scientists, and concerned citizens promoting safe and legal access to cannabis for therapeutic use and research.
The Guardian’s Stoned Soul Picnic will feature:
*DJ Carnita (Hard French) spinning stoned soul grooves as well as a special 420-themed reggae set from DJ Mr. Lucky (I&I Vibrations)
*Stand-up comedy from Travis McFarland (LA), George Chen (SF), and Jesse Fernandez (Berkeley)
*Safe Cannabis resources and outreach from dispensaries and activist organizations, including American for Safe Access, Sweetleaf Collective, Oakland 420 Evaluations, Green Brothers, Compassionate Health Options, and more
*Raffle tickets with awesome prizes, including Roughneck skate brand goodie bags, museum tickets, restaurant gift certificates, stoner paraphernalia, medical marijuana evaluations, and more
*A free LiveFoto photo booth with marijuana-themed props
*Three kinds of stoner-friendly grilled cheese sandwiches made by Apothocurious for purchase
Also, after the Stoned Soul Picnic Red Hots Burlesque will present Reefer Madness!
Sounds like a lot of fun. Me thinks there will be a lot of people who’s faces will hurt from laughing too much.
