Weed all about it!
On April 20, the day that stoners around the world celebrate their love for marijuana by getting extra high, Brooklyn will hold a variety of events that joint enthusiasts will be able to blaze on by. Here are a few green activities for you:
The “performative spectacular” immersive show “420: A Ganjapalooza” will expand the April 20 holiday all weekend, with three celebrations of dank dancing at the House of Yes. At the show, performers will do aerial tricks and dinosaurs will lumber about as the audience settles in to have its minds blown, while also eating brownies and others munchies that the organizers have prepared.

Over the last month, fans of Nitehawk Cinema sifted through a bracket of 16 stoner films to find the one that deserves to screen for 420, and they have chosen “Dazed and Confused.” The ’70s-set coming-of-age comedy, which beat out “Half-Baked” and “Up in Smoke,” will screen at midnight on April 20 and 21. And fortunately for those with the munchies, Nitehawk has an excellent menu of stoner-friendly food, including popcorn, queso, and tater tots.

‘Friday’ is high-day
No stoner film is more appropriate to watch on Friday, April 20 than the 1995 comedy “Friday,” starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker as drug dealers who smoke up their whole supply. Each ticket to the screening at Videology comes with a glass of “Waldos’ Special Ale,” the dankest, hoppiest beer ever brewed by Lagunitas, with a whopping 11 percent alcohol.
