At Denver's Ganja Gourmet, You Leave Hungrier Than You Arrived

When the real estate market tanked last year, Denver fridge magnet salesman Steve Horowitz had to regroup. For months, he lolled around on his couch in sweats, smoking pinners, spooning up Häagen-Dazs, and watching Animal Planet. Finally, he devised a new plan of action, one perhaps inspired by the possibly fictitious brain-storming process we just imagined. Horowitz's new venture is green, though not in the way that makes strategists and scenesters flip. Just after Thanksgiving, he opened Ganja Gourmet, a sit-down restaurant on Denver's Reefer Row of pot dispensaries featuring a menu of grassy goodies for prescription holders. For starters, there's "ganjanade," "laganja," green salad, empanadas, jambalaya, and pizza, as well as an assortment of house-made sweet leaf treats. We haven't tried the food, but we do applaud Ganja Gourmet's financial aid program for veterans and people with disabilities. You won't find a deal like that in Golden Gate Park.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
