2021 SPLIFF Film Festival Add to a List
As everyone's favorite day to smoke weed draws near, it's time for another installment of short cannabis-themed films made for and by stoners just like you! You'll have a grand old time watching the screenings themselves, but you'll be even more delighted by this year's live(streamed) viewing parties hosted by various dynamic weed-loving duos, from The Stranger's Chase Burns and Jasmyne Keimig to Seattle drag stars Cookie Couture and Betty Wetter to comedians Alyssa Yeoman and Erin Ingle. You can also check out SPLIFF 2019 Add to a List and SPLIFF 2020 Add to a List on demand whenever you want.


4/20 at Chalice Farms Add to a List
Oregon dispensary chain Chalice Farms will unveil a new product (the "Drip Stick," a pre-roll created with Bald Peak flower and a potent amount of live resin concentrate) and dish out giveaways on 4/20. Namely, the first 20 customers at each location will receive a free, limited-edition t-shirt designed by local artist James Reka. They'll also have lots of locally made weed accessories on deck, with proceeds benefiting the artists directly.

From Marijuana to Cannabis: The New Normal Add to a List
Nearly fifty years after Oregon became the first US state to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana, cannabis is finally being woven into mainstream culture. This online talk with Oregon Humanities will trace the cause and effect. 

Elastic Time: A Richard Linklater Master Class Add to a List
As the pandemic continues to skew our individual and collective sense of time, it's as good a time as any to delve into the work of Gen-X director Richard Linklater, for whom the passage of time has always been a theme worth investigating. For the second installment of this Movie Madness masterclass, the director will join you as you dissect Dazed & Confused, perfectly timed for 4/20.


Chopped 420 Add to a List
Portland-born, Los Angeles-based comedian Ron Funches will step in as the host of this weed-centric cooking show inspired by Food Network's Chopped. Like its predecessor, the contestants—all up-and-coming cannabis chefs—will be tasked with dishing up an appetizer, entrée, and dessert using unpredictable ingredients, this time with weed- or CBD-infused flair. Will the judges (chef Esther Choi, drag performer and cannabis activist Laganja Estranja, chef Luke Reyes, chef Sam Talbot, and comedian Tacarra Williams) get too stoned to form coherent sentences? Watch and see. 

Broccoli Talk Podcast Add to a List
This monthly dispatch from Portland-based Broccoli Magazine editors Lauren Yoshiko and Mennlay Golokeh Aggrey is like a smoke session with your most scholarly stoner friends. They've taken a bit of a break, but you can scroll through their archives at your leisure for takes on cannabis in the digital space, cultural appropriation in the weed industry, and interviews with industry experts who represent marginalized voices. Needless to say, the magazine is also worth a subscription for gorgeously illustrated articles on cannabis culture.


Doe Donuts Add to a List
Need the perfect salty-sweet snack for vegging out during your stoned Netflix binge? Look no further than the vegan donut shop Doe Donuts' "CBD Couch Potato" donut, which will be available through April and May and is made with calming CBD, chocolate, kettle potato chips, and truffle pretzels.

Portland Pizza Week 2021 Add to a List
Though not explicitly a 4/20-inspired event, it's hard to argue that the Portland Mercury's week-long pizza extravaganza featuring specially crafted $2 slices and $16 pies is not a stoner's paradise. Check out our complete guide Add to a List .
Various locations


Eem Add to a List
The smash-hit spot's comforting fusion of Thai cuisine and Southern barbecue is ideal for intoxicated consumption. As The Portland Mercury's Andrea Damewood wrote, "Eem is the restaurant equivalent of Lizzo: infectious, critically and commercially acclaimed, and addictive AF. You cannot go wrong in ordering, from the hot fried cauliflower to the divine brisket in white curry to the fried rice with burnt ends. And both the cocktails and mocktails are some of the best in town—my favorite piña colada, made with coffee and salt to keep it from being too cloying, is on the menu again." 
Takeout, delivery, or outdoor seating

Fills Donuts Add to a List
This relatively new Berliner-style donut shop is co-owned by Portland-based chef and cannabis pro Leather Storrs, also known as the co-host of Netflix's Cooked with Cannabis, so it's safe to say it's culinary weed expert-approved. And the out-of-the-box flavor combinations, like maple bacon butterscotch or pimento cheese with hot honey and sesame seeds, are downright stoner-friendly.
Pickup or delivery

Man Vs. Fries Add to a List
Last November, this delivery and takeout pop-up with locations in various cities brought its menu of hefty French fry-based creations to the Park the Carts pod, serving loaded asada fries and fry-stuffed SoCal and NorCal-style burritos and quesadillas with Flamin' Hot Cheetos. You can choose between straight or curly fries, pollo or carne asada, and SoCal or NorCal. There's also fried New York cheesecake and fried double-stuffed Oreos, both breaded with Krusteaz mix. The menu is available for pickup or for delivery via DoorDash, UberEats, Postmates, or GrubHub.
