Don’t Miss These Fall Events at the Beautiful Chateau St. Michelle

Don’t Miss These Fall Events at the Beautiful Chateau St. Michelle

From pods of killer wales to powdery ski slopes, Washington State has always been a gem. But the state has gotten even cooler in the last ten years. Legalization of recreational marijuana is an obvious factor, but we can now also boast one of the country’s premier wine regions. Here at Bothell’s best pot shop, we’re all about enjoying both. And we’re loving the line-up of fall events at nearby Chateau St. Michelle. Although Washington wine has only recently taken its deserved place in the global market, Chateau St. Michelle was way ahead of the game. With fifty years in the business, the state’s founding winery has developed some serious know-how. So this fall we’ll be swinging by these Chateau St. Michelle events to sample their fine local food and wine: Bin on the Lake Wine Dinner (November 2) This Kirkland event features an original menu by executive Chef Frank Rog. Chateau St. Michelle winemaker David Rosenthal will be overseeing the wine tasting and talking guests through the wines and pairings. Prosciutto wrapped figs and braised short ribs? Yes please. Tickets are $125 per person. (If you want to get your appetite in gear beforehand, swing by South Seattle’s favorite pot shop to stock up on fine Washington weed.) Blind Taste Like a Master Sommelier (November 2) Here at Have a Heart Skyway, we like to think we’re pretty good at blind tasting. When it comes to weed anyway! But we’re excited to improve our wine tasting vocabulary with Ste. Michelle Wine Estates’ Master Sommelier and Senior Director of Wine Education, Rob Bigelow. Starts at 6:00 PM. Approximately 90 minutes. Tickets are $90....

That’s Right, Weed Weddings are Totally a Thing Now

That’s Right, Weed Weddings are Totally a Thing Now

To paraphrase Billy Idol, it’s a great time for a weed wedding. Just picture it: The tables are laden with mint petit-fours, canapes, and gorgeous bouquets in hand-thrown ceramic vases. The bride looks stunning in an off-the-shoulder gown, and the cakes are towering works of art. Content guests wander from tent to tent as the band strikes up a Louis Armstrong tune. “Cannabis weddings are now a growth industry with the attendant specialists, consultants, wedding planners, and budtenders. And traditional wedding industry professionals like caterers and photographers are cashing in on the phenomenon by advertising their services as ‘cannabis friendly.’ But this is just the first wave.” It’s a typical wedding on the classier end of the spectrum. But the discerning guest may note a few unusual details… At this wedding, the longest line is not at the conventional bar but at another tent that’s removed from the rest of the party. Yes, the cannabis bar is the place to be. Here, a licensed weed sommelier loads bongs, introduces the selection at a dab bar, and dispenses custom cannabis cookies, tarts, and brownies. Yes, this is a cannabis wedding. Not only does it have a bud bar (adults only and segregated from the rest of the party), but the flower arrangements showcase gorgeous flowers of Grape Ape and Blackberry soda. And those vases? They’re actually custom bongs. The party favors? Hand-blown canisters decorated in theme-colored ribbons and filled with pre-rolled joints. Even the ceremony features weed, with the bride and groom sharing a special pipe. Cannabis weddings are now a growth industry with the attendant specialists, consultants, wedding planners,...

How to Keep Your Place from Smelling Like Weed

How to Keep Your Place from Smelling Like Weed

Not sure if your place smells like weed? Try this: Go outside, and run up and down some stairs – or around the block. Then, re-enter your place and take a big sniff. Getting the blood pumping is how professional “sniffers” reset their noses when testing perfumes, coffee and other things that require an on-point sense of smell. If you’re a regular weed smoker, you’ve probably gone nose blind to the smell of your own house – and airing out the weed smell every now and again is a sure sign that you’ve graduated to adulthood. But how do you keep your place from smelling like weed in the first place? Have a Heart has some suggestions. Top 5 Ways to Keep Your Place from Smelling Like Weed Keep your stash in a tightly sealed container. This will not only preserve the freshness of your weed, it’ll also help keep the smell contained. Bothell’s best pot shop has a great selection of the best marijuana storage containers. Check out your airflow. If you’ve got central AC, you may want to alternate it with using a window fan to help pull smoke out of your place while rotating fresh air into it. Blow your smoke into a filter. These are great for apartment living where the whole building shares an air circulation system. Invest in an air purifier or try some all-natural odor eliminating products like activated charcoal, or a spray with odor-eating enzymes. Switch to vaping! Vaporizer pens deliver cannabinoids directly to the brain without carcinogens or a smell that lingers – they’re the perfect option for people who...
