Buds for Celebrating Bowie at Benaroya Hall

Buds for Celebrating Bowie at Benaroya Hall

2016 was a rough year. We don’t think we need to get into too much detail. You know what we’re talking about. Luckily you have something to kill the pain. It’s called Bowie at Benaroya Hall. So this atrocious election year stole Prince, Muhammad Ali, Leonard Cohen, Alan Rickman, Gene Wilder, Merle Haggard, Guy Clark, Leon Russel, George Michael, and David Bowie?* Instead of wallowing misery, light up a bowl of fine recreational marijuana and celebrate three things: the year is over, weed is legal in Washington, and you still have the art that made these stars great in the first place. Want proof? Head over to Benaroya Hall on January 10 to hear the Seattle Symphony and a full rock ensemble celebrate Bowie at Benaroya Hall. Led by guest conductor Brent Havens, the musicians promise a symphonic odyssey through Bowie’s catalog. Naturally your favorite Greenwood marijuana store is here to provide the needed supplies for this odyssey. So swing by Have a Heart Greenwood and pick up a strain worthy of Bowie. For starters, Galactic Glue sounds Bowie-esque, and delivers a euphoric high that will enhance your enjoyment of the soaring strings and trippy sound effects. (And at 18.9 % THC, you won’t get too ripped to be out in public.) But our Bowie appropriate strains don’t end there. Perhaps some Alien Rift? What about Sky Master? Dragon Pussy? (Bowie seems like he’d have been all over that.) But you definitely can’t hit this event without sampling a hit of Sensi Star Dawg. This strain from Origin Cannabis Company is Bowie appropriate in name and in results—a tingling...

Get Ripped for the Reindeer Festival

Get Ripped for the Reindeer Festival

The other day we got stuck in traffic on 1-5 for two hours. The reason? The freeway was choked with shoppers trying to get in and out of the Northgate Mall. From the freeway, the mall parking lot was a glistening mass of cars, teeming with harried holiday shoppers. You could almost smell the anxiety. And that’s why we’ll be avoiding the mall and looking for shopping experiences that are actually fun. Here’s our master plan for a relaxed shopping experience. 1. Head over to Have a Heart. Your favorite Seattle weed shop will provide the recreational marijuana that will enhance and mellow your holiday shopping experience and you can also pick up some fun gifts for your adult friends. Our Greenwood, Belltown, and Fremont weed shops are stocked with edibles, topicals, and the perfect stocking stuffer for any stoner: pre-rolls! Just imagine your loved ones’ delight when they dig into their stocking and are surprised by handfuls of Cookies N Cream joints, Zoots caramel brownies, or Dark Chocolate CBD Bars from Evergreen Herbal! 2. Smoke a lot of weed. This should really be obvious. 3. Choose a one-stop destination that’s actually fun. Our top recommendation is Swanson’s Nursery. At the famed nursery’s annual Reindeer Festival, you can pick up a Christmas tree, check out crafts and jewelry from local artists, buy holiday trinkets and decorations, and find cool gifts that will keep on giving, like tiny flowering succulents and cacti. If shopping starts to seem like a buzzkill, there’s a model train village for your stoned entertainment. And you can always take a break to trip out on...
Get Hungry: Seattle Food Truck Winter Feast

Get Hungry: Seattle Food Truck Winter Feast

If you’re a stoner, or even if you aren’t, there’s reason to celebrate: Seattle Food Truck Winter Feast is coming, this Sunday, December 11th from 10am-4pm. Back by popular demand, for the third year in a row, it’s also been dubbed the Seattle Street Food Festival or the Winter Feast Holiday Bazaar. But whatever you want to call it, it’s all good, just be sure to sharpen your appetite and get ready to nosh it up. As if we need to remind you, don’t fail to remember to burn one beforehand for best results. Blunt, bowl, bong rips, whatever your inclination is, you’ll be mad at yourself later for failing to get high first. And who can help better but Greenwood’s own Have A Heart, the best little weed shop in Seattle? To get properly hungry, we recommend you try Medi-Haze with high CBD content, which also keeps you clear-headed and tingly. If you want to stay cognizant and have your wits about you, Medi-Haze comes highly recommended. Here’s what to know about Seattle Food Truck Winter Feast: You’ll have access to more than 20 food trucks, street food vendors and local shops, so you might as well knock a few more people off your shopping list. And shopping or doing just about anything stoned just makes life that much more, shall we say, interesting. So we have a few other weed and food pairings for you from the Seattle Food Truck Winter Feast lineup: Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonades of Kirkland — pairs nicely with Forbidden Farms Hawaiian Sugar Cookie Otto Donut — pair with Acapulco Gold The Puds — pair with...
Mexican Polka and Highballs: Have A Heart History

Mexican Polka and Highballs: Have A Heart History

At the intersection of NW 85th Street and 3rd Ave. sits Greenwood’s finest marijuana shop, Have a Heart, and the history of the building has garnered a lot of attention lately. So let us be the first to tell you why because — Have a Heart history is full of twists and turns! Today’s pleasantly clean and welcoming green-and-white checkered façade is as fine a storefront as any Seattle marijuana shop around today and gives us extra points for cosmetic detail. You certainly feel more confident entering its doors than you would a nondescript, sign-less drab brick building. Not all Seattle pot shops have been able to outfit their buildings with as much artistry and for Have a Heart Greenwood, we are grateful. When you’re in need of Seattle weed, Have a Heart is, hands-down, the go-to pot shop in the neighborhood. Not only do they run wicked cool specials and have daily Happy Hours, they are staffed by expert budtenders who enjoy your questions and passing on their knowledge to you. The next time you’re en route to Golden Gardens Park or you just want to kick it at Green Lake, take a step in the direction of Have a Heart Greenwood, and don’t let the modern décor fool you. Here’s what this interesting building has been up to for the past few decades. Have A Heart history: Decades before Have a Heart Greenwood or the legal recreational marijuana trade would see the light of day, this building was home to a tavern/dance club called “The Up and Up,” circa 1960s/1970s. So next time you’re eyeballing Snoop’s Dream...
Dab and Dine Around Seattle

Dab and Dine Around Seattle

You may still be able to get in one last extraordinary meal on the cheap with this year’s Dine Around Seattle when you visit a participating local restaurant. We’d like to thank the Seattle Good Business Network for making the sinfully good selections attainable to a wider spectrum of fine folks with a taste for quality. The way it works is local restaurants who typically source local farms, wine suppliers, etc. will offer select menu items at a decently reduced rate. They’ll offer two, three and four menu selections for $22, $33 or $44. We like to make work up our appetites before such an outing so we stock up at Fremont’s finest weed shops, and the evening turns into Dab and Dine Around Seattle. As devoted fans of the Dab and Dine Around Seattle program, we can tell you it’s a great way to sample the menu of many higher-end chefs. It’s like an indulgence but without the painful price tag. Take for instance, xtBallard’s Porkchop & Co, who have a flair for fun food that is locally sourced. Not all participating restaurants include an adult beverage with their menu of 3 choices, but Porkchop and Co. does. There’s a Chai Old Fashioned with Elijah Craig bourbon or a nice glass of Rioja. Or, choose the Fremont Bonfire Winter Ale, which everything goes down better with. There’s also a seasonal soup or a kale salad and for the grand finale, try the Ricotta Cavatelli but don’t be surprised when they serve you winter luxury pumpkins with escarole, brown butter and porcini broth! We love this. We don’t always...
