When you go to a gourmet restaurant, you might find yourself asking the sommelier to recommend a fine wine to complement your meal. But now, as more states begin to legalize recreational marijuana use, diners will soon be asking another question: What fine weed will enhance my dining experience?
Patrons of Colorado’s Hapa Sushi have already begun asking this important question thanks to the restaurant’s new pot-and-dinner pairing menu. Back in 2009, the restaurant launched a print campaign that encouraged smokers to come eat sushi to satisfy their munchies. And now the chain, with locations in Boulder and Denver, is back on the pro-weed scene, urging locals to toke up and eat up — at the same time.
Here are some of the suggested dinner-and-dope combinations:
- Pakalolo Shrimp with Pakistani Kush
- Honey Miso Salmon with Sour OG
- Katsu Curry with Blue Dream
Oh and don’t worry — the dining room is “ergonomically designed to reduce paranoia” so you can just sit back, take a toke, and then probably start giggling about how weird it is that something that used to swim in the ocean is now inside you.
