Thursday, January 28 I had the pleasure of attending Mason Jar Event Group's Winter evening. The night began with a mellow party-bus ride that picked up guests from Denver then Boulder. It took us first to Headquarters dispensary to pick up our goodie bags, which contained our cannabis pairings for the evening.
When we arrived in Longmont, we were greeted with a beautiful cabin adorned with Christmas lights. We mingled to live music while sipping on fancy cocktails and snacking on pork empanadas served on literal silver platters. This opening to our five-course farm-to-table meal was paired with our Strawberry Cough pre-rolled joints classily presented in a "Let's Burn" Kush Kard. The inside of the card had details about the strain, including its attributes such as happy, uplifted, euphoric, energetic, and relaxed - all great effects to get the evening started off right.
When it was time to sit, Kendal Norris gently ushered the crowd to their seats with a soft instrument. After a brief introduction to the evening, we began being served our Blackbelly catered dinner.
1. First, we had roasted red pepper soup complimented by Love's Oven Rosemary Parmesan Crackers infused with .5 mg THC per cracker.
2. Roasted organic winter brassica salad with apples, dates, and hazelnuts. I have to say: I hate salad, but loved this one. Sweet, smoky, and fresh.
3. Mary's Free Range Chicken "Coq au Vin" served with house-made pasta and paired with Canna-tsu bud. Canna-tsu is a strain high in CBD, perfect for leveling out the high at the end of the night before returning home. During the meal, individuals came around to the tables delivering fully-prepared PAX vaporizers for easy consumption.
4. For dessert, we had an amazing chocolate espresso torte with salt caramel, Farmer's Porch cinnamon cacao Styrian pumpkin seeds and Washington elderberries. This was served with Marley Coffee paired with our Medicina Toasted Marshmallow Drops enriched with CBD. We just squirted the small bottle into the coffee mug and voila! Again, the high CBD infusion here was a good end to the evening.
We ended the night with some family photos (courtesy of Lauren Gibbs) and climbed back onto the party bus for a relaxing ride back into town. All in all, a glamorous evening with responsible and wonderful adults enjoying cannabis in an elegant and tasteful manner. Definitely a night for the books.
