Hapa Sushi advertises a marijuana pairing menu

Hapa's sushi -- soon paired with everyone's favorite herb.
Even if it's nothing more than a publicity stunt, it's a brilliant one: The homegrown Hapa Sushi chain is running ads promoting a pairing menu unlike any other in the country (because it wouldn't be legal anywhere else!). Whether you'd like your raw fish with indica, sativa or a hybrid, Hapa's got some suggestions for you, along with ideas about how to craft your high-as-a-kite dinner conversation.

This isn't the first time that the Boulder-based Hapa has used clever advertising and current events to pull people into its restaurants. In 2007, the eatery ran ads poking fun at Barry Bonds, who was about to break Hank Aaron's home-run record, declaring Hapa's meat to be steroid-free. The Boulder location also gave out orange underwear with a prominent "Hapa" stamp during the People's Republic's infamous naked Pumpkin Run. And in 2009, Hapa printed ads in a number of publications (Westword among them) with maps that showed where the Hapa locations were in relation to the then-new medical marijuana dispensaries popping up all over the place.

In other words, this is one restaurant that's determined to be at the forefront of every stoner's mind once the munchies start calling...

They do not actually sell cannabis or allow you to smoke in the restaurant just so that is clear... called yesterday... pretty disappointing...

Aren't the stoners more likely to dine at Taco Bell or something more fitting of their measly budget?

Great way to write off tons of dope at tax time. It's a work expense right?

You should do an investigative story on Hapa and how the managers sexually harass all the female employees.

They make weed for kids, too, don't worry.

I'm surprised Taco Bell didn't come up with this idea first.

Seems stupid to me-appetite goes down for 20 minutes or so after smoking for anyone paying attention to their bodies.

Totally agree. Hapa was the first sushi place I went to after moving here from California. Overpriced for shit sushi. It's like you're just paying for the loud music and decor.

little-known fact about Blue Fin Tuna, on average it takes 15 pounds of other fish to produce one pound of edible bluefin tuna.

Hapa sushi in lodo is garbage. Rookie sushi for people who want to be seen. Go to Aoba for the real deal
