Have you checked your calendar lately?

The annual 4/20 weekend is nearly upon us, and we can already smell the smoke in the air in the Mile High City.

Okay, maybe that's just the smoke from our pot critic's desk.

But that smoke signals an ever-growing list of cannabis-centric events in Denver next week.

Here's just the start.



Thursday, April 17

Put yourself in the right frame of mind for the weekend with some bowls and laughs with comedian Andy Haynes's Midnight Run at the Oriental Theater, 4335 West 44th Avenue. Haynes, who's been featured on Comedy Central and Jimmy Fallon, has put together a pot-centric set wherein he gets nice and ripped before stepping on stage "in the warm embrace of the green Muppet arms that we call flower." The night kicks off at 8 p.m. and runs late; for more information and tickets, visit theorientaltheater.com.

If old-school stoner comedy is your thing, join legends Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong at the Fillmore for a night of laughs and music with classic groove-rockers War. You'd better have some green handy, and we don't mean weed: Tickets start at a whopping $112 for general admission. For more, head to ticketmaster.com.



Continue for the top 4/20 events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Alamo Drafthouse is showing Monty Python's "The Life Of Brian" on the afternoon of 4/20.  That sounds like more fun than dealing with any of the massive crowds at these events.  Besides, I'm already leaving the house once that weekend for Record Store Day :)  Is anyone going to post a roundup of sales dispensaries might be having?

@DonkeyHotay  Why don't you show up?  I'm quite sure there would be a lot of "Puerile Pot Punks" who would love to see you.
