Denver blog posts still have trouble spelling the word "pavilion."

At our Cafe Society blog, Jonathan Shikes reveals that the Denver County Fair has decided to shelve a plan for a beer pavilion even as it's enlarging its pot pavilion.

Nope. Both MUST be mixed. Unless you're some kinda pussy.

Can I enter my homegrown in a county competition? That is a dream come true.

Westword, do you put up these tag lines on purpose, so you can laugh at that people commenting, who clearly don't read it? :) There will be MORE beer there, people!

Denver never ceases to amaze me! It will be interesting to see how different things will be this year.

No, Clara, there's not. Smoke makes my sinus swell and gives serious migraines, in a solid or edible form my throat swells up- classic signs of a fairly serious allergy. My boyfriend starts coughing up blood if around the smoke longer than about 5 minutes. Thank you for your condescension about allergies to this. I don't care if people do it honestly, especially in their homes, because it's something I can avoid there.

I don't even go to family and friend picnics because they all get drunk and fight. If people could drink moderately it would help.

There's probably a pot strain to deal with your alleged pot allergy.

Are you a tripping, loudmouth, stinky drunk? Thanks for staying home.

YEAH. No rude, drunken, loud, stinky drunks. I might go this year. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SEEING OUR CULTURE TURN ON IT'S HEELS AWAY FROM LOUD STUPID DRUNKS. The drunks have been ruining public events and family affairs for years. Time to move over and let us have some clean fun.

Should have both but only allow to do one or the other ...

If pot culture didn't bring all the grossest people in existence, like it did in civic center park on 420, than it would be a great thing.

No pot in the pavillion, they stated that in the original announcement.

Well, I guess I can't go this year. My boyfriend and I are both really allergic to pot. If they had it a ways off of the main grounds, but it sounds like as a major pavilion it'll be right in the middle of things. Another place we have to avoid or go to the hospital...

Nothing like an ice cold blunt on a hot summer day. Oh wait. ....

I was a beer judge at the fair last year. Got sick foe sampling so many bad home brew beers. So the pot pavilion sounds much less nausea inducing.

Man does not live by smoke alone. Beer is our friend!

I can still get beer there though right?

i think they should have both, so the world can see the difference between a drunken douchebag, and a nice, relaxed pothead.

I would rather be around 10,000 stoners than 10,000 drunks ANY DAY. Fuck alcohol

There will be no actual marijuana of any kind on the fairgrounds ... No plants, no smoking, no edibles.  We're following all of the laws.  Info is at www.denvercountyfair.org.

Excuse me. I smoke weed and I'm hotter than you. Lol And if you think there is a correlation between pot and the way people look, well, that makes you stupid and ugly.

Man there are pot heads everywhere. They help make laws, they collect your garbage, they checkout your groceries, they stand next to you in the elevator and you would never even know it, there just people and you can't tell the difference so why are you being an asshole about it?

There will be no marijuana on the grounds - at all.  No plants, no smoking, no edibles.  Info is at www.denvercountyfair.org

No shit, it isn't going to be in an enclose area, stop being dramatic. I'm sure plenty of people complained about beer allergies after prohibition as well. Lighten up will ya?
