Calendar: Hemp festival, 303 Day fun & 50 more events await in March 2016

Spring is in the air! Maybe a snow storm or two arrives later in the month. Snow or shine, make plans with your favorite peeps for some 420 fun!

For the food-minded folks, Fort Collins restaurant The Boot now features comedy nights, or celebrate the Denver-centric holiday, 303 Day, at Illegal Pete’s locations.  There’s family-friendly fun at the Second Annual Industrial Hemp Festival happening at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in the beginning of March. Intellectual stimulation can be found at Frank Talk, a cannabis science lecture on March 15. And learn about the creative bohemians who have influenced Denver cultural history March 26 at Mutiny Information Cafe. As always, plenty of inexpensive and rib-tickling Sex Pot Comedy shows around Denver will keep your outlook on life humorous.
