Ah, April 20 — the day Denver is hazy with a cloud of marijuana smoke and becomes a different sort of Mile High City. Our own local holiday offers plenty of special deals for those who have the munchies after partaking (or for anyone with a serious appetite).
Ace Eat Serve is serving $4.20 specials all weekend long. Lucky snacks, fried kimchi with ranch dressing, and matcha cotton candy can be enjoyed on their spacious patio. Ace’s sister restaurant down the street, Steuben’s Uptown, will likewise offer a menu of bites priced at $4.20: Steubie Snacks, disco fries, fried oreos, and boozie shakes will all be offered. Ace Eat Serve, 501 E. 17th Ave., 303-800-7705; aceeatserve.com. Steuben’s Uptown, 523 E. 17th Ave., 303-830-1001; steubens.com.
At Zeppelin Station, a Midnight Munchies party gets underway on the 20th from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m., with DJ Rock City spinning at Big Trouble until 1:30 a.m. Each of the dining concepts is offering a 4/20 related special, like Au Feu’s Stoner Snack (house fried potato chips, cheese sauce, smoked brisket, and chives) or Gelato Boy’s Stoner Sundae (one-scoop split of mascarpone and midnight gelato, cinnamon crunch sesame croutons, whipped cream, crushed salted peanuts, and banana bourbon sauce). 3501 Wazee St., Suite 100, 720-460-1978; zeppelinstation.com
Hopdoddy has created a creative burger in honor of 4/20. The High Roller, available only on Friday is made with a taco-seasoned beef patty, pepperoni, mozzarella, Flamin’ Hot Cheeto ketchup and cool ranch fries, all in between two hemp seed buns. Served with a side of a spoonful of cookie dough. 1747 Wynkoop St., 303-446-2337; hopdoddy.com
