Flavor, music and art are just a few things on the agenda for the City of Fort Collins in celebration of the 4/20 holiday.

Chebahut offers an array of "munchies" just perfectly sweet and strange (captain crunch crispy treats?) enough to satisfy any red-eyed, hungry individual. On 4/20 the Chebahut located on West Elizabeth will be holding PB&J eating contests and other fun events to celebrate a very green holiday.

“The Colorado Room is a community, it’s kind of like home,” said Colorado Room employee Amy Guerrieri. “Instead of looking at someone like a customer, we (look) at people like friends. There are going to be a lot of young adults and very kind people with good attitudes. … We have drinks, art, music and food. What more could a stoner want?”
