420 is Tomorrow: San Francisco Events To Keep You Smiling

Tomorrow is that festival day known as “420.”

If you don’t know what 420 is, that’s what Wikipedia is for (because you know the 420 page was written by a bunch of stoners):

420, 4:20, or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) refers to consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture. Observances based on the number include the time (4:20 p.m.) as well as the date (April 20).

You’d think San Francisco would be a great city to celebrate 420. It’s really just an ordinary day – because in San Francisco, everyday is 420. What 420 needs is a Easter bunny-type character who stuffs buds of Blue Mystic into 420 basket.

If you’re in the Bay Area, the site, I Read Culture, has a few 420 events you should check out:
