Pot Party at the Cheba Hut

Posted By on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 at 2:46 PM

The Cheba Hut, Tucson's pot-themed sandwich shop, is celebrating tomorrow’s pro-marijuana holiday with eating contests, live music and more giveaways than you can shake a pack of rolling papers at.

Pot people everywhere celebrate “420” tomorrow, an informal holiday observed annually on April 20. The origins of the holiday tend to vary depending on the age of the person asked and the potency of what they've been smoking, but tomorrow is unofficial marijuana day, and a lot of people will be getting really high around 4:20 p.m.

The Cheba Hut opens at 10 a.m. tomorrow, but owner Steve Bigelow says the live music (six bands!) and other festivities won’t get hopping until 2 p.m. The Tucson chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws has also chosen the restaurant as the end point for its marijuana march, which starts at 3 p.m. on the corner of Broadway Boulevard and Plumer Avenue.

A sandwich-eating contest is scheduled to take place at about 4:20 p.m., said Bigelow. A contest to see who can eat the most “goo-ball,” a mixture of Rice Krispies, peanut butter, honey and chocolate, will also be held. Bigelow said there’ll also be tons of free food, commemorative Frisbees, plastic pot-leaf necklaces, giveaways and a dunk tank where he and employees will make appearances.

Admission is free. Call 624-2880 for more information.
