Ready for some St. Patrick’s day fun?
This year is a lot different than others. Events that have taken place for decades are being cancelled for the first time, leaving us with less and less activities to participate in for St. Patrick’s Day.
Be sure to continuously check that the event you’re interested in is still going to take place. And if you attend, wash your hands and stay safe.
Whether you’re going to an event or not, we’ll still be here to help you get your green on another way. Stop by our Washington dispensary in Seattle-Fremont, Bellingham, or North Spokane for a green night in or a pick-me-up before your event starts. –
