WICKER PARK, THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 7:00P. A night of weed discussion, education, celebration and intrigue. The night will start off with author Ryan Nerz signing copies of his new book, MARIJUANAMERICA: One Man’s Quest to Understand America’s Dysfunc
Lagunitas Brewing Co, famous for their marijuana-related, um, “situations”, will have piney beers on tap, and there will be stoner-themed specials from Jerry’s. There will also be live painting, and a whole lot more (tba) will be added to this fun and educational extravaganza.
Ryan Nerz is a freelance journalist whose work has appeared in/on Esquire, the Village Voice, NPR, Spike TV, the Biography Channel, and The Daily Show. He is currently based in Brooklyn, NY, and we are excited to have him in Chicago to share his research, humor and life experiences.
The evening will then segue into music with Dirty MF (of Grammy-nominated Liquid Soul), celebrating the Release of his new mix-tape, “Kush Groove”. Dirty MF, a legend in Chicago’s hip-hop scene, is an avid marijuana smoker and discusses this love often in his lyrics. This night also happens to be the MC’s birthday and will feature a listening of the new mix-tape and live performance with his band, the Smokin’ Sextion.
