Curated Cannabis Dining Events

Herbal Notes Hosts a Culinary Cannabis Speakeasy Event Series

— August 26, 2019 — Lifestyle
Herbal Notes hosts a series of Culinary Cannabis Speakeasy events that are centered around "helping people understand mental, physical and spiritual wellness through food and music." The company is based in Chicago and aims to connect like-minded foodies while spotlighting an artisan and curated menu inside a sensory space.

Ranging from $100 for a seven-course dinner to $150 for a dinner with beverage pairings, each event spotlights meals created by founder Chef Manny Mendoza and is hosted inside an exclusive, secret location. In addition to spotlighting the versatility of cannabis as a culinary ingredient, each dinner is also 420-friendly and invites guests to bring their own cannabis on-site.

As cannabis becomes legal across more American states, the stigma that was associated with the herb in the past is steadily fading. Events like this one by Herbal Notes elevate traditional dining rituals and spotlight the healing and wellness benefits of cannabis.
