It's hard for a lot of people over the age of six to get excited for a drive around the neighborhood to check out Christmas lights. Believe it or not, some of us would rather just stay at home. But for those who have lost their holiday spirit, the Tacky Light Tour is happy to lift it up. Starting at a hosting dispensary, riders will get exclusive shopping deals before hopping on a pot-friendly party bus to ride around and see Denver's best light decorations. And did we mention a professional comedian will be joining you the whole time? 

Keep reading for more information on Tacky Lights and other pot shindigs in this week's Cannabis Calendar.

Just like a wine-tasting course, this hands-on class will teach students how to smell the differences among cannabis strains and detect unacceptable qualities in flower. Cost is $299. Licensed industry employees and groups of five or more should inquire about discounts. 21+

The Tacky Light Comedy Tour keeps moving this week, as it stops at Mindful, Terrapin Care Station on 33rd Avenue and Denver Relief during its holiday tour of dispensary shopping sprees and mobile comedy shows. Starting at Mindful on Thursday, December 10, shoppers will check out exclusive deals at the hosting pot shop before hopping on a 4/20-friendly party bus to cruise around the Denver area with a SexPot Comedy comedian. Sam Tallent will ride along Thursday, and tours beginning at Terrapin Care Station (Friday, December 11) and Denver Relief (Saturday, December 12) will feature Ben Kronberg. Tickets are $62.50 apiece and include a catered dinner at a local art gallery and alcoholic refreshments. 21+
