Summer nights and laughs with a side of gourmet cooking are being served up in this week's Cannabis Calendar. Attend a pot-infused comedy show at various venues around town, check out one of several weekly 4/20-friendly classes, or grub down at a watch party as a Colorado cannabis chef takes on Bobby Flay.

Beat Bobby Flay Watch Party
Thursday, August 4, 6 to 10 p.m.
JAD's Mile High Smoke
7667 Washington Street

Colorado cannabis chef Jarod "Roilty" Farina has a chance to take on one of America's most famous chefs on a popular Food Network show — but first he must beat another contending chef to get there, and Farina can't use any cannabis in his cooking. Will he make the cut? Find out at Colorado's only licensed cannabis bar, where Farina will host a watch party and serve up food. Entrance (21+) is free, while $85 tickets for the VIP experience include appetizers, a meal cooked by Farina and a gift bag. Find out more on Eventbrite.
