Cooking in the Mile High City has always been done at an elevated level, but with recent changes in marijuana laws the culinary arts in Denver are higher than ever. Find out how high when author, baker and cannabis entrepreneur Karin Lazarus talks about her new book, Sweet Mary Jane: 75 Delicious Cannabis-Infused High-End Desserts, at the Boulder Bookstore at 7:30 p.m. today.

If cannabis cooking isn't your thing, maybe the new menu at Harman's will spark your interest. The restaurant is rolling out a special $20 menu today that pairs barbecue and a variety of bubbles. The third in a series of monthly three-plate tasting menus, the deal's available after 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday until July 31. The menu includes spiced lamb ribs, smoked carrots with crispy pig ear and pork belly pastrami with peach barbecue sauce — each paired with a sampler of sparkling wine. For more information or to make reservations, call Harman's at 303-388-7428.
