***SOLD OUT *** SOLD OUT *** This Bus Tour is SOLD OUT***
Kick Ass Oregon History is pleased to announce another bus tour – this one examining the history of marijuana in Oregon. And we are quite proud to announce that the Cascadia Cruiser will be our chariot for the evening! April 20th, the international day of ganja smoking and celebration, will naturally be the date of the tour!
We will be beginning our evening at The Jack London Bar (underneath the the Rialto Poolroom) at 6:15pm. The Cascadia Cruiser will meet us there, and then ferry us about our fine city, visiting historic weed locations along the way. We will ALSO enjoy some complimentary adult malted beverages while on the bus – just to make sure everyone is in the chill mood, mane…
Highlights of this tour will include:
1) a visit to some serious hippie day locations. Fuckin’ Far Out, Man!
2) a free pint of dank micro-brew at Plew’s Brews in St. Johns – one of our event co-sponsors, at their 3rd Annual 420 Brewers Invitational! THIS is a Kick Ass Event, and YOU will have a front row seat!
3) Discussions about WHY weed is such a cultural phenomenon WHERE we live. Cause it is, man…
And a dime bag more of fun shit too!
All that for only $30 bucks! Less than an 8th! How do you get a ticket to this Kick Ass Tour? Just click right here, bro (and don’t fuckin’ call me bro…) *SOLD OUT*
YOU MUST BE 21! Bring an Oregon or other US STATE ID, or your Passport.
DO NOT DRIVE HOME! Take the bus, MAX, streetcar or a Radio cab. Have a sober friend drive you home. Do not drive!
If YOU make a mess on the bus, and we incur additional cleaning fees, YOU will be charged that full amount. By your purchase, you agree to this shit…
YOU MUST HAVE FUN! (ok – you don’t HAVE to have fun… but you should!)
NOTE: It has been asked that smoking (of any substance) is NOT an activity to be conducted on the bus. I request that you respect this request. Cause we don’t want to roll around town looking like this, do we???
