VdP VOICEOdessa Parker

Are you in the Emerald City tomorrow? If you're looking to get lifted and party, here's what's happening:

Take in comedy c/o The Gateway Show (left), a set by Lisa Prank at Hashtag's Block Party (middle; photo by Kelly O), and a drag show hosted by Cucci Binaca (right).

Seattle Hashtag 4/20 Block Party

Down the street from posh pot shop Hashtag, Stone Way Cafe hosts an evening block party featuring a live music set from Lisa Prank, plus a Cannabus parked out front for a place to imbibe. The cafe will also have plenty of snacks, drinks, and coffee to keep the party going from 7:00 to 11:00 (3510 Stone Way N).

Jay and Silent Bob Get Old Live

Director Kevin Smith and actor Jason Mewes take their weekly podcast, Jay and Silent Bob Get Old, on the road with a live recording at the Neptune theater. Expect the duo’s usual irreverence, raunchy comedy, and all-around good time. Doors open at 7:30 (1303 NE 45th St).

The Gateway Show

Combine a comedy show with Drunk History (only with cannabis), and you’ll get the Gateway Show, a night of live standup where the comedians perform a sober set before getting really, unbelievably stoned. They come back to the stage to attempt a second round and whether or not the jokes are funny, the delivery is sure to be. The doors open at 7:00, show starts at 8:00 (1625 Broadway).

Movies

If a few hours in the dark with popcorn and a big screen fits the bill for your 4/20, several Seattle venues are playing pot-friendly films. Catch Half Baked at Silver City Brewing from 7-11 (2501 Eastlake Ave E). The SIFF Cinema Egyptian celebrates the 40th anniversary of Cheech and Chong’s classic Up in Smoke at 9:30 (801 E Pine St). Something more heady? The Northwest Film Forum is showing A Scanner Darkly as part of their Puget Soundtrack series which pairs live music with the movie — this time, the funk jazz stylings of Afrocop at 8:00 (1515 12th Ave).
