A$AP Rocky's Purple Christmas at Grand Central December 29

Welcome to the tip of the Florida peninsula, otherwise known as the land of Purple Christmas.

Now if you've never celebrated the holidays in Miami, here's the deal: We don't decorate trees. We cut 'em down and smoke 'em. And this year, the fine folks at local nightlife company WRLD are spreading the joy of the stoned season by hosting a full night of festivities at Grand Central.

Swag rapper and professional pothead A$AP Rocky (AKA Rakim Mayers) will be master of ceremonies. He's gonna be sparkin' spliffs, spittin' riffs, and smokin' out the joint alongside fellow weed fans Lunden and Gabe Fields. Seasonal sounds will ring loud and it's gonna smell like Christmas — i.e., ripe, deeply kush, and somewhat piney.


A$AP Rocky's Purple Christmas

With Lunden and special guest Gabe Fields. 10 p.m. Thursday, December 29, at Grand Central, 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; grandcentralmiami.com. Tickets cost $15 to $30 via ticketweb.com. Ages 18 and up.

Try sharing your hash stash and Rocky might even teach you all about the trichromatic traditions of Purp X-Mas, including how to properly pick out a purp tree, the appropriate time to harvest those resin-coated buds, and the right method for rolling a big, fat yule blunt, plus tips on achieving that perfect holiday-head high.

'Tis the season to be tokin'. And just like A$AP Rocky says, "Everything is purple."
