Today is 420 Day, the annual celebration of all things weed and stoner culture.
You might think every day is a good day to get lit, but pull on a clean pair of sweats and grab some takeout from one of your favorite Miami restaurants to make today extra-special.
Eating House is probably the first restaurant that comes to mind when you think of a 420 Day celebration. Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli is offering a special takeout version of his annual stoner menu. This time, he has cooked up a selection of dishes named for various weed strains.
Other restaurants have joined the fun by creating special tacos, CBD-infused coffee drinks, and cookies for all you cool cats and kittens. All items are available for takeout and delivery today, April 20, unless otherwise noted.
