Dean Ween Proposes Weed-Friendly Music Venue In Denver

first_imgWeen guitarist Mickey Melchiondo, better known as Dean Ween, has his eyes set on opening a music venue in downtown Denver, where patrons will be allowed and encouraged to use marijuana with no threat of security.According to the Denver Post, the proposed venue would be named Dean Ween’s Honeypot Lounge and would be located near Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies MLB baseball team. Dean Ween’s Honeypot Lounge would host music, comedy, and film-related events, with Dean Ween serving as the venue’s entertainment director. The proposed music venue would be among the first businesses of its kind in the U.S. During the day, the venue would also operate as a marijuana consumption site with educational and wellness programs.Chief operating officer Michael Polansky notes, “I think cannabis and music make total, total sense together. We think that we can offer a unique kind of musical experience for Denver and the world. We hope to open the Honeypot’s doors by April 20, the stoner holiday!”The Denver Post adds, that although the organizers have not yet applied for city licenses that would allow the public consumption of marijuana on the property, they plan to apply within the upcoming weeks for the proper license and permits. A specific location has still not been decided or determined for Dean Ween’s Honeypot Lounge.Next up for Deaner is a three-show run in December, as Ween will play a show at Philadelphia, PA’s The MET on December 14th, followed by a two-night run at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre on December 15th and 16th. As of now, the only other thing on Dean Wean’s calendar is a collaborative New Year’s Eve celebration with Dumpstaphunk, at Denver’s Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom on December 31st.For more information on ticketing and Dean Ween’s upcoming shows, head to Ween’s website here, or Deaner’s personal website here.[H/T Denver Post]last_img
