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 read more

Tabcorp shareholders dispute executive merger rewards

first_imgShare Submit Share The governance of Australia ASX-listed Tabcorp Holdings has been served a bloody nose, as a significant number of its investors have rejected the firm’s executive remuneration report.This Wednesday, 40% of Tabcorp investors voted against 2017/18 executive packages.Australian business news sources report that investors had been incensed by the company attaching executive performance rewards (bonuses) to Tabcorp’s AUS $11 billion merger with main market rival Tatts Group.The vote sees Tabcorp governance served its first strike under ASX rules. Tabcorp will move to restructure its executive remuneration provisions, seeking to avoid a 25% rejection vote at next year’s AGM, which will force a board spill.Tabcorp Chairman Paula Dwyer acknowledged investor concerns that executive rewards should be conditional to the success of the Tatts merger.Nevertheless, Dwyer explained that the rewards were in recognition of ‘extraordinary efforts’ to complete a landmark and business changing transaction which took 14-months to complete.Continuing its merger integration with Tatts, Dwyer assured Tabcorp investors that executive remuneration policy would change to a ‘synergy-model which reflects the firm’s changed business entity.“The new performance measure will be based on the achievement of synergies and benefits from the combination at the end of FY21, and the vesting period will be extended from two years to three and a half years.” Related Articles Senet Australia appoints Paul Newsom as new client advisory lead  August 27, 2020 Tabcorp raises $371m through institutional entitlement offer August 24, 2020 StumbleUpon Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020last_img read more
