Joke all you want about high times in Colorado, but with the legalization of marijuana, cannabis culture is here to stay. And the mack daddy of weed celebrations is right around the corner on 4/20. If you happen to weasel your way out of the Easter festivities long enough to smoke a bowl, here are your go-to spots to curb those munchies. Whether you crave sweet, savory, or just massive portions, if you're high, they'll hit the spot. We know two things for sure, though, they're pretty darn delicious and you'd only find these in Denver.

The sexy little speakeasy below Colt and Gray may seem shiny and fancy, but a few menu highlights may tickle your taste buds - the duck poutine with green peppercorn gravy for one. Rich, salty, and greasy, this dish is served until 1:30 a.m.

2. Voodoo Doughnut Mile High

Officially open 24/7 now; VooDoo Doughnut still commands lines around the block all hours of the night. Coated in kiddie cereals, candy, and other weird toppings, that iconic pink box is the perfect snack while smoking. Grab a Maple Blazer Blunt doughnut in celebration and pass the pipe.

Known for mixing flavor profiles and unique fusions, the Korean BBQ Burger at Tom’s Urban hits all the right notes from sweet to spicy. Dressed with Korean BBQ sauce, cucumber, Asian peanut slaw, Sriracha, mayo, and sweet garlic chili sauce, it is as delectable as it sounds.

One of Denver’s signature desserts, Marco’s Nutella pizza always hits the spot. With an ooey gooey stuffed crust smothered in hazelnut goodness, drizzled with powdered sugar, cinnamon, and topped with either fresh bananas or strawberries, there’s only one way to get your mouth to stop watering.

Feeling extra gluttonous? Or just starving? If all else fails, a Man vs. Food Challenge should curb your appetite. Home of the 7 lb. breakfast burrito that includes 5 lbs. of grilled potatoes, 12 eggs, 1/2 lb. of ham, 1/2 lb. of cheese, onions, and your choice of chili, you may need to sit down for this one. Heart attack not included.

Denver, CO 80203
(303) 831-6443

If you’re into breakfast for dinner, the Savory Waffle at City O' City is worth writing home about. The dish is topped with either a seasonal vegetable ragù and Taleggio or a vegan cheese fondue. Why wouldn’t you want to slather cheese on your meal?

7. SUGARBAKESHOP

(720) 458-5432
Visit Website

8. TAG Burger Bar

1222 Madison St
Denver, CO 80206
(303) 736-2260

The entire menu at Tag Burger Bar would satisfy a stoner’s appetite, but the Cheez-It and Goldfish Mac and Cheese is a good place to start, washed down with some Deep Fried Oreos for dessert.

(303) 830-1001
