This weekend, Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas across the country, temporarily renamed Alamo Dankhouse, are mixing Chex cereal, cheese balls, and ranch seasoning with buttered popcorn. This unique snack is the first of three courses in a special menu that will be served during screenings of stoner classics like “Inherent Vice” and “The Beach Bum.”

Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, a chain with locations stretching from San Francisco to Houston, will be selling a sandwich called the THC for $14.20 this month and next. Rewards members get a $4.20 discount on this special sandwich.

Origin of April 20 as a Food Holiday

The celebration of weed observed each year on April 20 is not a legal or a religious holiday. However, with restaurants across the country offering special meals this weekend inspired by cannabis culture generally and the number 420 specifically, April 20 is looking more and more like a national food holiday.

One side effect of cannabis use is slower reaction time. So maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that April 20 bopped around in the culture for decades before picking up a tradition of eating and drinking. It began as a private code shared by high school stoners in the early 1970s, spread to Deadheads and readers of High Times magazine in the ’90s, and was taken up at music festivals, outdoor film screenings, and other places where attendants would light up.
