This Chicago burger joint made no pretense about why they were closed for 4/20.

DOING THE DRUGS



He is resin.

Kuma's Corner is a restaurant that serves huge, dripping, mind-bendingly delicious burgers in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago. When you walk into the establishment and sit down to eat, you are treated to aural cacophony of loud, thrashing heavy metal music. Their burgers have names like the Black Sabbath, the Iron Maiden, the Lair of the Minotaur and (my personal favorite) the Plague Bringer. They somehow managed to snag a location at 666 W. Diversey Parkway for their sister restaurant and made certain to proudly feature its address number.

So, when given the choice between acknowledging Easter or National Weed Day when they remained closed yesterday, it's maybe not a huge surprise which one the restuarant owners chose. Though, I feel like they could have made an equally compelling case for honoring Ä’ostre, the pagan goddess of the dawn, without losing any street cred.

I think companies like this will keep the young crown coming, so it don't matter what his reasons are for closing. He is obviously promoting to a certain kind of crowd by naming the burgers what he does, and playing the music he does. So to each there own. i listen to loud rock, alternative, heavy metal and would definately check this place out...Don't promote the drug usage, but hey it's getting legalized anyways. So how bad can it really be...medical use or not.

I'm sure their employees were stoked to have the day free to celebrate the holiday properly.

I went to a couple of parties on Saturday from businesses who wanted to celebrate 4/20 early because of Easter. A couple of those were full on parties with people cooking out, cupcakes, beer and likely extra for those willing to explore the grounds for the special Easter eggs (wink wink). Chances are there was a pig in the ground as well as a a full bar and game room hidden in there but I was in a hurry that day.
I wasn't expecting the parties but apparently that's the kind of clientele I'm still considered. Oh well, I love cupcakes.
