Everyone knows my name at the cannabis lounge

Remember that old TV sitcom called Cheers? The theme song was about going to a place where “everyone knows your name.” The idea of a friendly neighborhood bar where everyone knew one another was fun but antiquated.

I have never been anywhere like the bar in Cheers, until recently.

But it’s not a bar, it’s a cannabis dispensary. Last year the place added a new feature – the back patio was converted into a smokers lounge, where the customers could just hang out. Slowly this place became a regular hang-out spot for the cannabis customers, and now it’s a place where “everyone knows my name.” One of the smartest things they did was to build a small stage in the back corner of the cannabis smokers lounge. It’s not big enough for a band, but a single person can stand there and perform, either by playing music or telling jokes. Hosting an Open Mic Night at the cannabis lounge was a great way to encourage new people to come in and see what the shop had to offer. Some nights it was so popular the cannabis lounge overflowed out into the parking lot! I have made a lot of great friends at the cannabis lounge, and although we don’t hang out at home we see each other several times a week at the dispensary. As much as I enjoy hanging out at the cannabis lounge, I have never signed up for Open Mic Night. I can’t sing and I’m not funny, I just like smoking marijuana with all of my new friends.
