Meet Old Hippie On 4/20

I will be tripping through the Bay Area on Saturday for the nearest thing our culture has to a true “high holiday”…4/20!

At around noon, I’ll be at the psychedelic flea market being held at the Oakland Marriott Civic Center in downtown Oakland. It’s part of a serious but cool MAPS conference, and admission to the marketplace is free (I don’t think they’re selling drugs though).

At about 3 PM, I’ll be at Hippie Hill, the only sane destination for 4/20 if you don’t happen to be in either Denver or Seattle, where some really insane stuff will be hopefully happening (I’m talking about good, clean fun insane stuff). When I get settled, I plan to tweet my exact location. By 4:20 fo sho! But just look for someone approximately dressed like this:

I’m hoping to bring Felicity too! Anyway, nugs and hugs and I’d love to meet you if you’re in the area!

    I really wish I could meet you, but it’s a little far from Ohio. Have fun, be safe.

    Hugs and Nugs right back to you!

    OH: Are you familiar with Discordianism at all? If not check it out, it’s a peachy keen “religion” and 4/20 is our equivalent to Christmas. Save Your Seeds. Hail Eris!

      I looked this up on Wikipedia and found this gem:

      …the Principia Discordia notes a debate over whether the “gold” described was “metallic gold or Acapulco.”

      Nugs and hugs!
