CAFE Puff & Paint Nights are really starting to get popular! CAFE hosts this exciting event in collaboration with talented Toronto artist Ashante, who wows attendees every time with her incredible artistic works and unique ideas for our classes. Once again, our Puff & Paint Night was fully sold out days in advance, with many more people excitedly contacting us for details on the next event.
CAFE is proud to be the original, and one of the only spots in Toronto where people can freely enjoy cannabis as part of their evening. Cannabis-centric tourism and entertainment events are indeed starting to become more popular as more and more people start to explore cannabis as an alternative to alcohol. We are happy to be pioneers of this change in Toronto, and will continue to host exciting, cannabis-focused activities and events for our patrons.
Our Puff & Paint Night took place at a cozy, private venue in the heart of Toronto’s Corso Italia neighbourhood, and just steps away from our 1321 St. Clair W CAFE dispensary location. The night usually begins at 7pm, though many guests arrive early, excited for a unique night of fun and entertainment. Seats were prepared at long tables equipped with individual easels, canvases, art supplies and of course – premium cannabis pre-rolls from CAFE. Contemporary music played softly while guests took their seats, squeezed out some paints, and paid attention as our host Ashante gave them a run down on what to expect.
We love having Ashante host our paint nights. Not only is she a very talented artist, she is also extremely patient and attentive to the guests attending her session. Throughout the evening, Ashante would hold up her own work and explain or provide tips on how to achieve specific artistic techniques. She then went around the room, checking on each person’s progress and helping them achieve the results they were looking for. Amazingly, Ashante managed to paint her entire piece while holding the canvas in one hand, and standing or walking around the room!
Our Puff and Paint Nights wouldn’t be complete without our favourite flower – in the form of our premium CAFE house rolls! Each attendee was given their own 0.8g house roll, to help them get into the right state of mind for a cannabis themed art adventure, which they did with pleasure. The fragrant and very welcome scent of weed filled the air as guests chatted with each other, enjoyed the music and snacks provided, and embarked upon their own individual artistic journey within the class.
Puff and Paint Nights are a great experience for all who attend. Whether guests are artistically inclined or not, we find that everyone tends to have a great time, and are able to create wonderful works of art with the step-by-step guidance provided by Ashante. We love that cannabis is a part of this experience, since it is known to help inspire creativity and help people in their artistic endeavours.
The assignment for this event was an abstract design of smileys, with our own favourite dispensary name right in the middle. Of course, we loved it – and so did our loyal patrons! Everyone had a lot of fun designing their own piece in their own style.
Once done, guests posed for a group picture with their pieces and then went home as the night ended, taking care to ensure their paintings were dry and ready to go! We had an excellent time as always, and are so thankful to all of our attendees, and our artist Ashante. We’re so glad you came, and we can’t wait for the next one!
