Hey everybody, it's National Marijuana Day, right? Or something like that. In any case, it's April 20th and it's Monday, two prime excuses to snack like a hungry teen. Here are three ways to chow down.
MUNCHIE CONE — You would expect a restaurant with the name Cheese and Crack Snack Shop to be an expert in all things munchie. And, judging by this delectable ice cream mash-up, it is. In celebration of #420 it's offering this amazing Munchie Cone today only.

PDXiCALI — Fenrir, which is usually closed on Monday nights, is opening its doors for PDXiCALi, a Mexican-ish pop-up party tonight only. The short, snacky menu includes chorizo tacos and carnitas tacos ($2.50), nachos built on housemade chicharrones instead of tortilla chips ($6), and housemade Choco Tacos (!!). To drink: tequila, margaritas, Pacifico and Mexican Coke, plus something called Orange Bam!
POUTINE — Today, Poutine for the People kicks off a week of gravy-and-cheese-drenched French fry goodness. The creation of chef AJ Voytko of The Original, it's a chance to take a poutine crawl through participating Portland restaurants from now through April 25. Proceeds benefit the Providence Cancer Center. Restaurants include: Laurelhurst Market (house cut French fries, gravy, crispy pork shoulder, mozzarella curd, English peas), Radio Room (French fries, roasted green chiles, sausage gravy, crispy pig ear, housemade mozzarella, soft poached egg), Smokehouse Tavern (fries, Beechers cheese curds, pulled pork and smoked pork gravy), The Original (French fries, curds, braised spare rib, brown gravy), as well as Hopworks Urban Brewery on SE Powell, Potato Champion, and Tabor Tavern.
