A pop-up on the rise, HunnyMilk will hold the inaugural Wake and Bake multi-course marijuana brunch on March 26 at 5222 NE Sacramento St., and tickets go on sale today. HunnyMilk owner Brandon Weeks tells Eater the legalities of a marijuana event are complicated, but Wake and Bake has navigated them successfully. If the brunch goes well, he hopes to continue Wake and Bake monthly.
So what exactly will the weed brunch involve, and equally important, how will you keep from becoming a drooling mass of paranoia? Wake and Bake will keep things chill with a pajama contest, cannabis-inspired coloring sheets and crayons, and classic cartoons on a projector screen.
The food at the multi-course brunch will itself be comforting: waffles dipped in vanilla bean honey butter, cronut (croissant-donut) sandwiches, buttermilk biscuits, and chocolate-peanut butter monkey bread, viz. stoner food prepared by a chef with experience at Charlie Trotter's, Urban Farmer, and Renata.
As everyone knows, it's illegal to smoke marijuana in any public placeâincluding inside restaurants
As everyone knows, it's illegal to smoke marijuana in any public place—including inside restaurants—so HunnyMilk is teaming up with High 5 Tours, a company with a party bus that offers marijuana tours. The bus will be stationed outside the venue and will serve as a completely separate, private smoking area.
OLCC regulations stipulate marijuana and alcohol cannot be present at the same event, so brunch will be dry. Tickets are only available through HunnyMilk's website. Wake and Bake is a 21+ event and there will be seatings at 9 a.m. and noon. Each seating will welcome 24 guests and last two-and-a-half hours.
For Portland's first-ever marijuana brunch, HunnyMilk is partnering with Pure Green, a nearby dispensary, as well as six local cannabis growers: Eco Firma Farms, Portland Premium, Ten Four Farms, Nelson & Company Organics, Luvli, and Campfire Cannabis.
