Mason Jar Events Coming Right Up

Aug 29, 2017 03:44PM ● By Leland Rucker

A couple of months ago I was eating dinner with several people I had never met before. The sun was setting, and we were all at tables just outside an old barn above a lovely valley in Boulder County east of the foothills. There was a band picking bluegrass, and, sitting amongst new friends, there was a moment that I felt like it could just as easily be 1867 as 2017, with everyone laughing, singing and enjoying a community feast together under the stars.

It’s that sense of complete relaxation, camaraderie and contentment at the Mason Jar events I’ve attended that stays with me. These high-class events offer a way out of the ordinary, a chance to slowly unwind, forget about current events and meet new friends in a truly wondrous setting. Founder Kendall Norris and her partners have perfected the art of fine dining in the new normal.

These aren’t dinners which serve food infused with cannabis. Rather, the chef chooses strains to go with different courses, and at this one there was a dab bar alongside cocktails and appetizers, that allowed those of us new to that method of ingestion to learn more about the process. Mason Jar provides buses to and from all events, so nobody is imbibing and driving.

Last Sunday morning Mason Jar hosted a Yoga with a View event, with instructor Larissa Ortiz leading a meditation and vinyasa-styled class alongside a yummy brunch with special cannabis pairings.

The next one, Hemp & Seed, is Thursday night, Aug. 31, at a farm in the hemp fields near Ft. Collins, and features acoustic music from the Good Kind, cuisine prepared by Chef Melissa Harrison of Seasonal Montana, paired with select Organic Alternatives cannabis strains. And just to remind us that summer is waning, the Fall Seasonal Pairing will be held Oct. 5, just five weeks from now, at a farm near Lyons, CO. Full information about coming events and tickets at
