No 4/20 is complete without the “Munchies” Picnik
Written By Daniel Haynes
With just under a day to go to 4/20, it’s about time for the annual, single-day, outdoor picnic-to the Houston market that is Munchies Picnik. Originally founded by Curren$y, one of the underground’s greatest to bring smoke culture to the mainstream alongside rapper Wiz Khalifa, the event has been a hotspot for some of Houston’s most sought after rappers, musicians and influencers. This year, the event will be at the Ballroom At Warehouse Live on 813 St Emanuel Street in downtown Houston, Texas.
This year, the PICNIK boasts an abundance of artists ranging from the smoke infused flows of Curren$y, the hungry but smooth verses of J.I.D, Dice Soho and abstract vibes that are provided by Billy Racxx all the way to the group that could be considered the Chopped and Screwed kings in OG Ron C and the Chopstars. However, the music is not limited to the genres of hip hop and trap, but will feature the airy sounds of neo-soul as well as the fist pumping, head shaking sounds of EDM. After all it is 4/20 and what better way to enjoy the energy of the day than with good vybes?
The Box Office is scheduled to be open at 12 pm while at 4pm doors open and just one hour later at 5pm the show starts. If you’re reading this it’s not late and tickets are still on sale at MunchiesPicnik.com, 365LiveEntertainment.com, Warehouse Live Box Office, or Vendor and Retail Partner Outlets. Of course on 4/20 having food is a must and with a name like Munchies there’s gotta be some food to eat. According to the event planners “There will be an eclectic variety of local food trucks and merch vendors on-site for your eating and drinking pleasure.” With Kurbside Eatz, Casian King, The Burger Joint and The Flaming Fajita, you really can’t go wrong!
All in all, when the dust settles and the smoke clears, when you’re asked what did you do for 4/20? The correct answer would be partying with the positive vybes at Munchies Picnik, where unique style brings the 4/20 counterculture to the mainstream. Visit their site for more information here
