The result is a HIGHlarious evening of stoner entertainment, sure to have you singing, dancing, and laughing your ass off.
When and where does High Court take place?
High Court takes place on the third Saturday of the month at The Backdrop -- a cozy, outdoor music venue and coffee shop in Old Town, San Diego. Doors open at 7pm. From 7-8pm, guests are invited to decorate their own royal crowns, chill with friends, and enjoy coffee, tea, and coffee shop fare. The show begins promptly at 8pm.
What do you mean by “royal court”?
High Court combines the pomp and circumstance of an aristocratic royal court with the hilarity and absurdity of cannabis. Each show begins with a formal introduction of the Queen and the recitation of the Weestonia “Pledge of Indulgence.” Throughout the show, the Queen performs for her subjects and featured royal guests perform for Her Highness. Audience members are invited to receive their own royal titles, participate in the Weestonia National Games, and other fun, courtly activities.
What is Weestonia? And how do I find it on a map?
Weestonia is the weed capitol of the world, and a small, sovereign nation known for its rolling, lush fields of cannabis. If you get really, really stoned, you should be able to spot it on a map, just a wee bit higher than Estonia. Weestonia lore teaches us that a few years ago, the King and Queen puff-puff-passed-away in a mysterious accident, and the country nearly fell into the hands of the Knights of Temperance, a fringe militia that threatened to enforce a national code of sobriety! Luckily, a distant heir to the throne was found alive and tokin’ in San Diego, California. And after a DNA test proved her to be 99% THC, MC Flow was crowned the rightful, reigning Queen of Weestonia.
