first_imgWith Thanksgiving around the corner, The Dankquet might just be the newest thing that Coloradans have to be thankful for. But next time, we’ll need a bigger guest list! To stay up to date with future events from the guys at LOOPR follow them on Instagram and Facebook and check out their daily Bud Crawls on their cannabis friendly party bus on LOOPR’s website. It’s no secret that living in Colorado comes with an impressively long list of benefits: you have Red Rocks in your backyard, one of the most incredible live music scenes in the country, wintertime in the mountains, and (of course) legal cannabis just about everywhere you look. With all the things that the Mile High City already has going for it, maybe it’s not too surprising that every so often, an idea jumps out that makes you pause and go “YES”. Well, it looks like the guys at LOOPR got it down pretty perfectly with “The Dankquet”—the answer to the timeless question of what would happen if you put a bunch of our favorite musicians, a Top Chef winner, a neuroscientist, and a handful of our friends together for a cannabis-infused feast? The answer, of course, is one damn incredible evening.Lettuce Announces 2018 Headlining TourLettuce Reinterprets Miles Davis In New Live Album “Witches Stew”The first ever installment of The Dankquet features L4LM favorites Adam Deitch and Erick “Jesus” Coomes from Lettuce and Corey Frye from The Main Squeeze alongside Top Chef winner Hosea Rosenberg and some of the leading minds in the cannabis industry. As guests worked their way through a variety of infused courses like the “Lettuce Turnip The Beet” salad, escargot with arugula pesto, applewood smoked ahi, Chilean sea bass with Thai citrus dope sauce, and caramel chocolate s’mores, the group talked about everything from the importance of proper dosing when it comes to edibles to how they find inspiration in their craft through cannabis. Check out the recap video below and excuse us while we daydream for a minute…last_img read more

NBA playoffs 2019: Kevin Durant trying not to get into back and forth with Patrick Beverley

first_img“If I put the basketball on the floor, I can probably make 43 percent of my shots if I’m shooting like that, but that’s not really going to do nothing for us with the outcome of the game because we’ve got a nice flow, everybody touching the rock, everybody shooting and scoring, so I’m not going to get in the way of the game because I want to have a little back and forth with Patrick Beverley, I’m Kevin Durant, you know who I am.”Kevin Durant goes extremely in depth on the Clippers style of defense, the overhelp, why he won’t get caught up in a 1-on-1 battle with Patrick Beverley pic.twitter.com/nOdmTDY4yi— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) April 17, 2019Durant has been caught up somewhat with Beverley as both players were ejected in Game 1 after multiple technical fouls. The Warriors forward then fouled out of Game 2 after he tallied several offensive fouls, including one against the Clippers guard.But Golden State has averaged 126 points over the first two games of the series, and had Durant not fouled out in Game 2, the Clippers may have never come back at all. NBA playoffs 2019: Warriors’ Steve Kerr says Kevin Durant ‘absolutely needs to be more aggressive’ Kevin Durant doesn’t want to get caught up in beating Patrick Beverley.He wants to make sure he helps the Warriors keep their offensive flow despite the constant double-teams and help situations he keeps facing on the offensive end. “They playing a gimmick defense which has been working,” Durant told reporters Wednesday, via The Athletic. “Top blocking everything on the perimeter, so guys aren’t even looking at the 3-point line, they’re just forcing guys inside the 3-point line, so for us, when I get the ball in my spot I got a pest, Patrick Beverley, who was up underneath me.”I could definitely shoot over the top and score every time if it’s a one-on-one situation, but we’ve got a guy who’s dropping and helping and we’ve got another guy that’s just sitting on me waiting for me to dribble the basketball. Related News And going into Game 3, that is more of Durant’s focus than anything: staying on the court as long as he can without racking up offensive fouls because he’s mixing it up with Beverley.”When a guy is that small you’ve got an advantage, but the refs see…you know, we hear David and Goliath growing up, so that story is pretty prominent in people’s minds, so when you put that out there on the court and it’s me then the refs are going to give him a little bit more,” Durant said. “So when he run up on me like a pitbull, grab me, hold me, I don’t mind it, that’s how he make his money, that’s how he feed his family, but if I throw something back then let us play, get what I’m saying? So I got four or five offensive fouls like that, I’m just trying to figure out each possession how I can be more effective without getting offensive fouls.”last_img read more
