No booze, all buzz: How restaurant in dry town of Collingswood is celebrating 4/20 with Munchie Madness dinner

Chef Michael DeLone of Nunzio is teaming with Mercantile 1888 Zero Proof Bar for unique event

What can a restaurant do on a special occasion when it’s located in a dry town? Get creative with cannabis. Chef Michael DeLone of Nunzio is teaming with Mercantile 1888 Zero Proof Bar for a most unique event on 4/20, April 20.

The “No Booze, All Buzz 4/20 Munchie Madness Pairing Dinner,” a CBD & THC cannabis-inspired dinner and tutorial, will be held at 6 p.m. for $120 per person.

The dinner will include four courses paired with cannabinoid-infused beverages and celebrate the spirit of 4/20 and the wonders of cannabis culture.

With a total THC dose of 4.5 mg per guest (below the legal microdose) and 15 mg CBD, the organizers say the 4/20 Munchie Madness dinner is the perfect opportunity to learn about or explore the lighter side of cannabis in a delicious, yet responsible, environment.

The 4/20 Munchie Madness menu includes:

  • Hamunchie Crudo: Hamachi Strawberry, jalapeño, cucumber & balsamic.
    • Paired with Lime Cannabis Spritz, 2.5 mg THC made with Cali Sober Ranch Water.
  • Loaded Potato Gnocchi: Cheddar, guanciale, sour cream, green onion, fried potato skins.
    • Paired with the Mellow Mike, 10 mg CBD made with Flyers Bklyn Gold.
  • Italian Chicken & Waffles: Fried chicken, tomato waffle, sun dried tomato, charred spring onion & honey.
    • Paired with Weed Wooder, 1 mg THC made with Mighty Kind Watermelon D9 Cannabis Seltzer.
  • Up in Smoke S’more: Chocolate brownie, burnt marshmallow, chocolate custard, graham cracker.
    • Paired with Elevated Espresso Martini, 1 mg THC & 5 mg CBD made with Endo Medium Dank Roast Nitro Cold Brew.

“We had so much fun creating this dinner and are thrilled to partner with Mercantile 1888 Zero Proof Bar for this distinctive event bringing collaborative creativity to the area,” Chef Michael DeLone said. “Showcasing our restaurant in a dry town poses obvious challenges, even with a solid mocktail program and BYOB culture. But, by teaming up with a local gem like Mercantile 1888, we’re shining a light on the innovative spirit of Collingswood and inviting new guests to experience new things.”
