Upcoming Events & Appearances 

Held the night before Good Friday, Really Good Thursday is a celebration of fine art and cannabis for like minded Los Angeles influencers and enthusiasts. Not long ago, cannabis was crucified, but Mary Jane has risen again with the end of prohibition for California. While our brand new legal market has many kinks to work out, we believe there is much to be celebrated.
Hosted at Hitman Gallery by Califari, Dion Loren and Elise McRoberts, Really Good Thursday celebrates the Art of Cannabis in all its forms within a synergistic art show. From curated cannabis to engaging and participatory activities, the evening will showcase the Award Winning Cannabis Strain Art Series from Califari alongside the infamous glass collection housed at Hitman Coffeeshop & Gallery.
Centrally located in Los Angeles, Hitman Coffeeshop & Gallery is a private workspace (members only) and art gallery that allows for personal cannabis consumption. With capacity for 300 people, we’ll host industry insiders, influencers, tastemakers and movers n shakers. A limited amount of tickets may be released to public for advance sale. Take in the art while mingling, create your own art at the hosted painting station or find your groove on the dance floor. We’ll have DJ’s spinning & dropping funky beats, so come ready to party and expect surprises. Keeping with the art opening vibe, there will be a hosted bar offering red and white wine alongside complimentary appetizers.
