With Washington’s legalization of marijuana comes the natural convergence of stoners and stoner food. Seattle’s most centrally located legal pot shop, Uncle Ike’s at 23rd and Union, has logically paired those two things, with help from some local food trucks.
Even better, this business is making savvy use of the lot space between the pot shop and glass goods store by building a roomy outdoor 40-by-20 foot deck for bong-toting shoppers grabbing a bite to eat. Uncle Ike’s plans to build this patio behind the glass shop as additional seating for those eating at the onsite food truck du jour.
Uncle Ike’s owner, Ian Eisenberg says the deck will be open for summer. And while there’s no boozing (or toking for that matter), there will be an almost daily rotation of mobile eateries—trucks like Plum Burgers and The Grilled Cheese Experience have actually been serving up edibles here for the past few months. Check Uncle Ike’s website for the daily food truck schedule.
To be clear, these edibles aren’t the high-inducing kind. Though Cupcake Royale’s Jody Hall has created a side project, The Goodship Company, dedicated to the special baked goods, as Capitol Hill Blog reports. Uncle Ike’s has these available as well.
