On the night of March 29, 2018, the world was lifted from the ground and placed gently amongst an array of smoke, lasers and the smooth electronic stylings of Paper Diamond. 

It was Rooster Magazine's first annual Kickoff to April party, a massive gathering of Colorado's top cannabis industry professionals vying for a chance to say they're the best at what they do.

This year, select judges toiled through over 250 submissions over 16 categories in the state's only blind judging contest — The THC Classic. It all culminated into one massive, sold out soirée at Denver's Temple Nightclub. 

It's how we do.

Oh, and a very special thank you goes out to all our sponsors of the event: INDVRHigh Level Health Award Winning CannabisMile High PipePhil Lewis ArtTrimcoLit BrandingLucy Sky Cannabis BoutiqueDipstick VapesPure PressureEvolve FormulasHarmony ExtractsKeef ColaCannabis Tours and Duby.
