I’ve said many times before that Puffcon is one of my favorite events in this scene – it’s like a family reunion – and thankfully this year’s event was no different. If anything, it was better.
Opening to the public for the first time – that is, to people who don’t already own a Puffco product, it was the heaviest hitting lineup yet, and admittedly the busiest of the events they’ve had so far. Collectively it felt like they finally maximized the potential of the downtown footprint they’ve called home the past three years – even adding a new area for food vendors, and more actual hash brands on the floor. There was little left to be desired.
Personally, I didn’t see anything but people having fun with their friends, enjoying great music and hash, at a great event.
Speaking of which, lemme throw out some shoutouts real quick to those not mentioned below. As always, it was excellent to see the homies All My Hats Are Dead, Trapis Designs, and Earth Trade Center down in LA. The homies Trichadelics, Guru, Kalya, Wooksauce, and the Terp Hogz all had booths vending their latest and greatest, and both Liquid Death and Jones Soda were giving product away adjacent to cool vehicles. It was a fun time. Finally, I can’t forget the Puffco crew – thank you Roger, Kevin, and the entire squad once again for all you did to make the event special.
Below are my event-specific highlights, but feel free to let me know yours – or what needs to be on the next one of these – over on (what will forever be known as) Twitter.
