What Do Weed, Nails, Art, And Feminine Hygiene Products Have In Common?


If you hate weed, you’re gonna hate the future. I am fortunate enough to live in one of the first recreational states of America, in one of the most open minded cities, Seattle. We still have our problems but at least my weed isn’t used against me in a court of law.

The other day after exchanging a broken rig at Uncle Ike’s I stopped for a beer at the bar adjacent to the recreational store. On my way out I grabbed a local zine called Top Tree, in it was an awesome article about an upcoming event on November 10th in conjunction with Seattle’s Capitol Hill Art Walk from 5 pm to 9 pm.

The event is called Dexterity, a high-art salon event with the purpose of raising awareness around one of the many conditions homeless women face, feminine hygiene. Instead of a cover charge guests are asked to bring a feminine hygiene product donations that will go to “All Cycles Outreach Project”. Products that we take for granted in our western culture come at a price which is too much for those that have no income.

Dexterity is brought to you by Top Coat Seattle and Women.Weed.WIFI, both organizations are women based with goals to empower women but to also include their male counterparts along the journey. This event will have live DJ Sets and nail stations where you can get your nails done but my favorite part is in their about section of the event “We gave some our favorite artists a blank nail wheel, a hand-rolled joint and asked them to create. don’t miss this female-powered party.”

Besides the art and vibes, Seattle’s up and coming podcasters Hella Black, Hella Seattle will have a booth there. I don’t plan on getting my nails done but I do plan on stopping by and showing my support for a good cause and to a group of like minded individuals, I hope you can to.
