Hendrick’s Gin invites residents from East to West to participate in a curiously odd opportunity to voyage into the portal of peculiarity at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal this Summer.

Commencing on Monday, April 1 (a day traditionally dedicated to absurdity), the Hendrick’s Gin National Contest gives eligible Canadian residents a chance to soar the skies (with a trip for two) to the glorious city of Montreal, Quebec, partaking in festivities on both Thursday, June 27th and Friday, June 28th, 2019.   

Hendrick’s Gin will offer curious contest winners (for the first time ever), a chance to time travel the country to redeem their pair of golden tickets for a special voyage on the famously adorned and adored E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M.  The 65-foot Elevating, Levitating, Exceptionally, Voluminous, Amazingly, Towering, Uplifting, Mobile will soar 44 ¼ cucumbers in downtown Montreal, offering contest winners a view often reserved only for our flock of feathered friends.

“The Hendrick’s Gin National Contest is an opportunity to delve into the curiously odd world of Hendrick’s Gin with a once-in-lifetime experience,” comments Jessica Mieczkowska, Canadian Brand Manager, Hendrick’s Gin.  “Alongside a trip to the world’s largest jazz festival, contest winners will enjoy a birds eye view of downtown Montreal in the world-famous Hendrick’s Gin E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M., a truly rare and golden opportunity.”

Open to residents across the ten provinces of Canada, the Hendrick’s Gin National Contest will select one lucky winner plus a guest from five regions: British Columbia, the Prairies (Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan), Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantics (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland). Winners will be gifted a peculiar package for two that includes transportation and luxurious accommodations, Hendrick’s Gin inspired cocktails and fare as well as a pair of coveted golden tickets to ride on the Hendrick’s Gin E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M.  

“Our National Contest will be an opportunity for even more Canadians to partake in our pomp and peculiarity this Summer,” comments Alvin P. Ramchurn, National Brand Ambassador, Hendrick’s Gin.  “It is a wondrous opportunity to experience the Hendrick’s Gin world of whimsy.”

The Hendrick’s Gin National Contest will run online from Monday, April 1st to Wednesday, May 15th, 2019, after which the portal of peculiarity shall close and swiftly disappear. No purchase is necessary and entrants must be of legal drinking age in their eligible province of residence.

OTTAWA, April 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hobo Recreational Cannabis Store (“Hobo”), the new cannabis venture from hospitality company, Donnelly Group, today announces the opening and launch of its first retail store in Ottawa’s Centretown neighbourhood. Located at 391 Bank Street, Hobo’s Centretown location is one of only three cannabis stores set to open in Ottawa this year. Following its inaugural Ottawa launch, Hobo will expand nationwide, with 8 locations set for British Columbia, including Vancouver’s popular Main Street.

“This is a really exciting day for all of us, as Canada takes another step forward in the era of post-prohibition cannabis. The opening of Hobo’s first retail location in Ottawa not only marks Donnelly Group’s place in this movement, but amplifies the impact we’re set to make on the community and retail cannabis industry,” said Harrison Stoker, Vice President of Brand and Culture at Donnelly Group. “We’re focused on making the cannabis buying experience disarming, compassionate and human for Canadians everywhere, regardless of their experience level. To have the opportunity to bring that knowledge and passion to the nation’s capital first, through the thoughtful selection of product, design and team members, is an opportunity we couldn’t be more grateful for.”

Hobo Recreational Cannabis Store is a Canadian collection of privately-owned retail cannabis stores. Drawing inspiration from the literal and figurative journey that one might embark on in their own mind while consuming cannabis, Hobo is dedicated to creating great gathering places for communities across Canada while fostering the sense of wanderlust and travel that resonated so strongly with the brand, in Canada’s cannabis culture. Each store has been thoughtfully outfitted to include design nuances that are a nod to the location’s aesthetic and neighbourhood’s flavour.

“What an exciting time for Ottawa as we welcome our first ever recreational cannabis retail store. We’ve secured ourselves a fitting location in our nation’s capital – particularly in Centretown, which, as part of the downtown core, already has a cannabis culture that is alive and well,” said Jex Woods, General Manager at Hobo’s Bank Street store. “We’re excited to be welcomed by and into the neighbourhood, and to begin building relationships with the popular pubs and coffee shops that the Centretown community loves and frequents.”

Today, Hobo’s Bank Street location officially opens up to Ottawa’s cannabis enthusiasts who now have the opportunity to select and purchase from five cannabis intents: Move (THC dominant), Lift (THC leaning), Balance (equal parts THC to CBD), Calm (CBD dominant), and Rest (THC dominant). Hobo’s Ottawa store is located at 391 Bank Street and is open for business at 10am ET today.
