Weed, California is becoming the hotspot for a day to promote “Netflix is a Joke.”
The streaming service is promoting its line of standup comedy shows by going to towns across the country with funny-sounding names.
The company is partnering with the Town of Weed and will be covering purchases at the Hi-Lo Café for anyone that comes in. The family-run business has been in the town for nearly six decades, according to general manager Derek Grafton.
“We’re excited for people to be coming up. I think it’s going to be good for the town, drawing people and hopefully, they’re going to come up and go ‘Hey Weed’s kind of a cool place. I’m going to come back and visit it again,'” said Grafton.
Hi-Lo Café says it will be enforcing social distancing as per state guidelines. All orders will be take-out only.
The promotional event will go from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, August 12. To find out more about the days events, you can check out Hi-Lo Cafe’s Facebook page.
