COLORADO — With recreational marijuana legal in Colorado, it was only a matter of time before a weed-themed resort opened in the state. CannaCamp will be in business next month, reports Curbed, and among the amenities will be "wake-and-bake breakfasts." At the end of the day, after long hours of toking up and spending time outdoors, patrons can partake in 4:20 happy hour and then cure their munchies cravings with a fine dining menu that includes Black Angus prime rib au jus, filet of elk, and pork loin with green chile sauce.

CALIFORNIA — For carnivores who feel guilty about consuming beef during the state's drought, there's a solution: Skip Showers for Beef. As the movement's website explains, all it takes is missing 37 showers per every 4-ounce hamburger consumed, and the diner's eco-footprint is evened out — and when it rains, that's a cheat day. For anyone who needs more convincing, there's a persuasive video featuring testimony from an attractive, albeit grimy, couple. Note: Don't take this too seriously. [Skip Showers for Beef]

AWARDS SEASON — The James Beard Foundation has announced its leadership awards recipients, honoring Don Bustos, farmer and co-director or American Friends Service Committee; Eliot Coleman, farmer, author, and researcher; Saru Jayaraman, co-founder of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United; Sam Kass, the White House's former senior policy advisor for nutrition; and Bryant Terry, chef and author. The awards are meant to recognize "visionaries across all sectors responsible for creating a healthful, sustainable, and safe food world." The 2015 Leadership Award recipients will be honored on October 19 at a dinner ceremony in New York, a part of the foundation's sixth-annual Food Conference. [EaterWire]
