Recreational weed has only been legal in Illinois for about eight months now, which means that there are likely more people than ever searching for some late-night (or mid-afternoon) munchies. Stoners throughout Chicago will have some additional options later this year when rapper and marijuana entrepreneur Wiz Khalifa launches a new delivery-only restaurant in Chicago, serving some of his favorite dishes to eat while blazed.
Billboard broke the news about Khalifa's new food-service venture earlier this week, reporting that HotBox by Wiz will begin taking orders in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Washington, D.C., Indianapolis, Houston, New York City and Pittsburgh on October 1. Menu specifics are hazy, but you can expect plenty of dishes with names that reference some of Khalifa's biggest hits, including a Taylor Gang turkey burger, Mac & Yellow mac and cheese and a Mile High dark chocolate brownie.
HotBox by Wiz will be operated by Nextbite, a company that specializes in delivery-only restaurants (also known as "ghost kitchens") that are available through services like Uber Eats, DoorDash, Postmates and Grubhub. Nextbite already has a presence in Chicago with its Crave Burger, Monster Mac, Firebelly Wings, Outlaw Burger and the Big Melt brands.
Keep an eye on the HotBox by Wiz Instagram account to scope out the dishes you'll be able to order post- or pre-toke when deliveries begin on October 1.
