So you hear the name Chong, and what do you think of? Drugs? Laughs? Federal prison? More drugs? Well, if you like prison, you’re strange. But if you’re into drugs and laughs, you’ll want to visit Hyena’s on Saturday night to bro down with Grammy winner Tommy Chong, of the famous duo Cheech and Chong. A marijuana activist, Chong blasts the illegalization of pot (as we’d expect), and makes a pretty damn good case for its decriminalization. But really, a 74-year-old hippy telling jokes on stage for a few bucks is reason enough to attend. He might also dive into that time he got arrested for distributing 7,500 bongs and water pipes on the Internet. Epic. Ticket prices range from $18.50 to $23.50. Basically, the price of a cheap bong ... that you could buy on the Internet. Not that we’re advising you to. ***showtimes? which hyena’s? address?*** Buy tickets online at hyenascomedynightclub.com/dallas.
