Desert Secret Cup – Recap

Screen Shot 2016-01-19 at 3.20.33 PM

As we pulled up to this year’s Secret Cup:Desert Cup 2016, in the cool desert of Phoenix, Arizona, we were unsure of the exact location, until we opened the doors to the truck and followed our nose! Feeling like Toucan Sam, we found the building and was giddy with excitement! Arriving early was a must as we wanted to see the looks on everyone’s faces as they lined up, eager to join in on the fun.

After we entered inside, vendors didn’t waste any time to indulge in each other’s contest entries, possibly trying to size up the competition, as well as sample some delicious delicates! Each booth offered a variety of mouth-watering flower, oil, and edibles including all of your favorite candy treats! Day one of the Desert Cup exceeded our expectations, leaving high hopes for the next day to be just as fun!

Little did we know, that day two of this event turned out to be a total bust. Right as we pulled up to the venue, instead of being greeted with smiley stoners, there was a swarm of cops, crawling all over the parking lot. After dipping out to avoid the drama, we checked on Instagram for the latest minute-to-minute updates. We learned that there was a cease and desist ordered, due to a noise violation and apparently not having proper permits.

Having the day cut short, as well as missing the announcement of the winners was a bit of a disappointment, but regardless, no one was cited or arrested despite one of the vendors being unjustly handcuffed. Since the event was shut down, there was a private ceremony held later on, announcing the results. Grimey Gatsby wants to congratulate the winners (see below), as well as all the growers and extractors who entered! Hopefully this mishap was just a fluke, and next year’s Desert Cup will be back on track!
