The rooftop pool deck at The Clarendon Hotel and Spa is generally an excellent place to hang out. But as a setting for a multicourse meal infused with marijuana, it's hard to beat. Chef Derek Upton has been hosting an educational culinary series here called "Elevated Under the Stars" since early spring. The cool rooftop views of central Phoenix are accompanied by anything from gnocchi to infused Bolognese and served with mocktails (infusion optional) and a discussion of cooking, dosing, and flavor profiles and pairings. Tickets for these flower-powered fine-dining events cost $250 each for the gastronomically curious who want to eat, and $50 for a gallery seat sans dinner. Upton often has as-seen-on-TV guests join him for the cannabis dinners and is a bit of a celebrity chef himself since appearing on the 2020 Netflix original series Cooked with Cannabis.
