Willie Nelson is now hiring employees for his new weed company in Colorado
Want to work for country legend Willie Nelson? His marijuana company Willie’s Reserve is now hiring for five positions in Colorado
It’s not a bad day of job-hunting when you can tell your friends, “Today I applied for a job working at Willie Nelson’s weed company.”
Sure enough, the country music legend’s cannabis business Willie’s Reserve is nearing its launch in Colorado — and the marijuana company is currently hiring for five positions, a spokesperson confirmed to The Cannabist.
In past interviews, Nelson and his colleagues have said the Willie’s Reserve brand will operate from its own storefronts that look and feel like “the anti-Walmart.” But it’s been a while since Nelson and his team have addressed their plans, so it’s not yet clear if there will be an actual Willie’s Reserve storefront — or if the Willie’s Reserve product line, like Snoop Dogg’s Leafs By Snoop line, will partner with existing state marijuana licenses to be sold in unrelated, already established pot shops.
The open Willie’s Reserve positions include production manager, extractor, compliance officer, bookkeeper and sales director.
Nelson and his colleagues first talked publicly about getting into the cannabis business at the 2015 South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.
“(Nelson) wants it to be something that’s reflective of his passion,” Willie’s Reserve’s Michael Bowman told The Daily Beast last year. “Ultimately, it’s his. But it was developed by his family, and their focus on environmental and social issues, and in particular this crazy war on drugs, and trying to be a bright light amongst this trail as we’re trying to extract ourselves from the goo of prohibition read more…
From Westword Magazine Story by firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s a lonely place now, a forlorn and mostly forgotten spot a half-mile west of the interstate and twelve miles north of Trinidad. Flanked by cottonwoods, surrounded by windswept prairie studded with piñon and tumbleweeds, it has an unfinished look, like a roadside attraction somebody started to build and then abandoned.

Señor Ric’s Mexican Restaurant
13200 E. Mississippi
Aurora, CO 80012
Señor Ric’s exterior – you can’t really tell from the photo – has New Mexican style wrap-around blue and red neon tubing at the top of the building. When I first saw Señor Ric’s, I thought of Central Avenue in Albuquerque, although the restaurant seems to be referenced as Santa Fe style. Both work for me.
Owners, Jeff and Julie Eaton have been serving (mostly) traditional Mexican food since 1986. Señor Ric’s has a New Mexican “hacienda” feel to it, spread throughout a huge space. The New Mexican style decor/design provides a bright, cheerful background; Think Rose’s Cantina, white-washed walls and a red rose. Upon entering the restaurant, on the left is the lively, colorful lounge/bar area, on the right – several dining rooms.
We stopped in one evening while the Happy Hour was in session. Señor Ric’s Happy Hour is a habit not easy to break since the Happy Hour is a very good thing. “Daily from 3-6pm & 9-11pm the Happy Hour includes: Traditional Margaritas, Fruit Margaritas, Domestic Drafts, House Wine and Well Drinks.” First trip, I had the red wine (2) for about $4.00, then switched to the 2-4-1 Traditional House Margarita at $4.95;) It’s just about the only Happy Hour, inexpensive-margarita I’ve had that doesn’t give me a headache or worse.
During Happy Hours, there’s a little buffet table in the bar area stocked with a huge bowl of light, thin chips, a spicy been-dip and a decent salsa. On Friday nights they add baby Taquitos. Last trip the Taquitos were of the spinach and cheese variety. Sometimes they serve cheese-filled Taquitos – all complimentary.
On our second visit, we decided to dine from the main menu – in the main dining room. I had the Spinach Enchilada – a tortilla stuffed with sautéed spinach and baked in a light vegetable sauce, “finished with zesty chili con queso” served with Mexican rice and sour cream for about four bucks. I wanted to try this dish because of the spinach. It was excellent Tex-Mex with a healthy twist. Here’s the skinny on two:
“Two enchiladas stuffed with sautéed spinach and baked in a
light vegetable sauce. Finished with our zesty chili con queso.
Served with Mexican rice and sour cream ($8.99.”)
Other traditional items from the menu include: Appetizers from $7.49 to $9.79, Combinations, such as: Two cheese enchiladas, Mexican rice and refried beans, $8.49. (With pork, beef or chicken add $1.00;) also flautas, burritos, rellenos, tamales and tacos.
Fajitas are on the menu.
“One half pound of marinated strips of steak, chicken or pork served on a sizzling skillet with fresh picco de gallo, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, refried beans and your choice of hot flour or corn tortillas” $13.49. Mix beef, chicken or pork add $1.00
“A crispy flour tortilla filled with your choice of one of the tasty ingredients listed below, topped with mild green sauce, Mexican rice and choice of refried beans or black beans. Served with sour cream.” Choose: Shredded Beef $8.99, Chicken $8.99, Ground Beef $8.99, Bean (black or refried) $8.29
“Ric stuffs this chimichanga with his famous Green Pork Chili and tops it with scoops of sour cream and guacamole. Olé!” $9.29
