an Absinthe affair (8/28)

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

Since 1912 the green elixir of darkness has been illegal to our country, but guess what? Not any more! Why? You might ask…the government never banned absinthe itself but rather thujone, the wormwood-derived compound that supposedly gives the stuff its trippy edge. However, modern chemical analysis shows that thujone survives distilling in quantities so small they are actually legal. God I LOVE science.



Don’t miss Pier W’s Absinthe tasting, where you can sample an array of once forbidden liquor...experience the "green fairy." If you aren’t in the mood to taste numerous samples of the green delight, a tall glass of bubbly with a shot of absinthe is a perfect nightcap for you. I have drank it once, in a tall champagne flute and I felt like I was right out of a 1940’s French film, super glamorous. I am definitely not going to miss this event, a glamorously-trippy evening perhaps? :)

7:00 pm $20.00 per person. For reservations call 216.228.2250 or visit www.selectrestaurants.com/pier/index.html
Remember "Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder"

Oooh, thanks for letting me know about this event! I had absinthe in Prague last year -- loved it. And it made me very silly drunk. LOL
