Old Absinthe House, New Orleans, LA
Gumbopages article about the history of absinthe in New Orleans, linking to the "Good to the Last Drip" cover story article (12/17/02) in the Gambit Weekly.
One of the highlights of my visit to the Old Absinthe House was being able to cajole the bar wench into making me a real absinthe frappé with absinthe I had brought with me. That, and looking around and wondering just exactly where Aleister Crowley was sitting while he wrote The Green Goddess.
