Yes, it’s me, the hair colour is different but it’s always me! Hi to everybody!
I would like to show you the printed program but unfortunately the image is not available yet so I will do it as soon as it’s possible, for the moment I can only give you some detail hoping to have the pleasure of your presence.

The purpose of the party is to explain what’s the truth about absinthe.
In Italy the interest is growing but the legends and the twisted information make the diffusion of not worthy products called Absinhte increase.
We have already begun this information diffusion process here in Italy organizing little events, tastings and repeating hundreds of times the same things without never get tired.
Finally we start seeing some positive results and now we think that Italy could be ready for the first party dedicated to Absinthe.
It Will be a simple but funny party, with good drinks and obviously good food.
There will be also an exposure of pictures, live music suitable for the situation and poetry reading .

the party of Friday evening will be nice, with very special music and of Saturday evening will be certainly very striking.
I think and I hope that it could be a very funny event.

To come in Mantova by plane the simplest solution is fly in Verona and then reach Mantova by train or bus or calling me if there are problems.
In alternative it is possible to fly to Milan or Brescia.

I know that The Standard Deviant unfortunately won’t come…(Hi!woh are you?)
I really hope that someone here will be present!

Margherita! Welcome!
First of all, thank you and Marco and your friend for bringing those nice wines.
Second, this means I need to somehow pay a plane ticket to Italy... Damn it.

Cazzo! I just left Milan Saturday morning. I would love to participate in the event, but it will be almost impossible for me to return during that week of December.

I have been educating a few Italian friends about the Green Fairy but it seems impossible to find a traditional style absinthe in the liquor stores of Milan, Lissone and Monza. Unfortunately, the only brands I have been able find that are even close to being worthy of preparing for a first tasting have been Tunnel and La Fee. Despite warning them that flavor is no where close to what I prefer to drink at least I was able to demonstrate the traditional preparation.

I had to choke back a laugh when the proprietor of a store in Lissone told us that Tunell was one of the highest quality Absinthes. There was a brand of “Absinthe” (the name escapes me at the moment) on the shelf next to the Tunnel that offered their product in black, blue and red; one color for each level of alcohol content. I should have snapped a picture with my mobile phone. Anyway, this seems to be the norm in the liquor stores of Lombardy.

In talking with other acquaintances about Absinthe, or Assenzio as they call it, I have found that there are a few people who have tried it but never prepared in the traditional way. Mixing it with coffee seems to be a common practice.

Despite being an oil mix I am curious about the Italian brand by Pastiglie Leone. http://www.gastarea.it/italiano/Prodotti/LIQU100805.asp I have not been able to find it in my travels.

Margherita, Do you know of any stores in or around Milan and Monza that carry any of the higher quality brands?

I will pass on the information about your party to my Italian friends. Do you have an e-mail address where they can reach you if they choose to do so?

Ciao a tutti!

I admit, Captian that I was drunk and disorderly, but it wasn't my fault. I was hit by a French absithe shell!

Sounds like a wonderful program, I wish I could make it!

American absinthe parties are just a bunch of people getting together to drink . . . But it's not like we can advertise and charge admission, either.

Best of luck!

Sounds like it would be very nice. My next trip is to the Louvre. On a side note does anyone know if that crazy(in a good way) guy still has that bookstore in Paris? He used to let people stay there for working. I am sure someone here knows who I am talking about.

Don't be. It's not worth it.

Every time I see the title of this thread, I think it's going to be about a new political force in Italy. I would move there just to vote for them.

A different kind of green party?

A fine absinthe is the product of knowledge, craftsmanship, and talent. An exceptional absinthe is the product of those things plus obsession. Most absinthe is the product of marketing.

LF04 and LCLF05. You missed it.

Twice.

Now, you must host your own.

Only if it's a pajama party.

And then the host gets to pick whom to drive.
