I have read that "cocktail" derived from the practice of stirring a drink with a rooster feather. It's not the stupidest attempt at etymology I've seen, but I imagine a parrot feather would be a little stiffer.

Normally Green Imp comes over, we drink and talk in the relative calm of Paradise, and I meet him in NoLa to lend moral support in the Herbsaint Room and help to watch his things so the mob doesn't walk off with any of them. We dine, have a few drinks, look at old buildings, old folk stuff. This year at the last minute (literally), I flew in a special guest to liven things up, and so he did. Here he is; I know it's blurry but my hands shake, and he was laughing in the midst of drunk-dialing Ted Breaux, pretending to be someone else.

Do the Goths still come out of the woodwork for that event? Goths and Masons is what I recall hearing about being there.

Then I try to convince myself that it is.

I don't recall seeing any Goths; it's not vampirey enough for them.

I recall seeing a woman on the sidewalk on Canal Street, raging, "That muthafucka dead and this time he gonna stay dead; I don't know how the hell he was alive again in the first place", to which one of her companions said (turning away as he took a sip of Olde English 800 from a paper bag), "I ain't even wanting to hear all that bullshit".

The Homeless do come out of the woodwork for this event. I noticed a few of them wearing Tales bracelets. Pay one price and drink for a week; why not? If the Olde English 800 rep was in town, I didn't see him though.

Green Imp seemed confused when he called me on Friday afternoon and asked where I was, and I said, at the airport. He apparently thought I was leaving town, but I said I was awaiting a mystery guest. Grim hid in a corner and ambushed him when he walked into the house, then we retired to the porch. Grim said he liked it as green as it is around here; to me and Green Imp it was just hot.

The silver hefalump in service for the first time in years. I didn't realize the head holds a sugar cube until Grim intuitively put one in there - it slows down the flow to a drip as well. Prolly designed that way (duh!).

An absinthe with no commercial potential. Frank Zappa had an album by that name, because that's what the record company man had told him. Enough said.

A stirring story for sure, though I've no feathers of rooster nor parrot.

Belle Epoque be damned, it's the first decade or so of the 21st century that I hate having missed out on in the absinthe world. I trust you all enjoyed your reunion of sorts and lived up to your potential, as uncommercial as it may be.

It was great to meet Green Imp, Artemis and Grim outside the Monteleone on Saturday. Sorry that we couldn't spend more time together.

Ted, Tirador, Shabba, Larspeart and PierreVerte were also in town.

As far as I could tell, the Old Absinthe House (birthplace of the Absinthe Frappé) no longer burns absinthe. That's progress.

Beautiful pixs, I can almost taste the absinthe. How was that Greenopal?

Looks like a great time was had.

He monkey's around and calls everyone "Bro" but at least he doesn't pretend to be an all-knowing insider.
