WHEN: Saturday, April 9, 2011.

Celebration - 7:30pm till Closing. Presentations - 8:30 to 10:30pm.

WHY: Modern science triumphed over historic propaganda vindicating fine pre-ban absinthe of its alleged evils, leading to the U.S. ban being lifted December 2007. This Celebration seeks to dispel the myths surrounding this misunderstood spirit; expose an interested public to the smoothness, complexity and variety of tastes artisanal absinthes offer; and illustrate proper ways to drink them.

WHAT: As with our successful debut event, a full house is expected at this 2nd-of-its-kind happening for Houston. The celebration will commence throughout AvantGarden, with live jazz and light hors d'oeuvres. Absinthe tastings traditionale--including a new release, and special cocktails, will broaden your taste adventure. To fill out the evening’s visual experience, a showing of Damian Hevia’s compelling absinthe images will be featured for sale, as well as reproduction absinthe posters.
Then as enchanting fairies pass by, you can make your way to the courtyard for presentations that will quench your curiosities. Terms like artemisia absinthium, Dr. Ordinaire, louche, dose, chop.gif, Legendré, Sazerac, and L’Heure Verte will be explained by Herbsaint historian and collector, Jay Hendrickson and renowned absinthe historian and Master Distiller of Lucid Absinthe, Ted Breaux--Viridian Spirits.

We urge you to be apart of the sights in your elegant attire—be inspired by steampunk and the Belle Epoch. For an entertaining way to introduce yourself to absinthe, or expand on what you know—buy a ticket soon at
