Absinthe Soiree at the Sorrento Hotel, March 7

It’s come up from time to time that I have a taste for absinthe. If you’re in Seattle this Sunday, March 7, you can join me for a glass or three at an Absinthe Soiree at the Sorrento Hotel, starting at 7pm.

We’ll be in the Fireside Room, and I’ll be in the company of fine folks such as Robert Hess (now, without facial hair!) from Small Screen Network, Gwydion Stone from Marteau and the Wormwood Society, and Marc Bernhard from Pacific Distillery. In addition to the absinthe tasting there’ll be French cabaret music, an absinthe-cocktail cash bar, some food to keep you steady while you have another taste of absinthe, and a bunch of folks who are similarly more interested in the green fairy than the Oscars’ red carpet. Tickets are only $20, and you can buy them here.

Hope to see you there.
