Do You Know What The Green Eyed Fairy is?

Earlier this week on our twitter page we posted a link to latest video from Los Angeles via Ann Arbor soul boy-wunderkind Mayer Hawthorne. We have been fans of his ever since hearing him first croon this past summer. Speaking of summer F THIS COLD WEATHER!!. And now back to the post....Mayer Hawthorne's jam "green eyed love" is a pure and simple track to chill to. We in our ignorance thought this song was ode to another woman or perhaps something else that is green & sticky? but we were wrong it is infact about absinthe.

Not sure how many of you out there have tried absinthe. If you have never had the chance, you now one because coming up here on October 30th @ The Cleveland Museum of Art from 5:30 to 9 p.m there will be an absithe tasting. The reason for this tasting will be in celebration of the recently opened Gauguin: Paris, 1889 & Mr. Gauguin himself loved to drink the green eyed fairy. Also if you have not had a chance to view this exhibition (we went on the first day it was open.) we suggest you do so. Why would you not want to look at great art and drink absinthe? You have no excuse not to go :)

Towards the end of college, a friend of mine had brought back some real absinthe from Russia so we all did shots. We decided to light them on fire first; I guess we thought it looked cool. Anyway, one single shot and it was the most F'ed up I'd ever been, easily. It's hard for me to describe, but apparently at some point I ran home a mile and a half to my dorm, or so I was told the next morning.

I may not actually be able to pass this up.

I just tried absinthe for the first time in SF at a cool little joint in the Haight called The almbic. Not purely absinthe, the cocktail also had aged tequila and ginger syrup - yeppers - absinthe AND tequila. Praise the lord for abundant public transporation in this city. Loved the tongue-numbingness of the absinthe. Think I might check out the art museum event - thanks for the heads up.
