Inspiring minds from Hemingway to Baudelaire, Van Gogh to Aleister Crowley, the beguiling green liquor Absinthe has enjoyed a romantic reputation from devilish temptress to dangerous addiction.

Join us for an evening as we explore the myths and truths of Absinthe's story, how it rose to be the drink of the bohemian elite, inspired a generation of arts and literature, came to be the drug at the heart of a murderous scandal banishing it for a century, and how it came to rise again, here in the Bay Area.

Guest speakers include absinthe enthusiasts Rachel Clein-Cunningham, Douglas Worley, Beth Abdallah, and Jared Williams, cocktail master of DNA Lounge.
