I love Chowhound. I use it any time we are going out of town and I want to find the best “foodie” restaurants.
So I should probably explain how I came across a video talking about absinthe. We are planning a trip to Las Vegas and I wanted to make reservations for restaurants that we haven’t tried yet. Chris and I LOVE food and we love the great food that Las Vegas has to offer. With Aria, Cosmopolitan and that whole area near Mandarin Oriental now open I wanted to see what they had there.
Last year I tried a few restaurants in that area and this year I found Sage at Aria and I started to look at their menu. One menu is the “dessert and absinthe” menu. That caught my attention – it is not something I had ever seen before. I know absolutely nothing about absinthe except what is apparently not even a correct thing – that it is green. On the menu the only US glass of absinthe available was the St. George Verte, a distiller just outside of San Francisco. Their website had this awesome video:
As one of the comments said, I agree that I could listen to Lance speak about anything! He is very well spoken and funny!
