On Wednesday July 16th absinthe producers and enthusiasts gathered in the idyllic setting of the Old Absinthe Museum to revive a ritual not embraced since absinthe was banned in the states.  The event was an astounding success; the aroma of absinthe lingered in the heavy New Orleans air as hundreds of absinthieurs experienced La Fée Absinthe Parisienne whilst absorbing this newly opened homage to absinthe.
