Absinthe in Iowa

Jeanh Sep 6, 2010 04:23 PM

I was at a wedding in Rockford Illinois last evening. I had read about a bar downtown there that served absinthe. Interesting stuff, interesting 'ritual' to serve it.

So, I'm wondering if there are any bars, any where in Iowa that serve it.

    I think that The Continental had absinthe at one point. It's in the East Village.

        Awesome! We're heading to Des Moines in a couple of weeks to watch our niece in a rowing meet. Staying somewhere downtown. Thanks so much.
