Absinthe in Iowa

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.

      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.

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