Absinthe Minded? 

Pssst. Want to try some absinthe? Good news: Thanks to loosened regulations, you can answer in the affirmative without having to book a transatlantic flight or befriend a smuggler. In fact, you can taste this legendary spirit tonight, when Morton's the Steakhouse (7822 Bonhomme Avenue, Clayton) presents "Absinthe: The Green Hour." Between 6 and 7 p.m., sip Pernod absinthe cocktails (as well as Pernod absinthe served in the traditional spoon-'n'-sugar-cube style) and nosh on miniature prime cheeseburgers, oysters Rockefeller and crab-stuffed mushrooms. Before long, you'll realize why this extraordinary anise-flavored beverage was so beloved by nineteenth-century artists and poets — and why modern connoisseurs are so pleased by its re-legalization. The Green Hour costs $45, which includes tax and tip. For more information about this elegant evening, call 314-725-4008, or follow the green fairy to www.mortons.com/absinthe.
