There's a tiny mention of WS in today's Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Just thought I'd share.

Drinkers, this mag's your im-bible

It's not just drinks anymore. Now it's liquid culture. Take a sip of it with Portland-based Imbibe, a newish magazine devoted to alcohol, coffee and other libations.

The current issue features a "marmalade sour" recipe from bar chef Jamie Boudreau (look for the drink on the menu at Vessel when the bar opens later this fall at 1312 Fifth Ave.). It consists of a "sweetly tart citrus marmalade plus fiery cachaca." Other Seattle-area highlights include a look at the Coffee Equipment Co. and its "Clover" invention, which allows baristas to brew a single cup of coffee at a time; a short piece on "beer ambassador" Arlen Harris, executive director of the Washington State Brewers Guild; and one on "absinthe evangelist" Gwydion Stone of a Web forum called The Wormwood Society (wormwoodsociety.org). Other articles we liked were a summary of common misconceptions about espresso, and a feature in which Lucy Brennan of Mint and 820 in Portland tested six home blenders and recommended the best.

The magazine is available at Barnes & Noble, Borders and Whole Foods, as well as various independent bookstores and wine shops. Look online at imbibemagazine.com.

That kind of went out the window with the piece in Mixologist. I've posted the article in its entirety, so don't waste a trip to the store unless you're starting a scrapbook. ;)

As long as he doesn't offer us any fruit punch, I'm comfortable with that.

Depends on how you define "fruit punch". Anise and fennel are technically fruit.

For anyone who doesn't know better, which do you think is the screen/porn name "Gwydion Stone" or "Hiram" frankly my vote would be both.
:P
Congrats on the mention.

Nice. And now that you are fully outed may I just re state that Gwydion Stone is one of my favourite names EVER!!
Litany against fear of Absinthe - I must not fear Absinthe. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my Absinthe. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the Absinthe has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

... which do you think is the screen/porn name?

It says "Rod Wood" on my drivers license.

And now that you are fully outed may I just re state that Gwydion Stone is one of my favourite names EVER!!

I've considered changing it to "John Smith." I get: Gwendolyn, Gwenlon, Gwiddlin, Gilligan, Gideon, Guidon, William, Woody, Widion, Gwindion, Ginion, Gindion and many aborted attempts ending with "Mr. Stone."

If you do change it, let me know. I have the Italian version of John Smith. I'd pay good money to be Gwydion Stone. I'd open up shop as a private eye, specializing in occult murders.
Ah, la petite mort; such beautiful suicide.

When I recieved my glasses from him almost a year ago, I looked at the return address and was like, huh? I thought it was made up. Andrew T confirmed it to me. I like it, because Gwydion was a name of a character in a series of books by Lloyd Alexander called "The Prydain Chronicles". I loved them and re-read them a couple of years ago.

GL- If any cult leader offers you Kool-Aid™, pretend to drink it and then dump it in the nearest bush.

Odd thing, that quote came to us as a favorite of an elementary school teacher. She is one of our good absinthe friends that Shai and Pensieve met at Reefer Madness. Now retired, she was a hell of a teacher and has a wonderfully twisted sense of humor.
