Absinthe, that naughty green elixir that was banned in the United States for 96 years, is back on the shelves in Denver -- as reported by Westword here and here. Supposedly hallucinogenic, the wormwood-laced alcohol was a favorite of Oscar Wilde, Ernest Hemingway and Vincent van Gogh -- who some people say cut off his ear while under its influence -- and now the Wine Seller ( 600 East 6th Avenue) is saluting that twisted legend with the following sign: "Lend us an Ear. Absinthe is Here." Cheers. -- Jonathan Shikes
