I don't know if anything has changed since I lived in van 4 years ago, but back then every club that played electronic music was either gay or gay fetish

A lot of the clubs are on Granville Street in downtown.
Absinthe, as far as I know, isn't sold, but you can be served. Someone correct me on this if I'm wrong.

Its a place to chill, not a "club" type place. I think they charge you $5 to go in and hang out. It is byop.

I think Redroom playes electronic music...
I like the Burbon, or the Blarney stone. They are down in gastown, close to a few other night clubs. Always a good time, cheap pitchers of beer and normally decent music.

i saw Absinthe on the shelves at BC liquer stores. This was like 2 weeks ago.

Also, what crowd are you into? That plays a pretty big part in which club/lounge to go. IE young'ins, asians, spanish, etc...

Yes, you probably did see absinthe - however, it is not the same make you go nutty, paint, cut off your ear and mail it to a prostitute absinthe - it no longer has wormwood in it (in north america... not sure about other parts of the world). The Pernod company convinced the french government to ban it, although apparently the psychoactive properties were somewhat exaggerated? Beats me - but the stuff you get here is very alcoholic, and tastes of anise.

Just did some reading, and apparently what made the old stuff make you go nutty was more so the poor quality and the methanol content (the stuff that makes one go blind and well, die)... so if you really are keen on something to make you go loopy BC has ample other sources of green naughty stuff...

Here is what is available in BC liquor stores: http://www.bcliquorstores.com/produc...26perPage%3D20

I believe I have picked up a bottle locally and seen thujone content on the back label, but as you say Chupacabras, it may have been a bit exaggerated they've found more recently. Wormwood isn't the only herb that contains thujone. There are usually regulations on the percentage in certified alcohol, and I'm not sure what it might be in Canada. I remember sitting around a picnic table as a kid while my family was tasting half shots of the latest creation. They'd wait at least half an hour before consuming any more of a batch, to make sure didn't start seeing lebrecons or losing any sight. They said it was to make sure it didn't contain a dangerous amount of wood alcohol (methanol).
