Turning Green

If fast food served with wine-in-a-box is not quite bringing the romance anymore, the Veuve restaurant might have the solution. The restaurant is serving a four-course dinner that includes absinthe, the infamous alcoholic drink whose principle component can be used in the synthesis of psychedelic drugs. Woo-hoo! The drink, often called the Green Fairy, will be paired with a menu that features pan-seared foie gras, green tea-smoked Heirloom tomatoes, braised wild boar shank and an absinthe frappé. Get psyched up 7 p.m. Friday. Price is $100 per person. Veuve is located at 5100 Belt Line Road. Call 972-788-1928 or visit veuvedallas.com.
Fri., Dec. 22, 7 p.m.
