Tonight at the Edison: Absinthe, Vaudeville and Incandescence

Tonight the circus is in the Edison. Every Wednesday night, Lucent Dossier, vaudeville circus/dance troupe, will be hanging from the rafters and performing on stage for the well-dressed Edison patrons in the upscale downtown bar's weekly happening, Incandescence. (Get it? Like the lightbulb.). To get a sense of what Lucent Dossier is like, check out an early LAist photo gallery.

And if the night isn't crazy enough, maybe a little absinthe will do it for you. The specialty cocktails for the event have been touched by the Green Fairy and will be served in vintage medicine bottles. The Edison mixologists reworked classic cocktail recipes and achieved the best way to accent a cocktail with absinthe without having it overpower it.
