Firefighters were called to a fire today on the site of the Cafe Royal.
The cafe was a favourite haunt of playwright Wilde, who became so drunk on absinthe he started to hallucinate. Wilde claimed he saw a waiter watering a field of tulips. Celebrity chef -thug Gordon Ramsay held his wedding do there.

Please do not use UPPER case like that No need to shout! The Cafe Royal is closed anyway, but was an absinthe watering way back when.

Some folks say that Wilde never actually said that! There is another one about absinthe and sunsets.....flowery language? or description of absinthe effect?

Those tulips brushed his legs after an absinthe session but perhaps it was just eczema
