Final Countdown

Introducing Your Anti-Resolutions

In six days, you’ll be downing coconut milk smoothies, rescuing pound puppies and finishing your novel. Or not. Either way, before your New Year’s resolutions go into effect, you can let yourself go. Allow us to help.

THE FINAL CHOCOLATE BENDER

The Chocolate Truffle Tandem Massage

Your 2012 to-do list is impressive—biking up Everest isn’t easy. But until then, indulge a bit with this Swedish massage at the Stoneleigh, where you and a companion will be covered in macadamia nut oil and cocoa. So really, just a normal Tuesday afternoon.

THE FINAL GLUTTONY-FEST

The Incinerator at the BratHaus

Salads. Smoothies. Salad smoothies. Yep, you’re totally going to eat healthy in the new year. But you still have time for one last splurge. We’re thinking the spiciest brats in Dallas—pork and beef sausages smothered with habanero peppers. We recommend chasing them with a cold shower.

The World’s Biggest Chicken-Fried Steak
THE FINAL GLUTTONY-FEST: PART II

The World’s Biggest Chicken-Fried Steak

Before you say adios to fried food, we have one last challenge. It concerns the world’s biggest chicken-fried steak (nine pounds). This thing’s 14 inches in diameter, covered in gravy and free if you finish it. Maybe bring $70 just in case.

Available at Cowtown Diner, 350 Main St, Fort Worth, 817-332-9555

Punch Bowls at the Cedars Social
THE FINAL RIDICULOUSLY HUGE COCKTAIL

Punch Bowls at the Cedars Social

Good news: your firm’s going to have a record-breaking 2012. Bad news: more work, less play. That’s why you need to go big—punch-bowl-service big. Here, you’ll get five servings of gin-filled punch in a vintage china bowl. You should definitely expense this.   

Getting Chauffeured in a Maybach
THE FINAL JOYRIDE

Getting Chauffeured in a Maybach

In 2012, you’re really going to cut back on unnecessary luxuries. Really. But until then, you should probably reserve a Maybach from Platinum Motorcars, replete with a chauffeur to get you from point A to point B. It’s basically like carpooling.
