Bourbon Ice Cream, Macy's Elves and 750 Cocktails

The weekend is an early stocking stuffer.

Wednesday
Bacar's Holiday Champagne Menu
WEDNESDAY BUBBLES

Bacar's Holiday Champagne Menu

Pick from about 20 different champagnes from boutique producers like Rene Geoffrey, Gaston Chiquet and Salon, and classics like Veuve and Billecart by the glass, taste and flight—in other words, you've got options.

Now through Dec 31, Bacar, 448 Brannan St (between 3rd and 4th), 415 904-4100

Wednesday
David Sedaris' The Santaland Diaries
WEDNESDAY ON ICE

David Sedaris' The Santaland Diaries

If you liked Bad Santa and A Christmas Story, you'll want to add The Santaland Diaries, a one-man stage adaptation of David Sedaris' sarcastic tale of life as a Macy's elf to the mix—think of it as merry, minus the cheesy.

Thursday
Savoy Cocktail Recipes Online
THURSDAY CHEER

Savoy Cocktail Recipes Online

What this new drink database lacks in web design, it makes up for with 750 classic cocktail recipes from legendary post-Prohibition bible The Savoy Cocktail Book. So you can mix up a gin-filled Bull Dog Cocktail or something even more potent, like the Fernet and brandy-based Stomach Reviver like a pro.

Sunday
Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream Shop Opens
SUNDAY SUNDAES

Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream Shop Opens

Slide into a reclaimed swivel stool and order a round of bourbon...ice cream. Other exotic flavors include McEvoy Olive Oil, Foie Gras and Pistachio Bacon—yup, bacon and foie—and we're still talking about ice cream.

Slated to open Friday, Humphry Slocombe, 2790 Harrison St (at 24th), 415 550-6971

Thursday
I-Spa I-Resolutions Special
THURSDAY RESOLVING

I-Spa I-Resolutions Special

If you resolved to start the year off a bit less stressed, hit up the I-Spa. Their I-Resolutions Deals include treatments like the Murad Man Facial or the Indulging Aromatherapy Massage. Maybe a relaxing rub down will rub off.
