Your Perks: 1) A canvas Banksy print. Maybe you’ve heard of him? Makes infamous street art/holiday gifts. 2) An extremely intelligently designed umbrella. No shame in having an umbrella that’s smarter than you. 3) A slew of vintage Rolex and Cartier watches. Like, basically all of them.

81-Cent Drinks and Buying Troy Aikman’s House
You are what you weekend.

Keeping Warm with Spiked Yoo-hoo
Double Wide: a bastion of craft cocktailery, it’s not. But if you’re looking for some spiked Yoo-hoo, then yes. And now the bar’s serving up warm drinks, like a hot White Russian, a moonshine-cider concoction and Yoo-hoo with Rumple Minze and whipped cream. It’s what the holidays are all about.
81-Cent Drinks Probably Sound Good
December 5, 1933, marked the end of Prohibition. December 5, 2014, marks the day that Victor Tangos celebrates the end of Prohibition with 81-cent Sazeracs and rum punches. So, fair warning, there’ll be some pennies to deal with.
You can skip most Christmas tree lightings. Because most Christmas tree lightings don’t have live jazz, bowls of soba from Tei-An and Irish coffees from Proof + Pantry. This one does, though. You may have inferred that.
Le Vú turns two on Saturday. But unlike most two year olds, this one’s celebrating with cocktails, champagne and dancing atop tables. Tack on one DJ Helena (an import from Vegas), and you’ve got yourself a party. Try not to get a sparkler in the eye.
