Seriously, Grub Street’s wassail game has probably never been tighter, especially now that the rules for drinking with family during Christmas have been laid out in such an organized fashion. If you’re not in a mulled cider mood, mind you, it’s been a banner year for food and restaurants, several of which happen to make great destinations for out-of-town guests. And if you’re still in need of any last-minute gifts, consider these stellar booze varieties that can be picked up in a pinch, these chef-assembled gift baskets, and this batch of gadgets and food-related subscriptions. Have a happy and safe holiday — we’ll be back on Friday, ideally with a fuzzy new sweater and some leftovers.
