What makes a better gift than DIY cocktail supplies? This kind of gift is cute, unique, and way more useful than another pair of hand-knit socks. Best of all, it’s surprisingly easy to make the components of one of my favorite cocktails, the Manhattan. Well, all of the components except for the rye whiskey. That one, I’ll leave to the experts.

As we wind up 2008, I will be happily ringing in the new year and looking forward to the new restaurants that 2009 will bring to San Francisco. Here are three restaurants specifically that I cannot wait for: Contigo. Contigo is being opened by a friend — Brett Emerson from In Praise of Sardines. Urbino. Urbino will be the third restaurant to be opened in San Francisco by the group that brought us A16 and SPQR. Heaven’s Dog. In January, we can look forward to a new restaurant from Charles Phan of Slanted Door fame.
