There's no better method for escaping the mishegoss of holiday shopping than by ducking into the warm, restful oasis of a festively bedecked hotel lobby that happens to have a saloon on the premises. Set down your packages, pick your potion (it's Manhattan season!), recline amongst the carols and evergreen, and imbibe. Several establishments are shaking up holiday favorites like eggnog and hot buttered rum right about now, and although they may not do as a regular diet, they're undeniably sweet and warming during these darkling December days and nights. Down a couple and before long you'll be ready to brave the storm, refreshed and renewed.
