Let’s pretend for a minute that you are worth your weight in gold. Metaphorically, you sure as hell are. In reality, well, not so much.

Nevertheless, of all times of year when you’d consider spending a few sawbucks for a shimmering glass of expensive wine, or, you know, almost a grand for some incredible sake (you know: shopping fuel), this is the time when any weird and out of character indulgence would be tolerated, if not exactly justified. Unless you always tend to have a couple of grand burning a hole in your pocket for a choice bottle of bubbly. If so, see below. If not, see below anyway. Grinch.
