Bear Creek Spirits & Wine breathes life into stale shindigs with a bountiful selection of snacks, mixers, glassware, and celebratory cigars. Cocktails can be deliciously blended using muddlers, shakers, and strainers with nonalcoholic mixers by Mr & Mrs T, including the classic bloody-mary mix ($5.99 for 64 oz. bottle), the tangy margarita mix ($4.49 for 1 L.), and the thick accents of a white russian. Chips and snacks ($0.99+) savor the flavor of any party table and can also become a strategic moat when placed around a wall of coolers. Liquid takes a distinct shape when bordered by exotic glassware, including the stocky Lolita Birthday shot glass ($12), the full-bodied BFF wine glass ($25), and the top-heavy Beach Diva martini glass ($25). Care for your bottles with aerators and foil cutters, or use cork cages to keep your souvenir stoppers from flying away. Smugly infiltrating the store with sweet aromas, an army of cigars including Cohibo Toro ($16.99), Ashton Churchill ($10.99), and Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story ($7.99), file into the in-store humidor and brag about whose leaves are the most desired.
Situated amid grand columns, flowing curtains, and the golden fabric of high-backed chairs, the main tearoom of Coco’s Tea Room & Bistro surrounds patrons in the grandeur of a traditional high tea. Steaming pots of tea for two are full of the steeping leaves of free-trade teas in varieties such as darjeeling second flush oolong, or organic blueberry rooibos. To accompany teas, patrons can order homemade cakes and cobblers crowned with scoops of ice cream. Heartier meals of café-style food include muffuletta sandwiches, slices of garden quiche, and caesar salads, led unknowingly to tabletops to meet the forks of their destruction.
