Capra-esque Cocktails and Literary Coverups.



The George Bailey from La Quinta Resort & Club.

Capra-esque Cocktails
As part of its celebration as being the place where Frank Capra wrote the holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life, restaurants at La Quinta Resort & Club offer (through Dec. 31) two original cocktails based on the main characters. The George Bailey (above) includes Bailey’s Original, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, white crème de cacao, and gingerbread syrup and is served with a burning cinnamon stick. The Mary Bailey Pumpkin Martini includes house-infused pumpkin vodka, spiced pumpkin liqueur, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Taza chai tea latte, and half & half.

Classic Coverup
Maintain your highbrow rep (you do have one, don’t you?) even when viewing lolcats while waiting to board a plane or standing in line somewhere. Out of Print has introduced a line of iPhone cases ($35) and iPad / e-Reader jackets ($40-$50) featuring classic book covers: Moby Dick, The Great Gatsby (right), Lolita, et al. Through its partnership with Books for Africa, Out of Print donates one book to a school or community in Africa for each item it sells.
