LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

Y ou'll be a toast master on New Year's Eve after sampling our bubbly package of drink recommendations. In "Punch Drunk," Chicago Newcity's Keir Graff showcases retro party potions, including Glogg and Artillery Punch. If champagne pops your cork, "Burst Bubbles" and "The Tasting" will give you Austin Chronicle's picks to click, while "The Word From The Experts" features imbibing tips from veteran liquor-store employees.

In "1998 Sports In Review," Nashville Scene's Randy Horick recalls a Heisman candidate for the ages, Bryce Drew's buzzer-beating winner for Valpo in the NCAA hoops tourney, and that little home-run race you may have heard about. Plus, Horick lays his sports-writing rep on the line with college football bowl picks.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it: Visit an espionage-supply store with Memphis Flyer's Jim Hanas in "Spy vs. Spy." From truth phones and necktie cams to bug sweepers and photo-Tasers that stun adversaries with blinding flashes of light, this is the shop for the paranoid person who has everything.
