Nothing says holiday cheer like a stocked bar! Or does it. I’d like to submit the following as the etiquette question of the day: Is it better to disguise the hard stuff behind/under/inside a nice piece of furniture? I ask because it seems that offerings for barely-there home bars are popping up everywhere. Take Ballard Designs (which, by the way, is offering free shipping through Dec. 13). Right now they’re featuring no less than three handsome hide-the-booze pieces. So what happened to stashing the rum in a kitchen cabinet? Does it make it more civilized or is it a little weird to have a whole piece of furniture devoted to cocktails? I’m torn on the topic. Thoughts?
