As if you need an excuse to partake of a festive martini or highball this time of year, Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach is hosting an ode to all things shaken and stirred with "Cocktail Culture."
The 150-plus-piece exhibition features ads, accessories, fashion, and objets d'art that prove America's current cocktail infatuation ain't nothing new.
It's a perfect art outing for anyone who waxes nostalgic about Don Draper's two-martini lunches and needs a retro fix 'til Mad Men returns in March 2012 (coincidentally, the same month the museum show wraps).
If visions of all those delicious cocktails leave you feeling thirsty, keep in mind City Place and Clematis Street -- with choices like Blue Martini and Gratify American Gastro Pub, respectively -- are just a stone's throw away from the Norton.
