If you still need to pick up a few cases for a party tonight — New Year’s Eve, baby — try the NV Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve. Cellared in 2004, it’s got the creamy and yeasty robustness you come to expect from Champagne, but it’s not over the top. Neither is the price. As of late last week, Wine Thieves was selling it for $29.99 (normally $35).

For those who prefer California sparklers, try the NV Scharffenberger. It’s got the typical green apple crispness of sparkling wine and it’s only $15.99 (normally $18) at the Thieves’.

Above all, drink plenty, be safe and don’t go sabering any bottles with a chef’s knife. Unless you’re quite skilled.
