Sometimes the holidays can feel like a blizzard of in-laws, out-of-town guests and ugly sweater parties. So whether you love the cold or are seeking a new hot spot, here’s how to break free of your snow globe routine.
Cold: Chill out in Restaurant Europa’s Siberian Vodka Room, an icy-walled cooler kept at 32 degrees that offers more than 20 kinds of infused vodkas — think cinnamon, ginger or horseradish. Plus, Europa supplies fur coats and hats to keep you luxe and cozy. 30519 Pinetree Road, Pepper Pike, 216-591-1273, restauranteuropacleveland.com
Hot: Heat things up with a Sacred Hour Fireside Foot Massage ($60 for 30 minutes; $80 for 60 minutes) beside a wood-burning stone fireplace. Add a 30-minute nap with a cup of tea and aromatherapy oils to your appointment for some extra comfort. 17917 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216-228-9750, sacredhour.com
