Those unable to travel to New York can mouse over to the Santa gallery at mycokerewards.com. Coke will donate 75› (up to $25,000) for each online visitor during the month of December. Recipient?

dewars toasts itself
Few days on distillers' calendars are more hallowed than Dec. 5, the anniversary of prohibition's repeal. To mark the date this year, Dewar's took out a two-page spread in The New York Times, and on it reprinted the paper's front page reporting the 18th Amendment's demise. That history is a little self-serving, of course, as Dewar's also takes the time to remind consumers that its White Label was the first legal Scotch whisky to make it back to U.S. shores.
