Grand Openings 

Drink a toast to openers with a little something extra.

Who can resist the allure of this mythical, finned, feminine creature? Such an appealing mermaid bottle opener isn't one you'll easily misplace, though you might be wary of covetous friends who ask to borrow her -- $25 at Winky's (2038 Magazine St., 568-1020).
Whether you're a wine aficionado or you just want your guests to think you are, at $55 this set -- which comes in a lined wooden box and includes a corkscrew, a thermometer, a cork stopper, a pouring spout and a drip-stop ring -- is a must-have. Find it at Objets Trouvés (3956 Magazine St., 897-5066)
If you need to be reminded to "Celebrate" or say "Cheers" before you imbibe, these engraved tools should do the trick. Buy the corkscrew, $24, and the bottle opener, $23, at Orient Expressed (3905 Magazine St., 899-3060; www.orientexpressed.com).
