We've gotten lost more than once while under the influence. Boston designer Brian Johnson's new glassware creations probably won't help with that, since we'll be sipping from them at home — but we still dig his snazzy rocks glasses ($25 for two) and carafes ($50), each hand-etched with a detailed street map. They're the latest releases from his design house, theUncommonGreen, known for its use of eco-friendly materials and its geek appeal (picture bar towels covered with the complete genetic code for alcohol dehydrogenase and "pi plates" sporting hundreds of digits from everyone's favorite irrational number). For the new glassware line, Johnson started with theUncommonGreen's home base, South Boston, adding map-adorned designs for Greater Boston and other cities, from Portland to LA to Chicago. There will be more than a dozen locales by the month's end, offering lots of options for holiday giving — and a good way to toast with a drinking buddy in another time zone.
