Still making your list and checking it twice, even though Christmas is just two days away?

Not to worry.

G2 has a suggestion that just might come in handy.

• If fans of “The Wire” are on your list, consider this: Baltimore DJ Aaron Lacrate — who has worked with a star-studded roster of musicians, including Mark Ronson, Jay-Z and Kanye West — has created T-shirts in honor of the defunct Peabody Award-winning HBO series.

Mr. Lacrate’s edgy creations are available through Milkcrate Athletics and at the HBO Shop, both in New York City, and online at www.Karmaloop.com.

• Perhaps you have a foodie on your list? He or she is certain to savor the new cookbook “In the Cheesemaker’s Kitchen,” which features D.C. celebrity chef Michael Richard - who often hosts notables and dignitaries at his Georgetown restaurant, Citronelle.

In “Cheesemaker’s Kitchen,” he partners with Allison Hooper, founder of Vermont Butter and Cheese Creamery, and shares his love for fromage along with tips for incorporating the milk-based product into everyday cooking.

• Football fans with a hankering to see live college ball over the holiday season might enjoy a pair of tickets to Tuesday’s second annual EagleBank Bowl at RFK Stadium near Capitol Hill. The University of California at Los Angeles takes on Philadelphia’s Temple University. Kickoff is 4:30 p.m. sharp; gates open at 11 a.m. ESPN will broadcast the game, which will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

New deal offered

The Competitive Enterprise Institute has upped the ante in an effort bring former Vice President Al Gore to the debate table.

Last month, the conservative public interest group supported Lord Christopher Monckton, who publicly challenged Mr. Gore to defend his position on global warming by offering Mr. Gore a check for $500 plus proceeds from a pledge-a-dollar-to-debate campaign.

With the wind of the Climategate e-mail scandal at its back, CEI has sweetened the pot by offering a $25 pre-paid gas card.

We wonder if Mr. Gore will be able to resist such a lucrative offer.
