Bubbles
the skint

SHOW
More bubbles per square inch than any place in New York: The Gazillion Bubble Show; good merchandise, too.

BUBBLE AND SQUEAK
On the lunch menu as a side at The Breslin at the Ace Hotel.

SPARKLING WATER
Reduce the environmental damage caused by plastic water bottles (and save money) with a SodaStream sparkling water maker.

BUBBLE BATH
You get "big, movie star bubbles," they say, from Spuma's Bubble Bath. Spuma is Italy's oldest family-owned perfume house.

BUBBLE WRAP
Keep your bubble wrap near with Bubble Snap, a free popping simulator for iPhone and iPod Touch.

LOUNGE
Tribeca's long-running Bubble Lounge serves over 300 Champagnes and sparkling wines.

BEVERLY SILLS
A tribute site to the late, much-loved soprano.

MUSIC
They may be Brooklyn-based, but The Tiny Bubbles band definitely has the aloha spirit.

BUBBLE GUM
Grant Achatz has been known to cook with it, David Burke has bubble gum cheesecake on the menu at The Stadium Grill at Bowlmor Lanes (Gael Greene didn't care for it). And Mr. Burke once had a dish at David Burke & Donatella of bubble gum sorbet. We'll stick with Bazooka from Topps, originally based in Brooklyn.

BUBBLE TEA
They do both tea and bubbles right at TenRen's Tea Time, 79 Mott [Canal/Bayard].

CHAMPAGNE
You're paying? Krug. We're paying? Billecart-Salmon Rosé.
