I may have an extra from my parents' 50th Anniversary party.  My brother 
didn't want to keep it and I =think= I wound up with both.  Otherwise, I 
have a couple of Seekrit Weapon costuming stores in Burbank.

Charlie didn't mention biscotti.  That may be more "New York" where 
influence of Italian immigration was more pronounced.  My mom, the 
onetime Greenwich Village coffeehouse chick, is all for the idea of 
biscotti on the other hand.  I say, let's do biscotti anyway because 
they neatnik for the beatnik, you dig?

Beats = emo goths of the 50's?
