Tequila Worm Salt
From The Green Head : "Tequila shots get slightly more interesting when you lick this new Tequila Worm Salt off the back of your hand before slamming the shot and biting the wedge of lime. This intense smoky-flavored salt is made from rock salt infused with chilis and an appropriately ground-up agave worm. It's also great for seasoning salads or just that tasty little worm floating in a bottle of mezcal."
From another website:
We're calling it Worm Tequila Salt because not everyone speaks Spanish but Sal de Gusano — as it's known south of the border down Mexico way — is a delicious condiment and an authentic addition to tequila and cocktails.
Made using only the finest of Gusano worms, plucked from their spiky cactus homes and blended with rock salt and chili to create an intense smoky flavor that's perfect with salsas, salads, and seasoning.
Spice up your next cocktail party or BBQ with this special salt. Olé!
Please note: Contains worms — not suitable for vegetarians.
Ingredients: Salt, Chili, Gusano/Maguey worm.
$14.59 ("Tequila, lime, and shot glass not included").
Fair warning to the Guadalajara Friday lunch-on-the-patio girls (you know who you are): I am SO bringing this the next time I crash your party.

From Arlene Hirst's September 12, 2012 New York Times Home section story: "[New York-based designer] Harry Allen deals in twisted household archetypes. For his latest project, Paperwork lanterns for Hive, he has transformed an old barn lantern into a ghostly light fixture. 'It's humble, like a found object,' Mr. Allen said. Cast in papier-mâché and mounted on black or chromed steel, the collection includes a table lamp, floor lamp and chandelier, all designed to hang from hooks attached to an armature. The lights are illuminated with LED bulbs. A single lantern [top] measures 15½ inches high, 9-5/8 inches wide, and 4¾ inches deep, and costs $350."
