When I lived in NYC I knew an Italian guy who wore a cape when he first moved there, but the incessant shouts of "Count Dracula/Chocula, you suck" etc made him abandon it fairly quickly.

Almost every New Year's Eve and St. Valentine's Day, we have caviar on blini with champagne or vodka. Would like to have it more often, but its really gotten expensive, much more so than in the past due to overfishing. This year we tried domestic paddlefish caviar, and it was quite surprisingly good, and at 1/3 to 1/4 the price of Russian or Iranian caviar a real bargain.
