Man, "shoe porn" really is an appropriate term. Why is it that when I see some of these my heart starts racing and the endorphins start to kick in and my brain enters into an altered state of admiration and envy....

FAMs range in price from about $800 to the mid-$1000s. Anyone care to venture a guess as to how much these are new?
I'm sure it's possible to serve "tacky nuts" at a party --perhaps cheep 'beer nuts' at a high end affair, or peanuts in the shell with no receptacle for the shucked shells.
However, setting out the classics is always acceptable, and in my book a wonderful idea. A few roasted and salted cashews to accompany a whiskey or cocktail is a perenial favorite.
As others have pointed out, if you want to "take it up a notch" you can "dress up" your nuts by doing a little...
I have had them in different towns and places (years ago), though the attraction of a strip club is different from that of the attraction of a lap dance.
I typically prefer to pass on the dance and observe them from afar. Indeed, if you're lucky enough to be sitting next to a high roller, you may get most of the benefit of a lap dance (i.e. observation from not very afar and close proximity of said objects of giggling desire) without laying down the big $.
