The upcoming Royal Wedding, as you know, is the Big One; the Super Bowl, the NBA Finals and the World Cup rolled into one for that not insignificant segment of the populace more interested in romance than in watching grown men kick a ball. We all will be noting the event in our own way - I plan to be drinking mezcal in a bar without a television.

But the fine people at Cost Plus World Market have their own ideas of what you might bring to a festive viewing party: a jar of Marmite; a container of Bisto Gravy Granules; and a six-pack of Heinz Baked Beans, should you be inspired to recreate, in the best English tradition, Roger Daltrey's bathtub on the cover of The Who Sell Out. If the latter, remember to gently warm the beans first. Daltrey reportedly contracted pneumonia after the shoot.
