Box reported missing as of 11/8/04, but I have yet to check on it.

Difficulty: Easy (short, flat walk). Metro accessible (once you figure out where the starting point is)
Stamp: Hand-carved
Box: Mini. Bring your own stamp pad.
NOTE: I will probably either pull the box or replace it with another stamp after Halloween's over, so be sure to hunt while the hunting's good!

And in cauldron bake it (semper fi),
Walk ye north, past shillelagh,
Past martini glasses of three,
Past hedges trimmed so carefully,
Now cross the street and stand at ease.
Look ye left -- see the masks?
They symbolize drama's many casts.
(This is where a witch's pot can be found,
Among the rows where costumes abound.)
You stand now before the City Bank
Built long before Citibank;
Astride the building's right side,
See a planter where three lives reside.
Betwixt one with hanging shoots
And another with bushy roots,
Lies the thing that you pursue,
A batch of boiling Witches Brew.

(With apologies to Shakespeare!)
