What to do with too many limes?

I have a huge pile of limes (30 or so) left over from a party that involved fewer caipirinhas than I expected. Now I don't know what to do them. Any ideas?
Key lime pie
Margaritas. You can drink virgin margaritas if you're not looking for a party night. Each margarita uses up at least two limes, sometimes more.
Send the limes to me...
ah ha! no scurvy for you.
how about "key" lime pie? or you can make a simple syrup for cocktails. or how about lime curd? lime cheesecake?
I also like lime squeezed on tacos of any kind, in soups. esp. tortilla soup...mmmm...
I also like to make dipping sauces with garlic, sugar, fish sauce & chili paste. get some shrimp rolls and you are in business.
how about a slaw of some kind? ah, lots of possibilites.
I just love limes.
I've read that the zest and fresh juice can be frozen...why not do just that and then maybe look up a Key Lime Chicken recipe or take other folk's advice and make a lovely Key Lime Pie? By the way, lime juice and soy sauce make a pretty great marinade for chicken...with some chili powder...and well, if you want such a recipe let me know...you'll need a grill and at this time of year, I know it is not possible for many folk.
