As of late November, Metro was carrying bulk bags of whole nutmeg. Though it's probably more nutmeg than you'll use in a lifetime.
Double check Paul's, too. I could almost swear they have nutmeg there as well.

We'll be playing at Cacao this Friday around dinner time. Come for good Mexican food and a mix of Cuban/Irish songs and other tunes.

As a side note, the entrance to the consulate isn't particularly well marked. Go around the side of the building until you find 155号附1号, then go up to the 5th floor.
