$25,000 a plate meal for "Epicurean Masters of the World" served in Thailand. Some of the proceeds go to charity. The Ruckus Society, perhaps? Or, the Trimalchio Fund for Gout? Petronius made a good living as satirist. Wish I could do the same, but no one ever invites me to play the flute at these gatherings. Nero was not all bad. At least he could fiddle.
