Would You Pass the Salt, King Tut?
A mention only because, really, this is so Dallas. In the morning mail, we discovered the invitation to experience "a once-in-a-lifetime entertainment and dining experience fit for a king and queen," courtesy the Dallas Museum of Art. Seems the DMA's offering folks the chance to privately meet and greet King Tutankhamum when he arrives in Dallas come October; you can even dine with the boy king in the museum's "secure art storage vault," which sounds a little dusty though nothing Stephan Pyles' cooking can't overcome. Also included: a private reception with up to 20 of your closest pals, a Tut lecture over dessert and coffee and a private tour of Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs. And valet parking, d'uh.
And what'll this experience run ya? Only $35,000. Though, notes the invite, "THE EXPERIENCE IS PRICELESS!" If I'd known they'd line up just to see him, I'd've taken all my money and bought me a museum. --Robert Wilonsky
