    A piano recital and panel discussion before the dinner.

    Two hundred-fifty dollars a serving strikes me as either absurdly overpriced or a real steal. I can’t decide.

    “Ham Cybele” makes me think of Japan-based Nippon Ham, makers of Winny-brand skinless wieners.

    I was workin’ the angle of “organ meat.” Couldn’t get the poetry right. A little “urp” kept comin’ up in the back of my throat. Before now, I was a little proud of my lack of gag-reflex.

    And “Japan-based Nippon Ham” makes me laugh. “Winny-brand skinless wieners” makes me squeamish.

    I know, I know. You’d think I’d have developed a tolerance.
