    Who would you invite for a dinner party.
    Ten well known individuals-must be still living and not be completley obscure.
    mine would include..
    Jimmy Carter
    Conde Rice
    James Baker
    Brian Greene -(string theory guy)
    Peter Nowak
    Willie Nelson
    Gunther Grass
    Jack Welch
    Milton Freidman
    Bill Russel

    Greene and Nowak are borderline obscure , but still can be passed off as "known".. anyone who watches Nova will recognize "string theroy" and this is bigsoccer.. so Nowak is well known here :p

    I'd probably invite a bunch of people whose names I could spell correctly.

    I'd invite Bill Gates, because this dinner would be at Per Se, and someone has to pick up the tab.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to obie again.


    Seriously, though, I think I'd have the following:

    1. Pol Pot
    2. Adolph Hitler
    3. Josef Stalin
    4. Idi Amin
    5. Charles Manson
    6. Vlad Dracul

    Topic of conversation: "What the hell was all that about, anyway???"

    Provided that Gates has the clout to get you in. Maybe you could sit at the bar, or slum across the hall at Masa.

    My wife asked me if we could go to Per Se for her birthday at the end of January. I told her it was either that or renovating our kitchen. She's mulling it over.

    For future reference, did you call two months ahead at exactly 10 am, or did you luck out into some random date / time?
    Please do. Are you doing lunch or dinner?

    If you're prepared to be flexible (like changing your party to four, rather than two), you can get someting for 1.5 months in advance. However, calling really early does help, yeah.

    Dinner. Actually, now that I think about it, I might be able to get away with an expensed lunch there...............

    Is it true, then, that the count is still alive?

    Ten well-known individuals? That are still alive? It would be tough to come up with ten with whom the dinner would be peaceful, never mind that I'd enjoy dinner with. We'll try, though:

    Joschka Fischer
    Snoop Dogg
    Norah Jones
    Peter Camejo
    Starhawk
    Jim Collins
    Lawrence Ferlinghetti
    Medea Benjamin
    Rowan Williams (The Archbishop of Cantebury)
    Carly Fiorina

    Jimmy Carter
    Ian MacKaye
    Max Bretos & Allen Hopkins (of course!)
    Pele
    Xzibit (why not, seems like a fun guy)
    Jesse Ventura
    Neil Armstrong

    I'd like to have added Christopher Reeve, but I'm a few weeks too late on that.

    On a sort of similar note, we had Adrian Cronauer (the real guy from "Good Morning Vietnam") over for dinner with my family right after the movie came out. That was interesting, he had many great stories.
