    Ben Bernanke No Cheap Date

    Sure, he’ll accept your dinner invitation. But it’s gonna cost ya. The former Fed Chair doesn’t get out of bed/attend speaking engagements, pan roasted truffled squab or not, for less than a quarter mill.

    When Preet Bharara And His Brother Do Dinner, Nobody Whips Out A Groupon

    Mr. Bharara is rumored to be independently wealthy, the result of an early investment in his younger brother’s company, Quidsi, the parent of Diapers.com and Soap.com, which was sold to Amazon.com for $540 million in 2010, as DealBook’s Peter Lattman noted at the DealBook conference on Tuesday.

    Don’t Let Opportunity To Simulate Eating Dinner With Warren Buffett Pass You By

    Adding yet another level to Buffett-mania, dinner at his childhood home will be auctioned off for charity starting at $6,000. The catch: Warren Buffett won’t actually be there. But he’ll tape a personal video for the dinner party, assuredly complete with plenty of Aw-Shucks memories of growing up in the very home! The guests will also get a personally autographed photo of Buffett in front of the home…As is customary for the hometown loving Buffett, the dinner, for up to 10 guests, will feature Nebraska pride, including Omaha Steaks filet mignons and wine from Spirit World…The bidding for the dinner-sans-Buffett will begin at 7 p.m. ET today. It will remain open until April 20. [WSJ]
