Several years ago, I got an invitation to a free lunch. Of course, it came with financial advice. It was at Mrs. K's, an excellent restaurant, and I went just to see what would happen, and because I expected good food from Mrs. K's.(1) The advice was terrible, but I won't go into that now, except to say that the fees were huge, and for essentially nothing.(2) The food was rubber chicken. Terrible stuff.It really struck me as a terrible thing that this excellent restaurant would sully its reputation by serving rubber chicken. But maybe they did not care about people who were stupid enough to want free financial advice - they figured we could not afford their restaurant anyway.Now this new invitation comes from a different organization. They promise a "gourmet meal" at Morton's Steak House. Now that is another place with an excellent reputation. Do you suppose that Morton's would sully its reputation by serving rubber chicken? Is it worthwhile for me to satisfy my curiosity to find out?Is there a special required course in culinary school on how to make rubber chicken for the masses?I am tempted to go just to see. Unfortunately, they talk first and serve food later. No way to skip out early with a meal.
