This year a lucky bidder and up to seven friends will dine with Warren Buffet at the Smith and Wollensky steakhouse in Manhattan.

Bidding starts at 7:00PM Pacific Time tonight (June 22, 2008) with an opening bid of $25,000. I’m not sure what I’d want to talk to Warren Buffet about, but for $650k, Smith and Wollensky had better serve some exceptional steak.
