Reeling you in at $175 a plate

Forget the lobster bib; wear a life vest: A resort restaurant at Snoqualmie Falls will offer a crab dinner Wednesday, hosted by crab boat captain Sig Hansen of The Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch.”

For added realism, guests at the $175 a plate dinner will periodically be splashed with ice cold sea water and will be yelled at for holding their crab crackers wrong.

TV trays are out? A reader asks Martha Stewart how to seat 22 people for a holiday dinner so nobody feels left out.

Martha recommends renting a couple of large tables, but we think she’s forgetting the rite of passage that occurs when a young adult graduates to the big table from the card table in the kitchen.

Not in the house! Angered by layoffs and low pay, hundreds of Chinese workers rioted at a manufacturing plant that makes Nerf toys.

Security guards quelled the riot with Nerf batons and Nerf bullets.

Darndest thing: The Buzz will let a youngster get the last laugh today. Dominick Mangini Ross, a kindergartner at Shoultes Elementary School in Marysville, was asked what happens after Thanksgiving: “The next month you’re probably going to be a lot bigger a lot.”
