Do you love truffle? Like, really really love truffle? If you do, I've got the dinner for you. Next Thursday, Nov. 13, Michael's on Naples in Long Beach is having a $300 six-course dinner with wine pairings included. The biggest perk though? Your own personal Alba white truffle complete with truffle shaver so you can shave to your heart's delight.

If you're interested, you can make a reservation by calling (562) 439-7080. Take note, the $300 doesn't include tax or gratuity. Me? As much as I'd love to take a bite out of a truffle as if it were an apple, $300 is a little rich for my blood.
I bet that'd pop a few monocles though.
