Have you been trying to book a lunch with Jerry Springer, but his office never seems to return your calls? (Jerry, would it help if I confessed to being a former lesbian dominatrix with webbed feet?)

Well, now I -- um, I mean you -- can buy Jerry's undivided attention and bid on other fabulous items at the OVER-THE-RHINE FOUNDATION AUCTION on Thursday, 5-9 p.m. at KALDI'S (1317 Main St.). In addition to lunches with Jerry and other local politicos and celebrities, unique auction items include two tickets to The Ellen DeGeneres Show in New York City, a Cabo San Lucas condo for a week, architectural consultations, dinner for 10 at Karlo's Bistro, Reds' first-base line box seats, a year's worth of movie passes for two, gift certificates to restaurants, spas and fitness centers, autographed sports memorabilia, artwork, performances and an emerald necklace valued at $2,100. Already have an emerald necklace? Then come to connect with community and support efforts in the revitalization of Over-the-Rhine (yes, your presence matters). Kaldi's will offer a cash bar and unveiling a new menu, including some longtime favorites such as Black Bean Chili and BLT Turkey Salad plus new items: a goat-cheese-and-chicken salad and homemade meatloaf. Tickets are $25; available at Kaldi's or by calling 513-721-1317.

The odd species known as Parrotheads finally have a place to roost as CHEESEBURGER IN PARADISE opened its "island fantasy" themed restaurant this month in Eastgate (812 Eastgate North Drive, 513-753-4593). Part of the Outback Steakhouse partnership, the concept restaurant is one of a dozen opened since 2002, with heaviest concentration in the Midwest where most sightings of Parrotheads occur. Besides the famed signature cheeseburger with "lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57 and french-fried potatoes," the restaurant features assorted cuisine that includes fresh fish dishes, house specialties "prepared with a Caribbean flair" and New Orleans-inspired creations such as gumbo and barbecue shrimp. Island fare and beach bar favorites round out the menu, and "Little Parakeets" will be able to choose from "fun" choices such as mini-cheeseburgers and chocolate nachos. Cheeseburger in Paradise is open seven days a week with live entertainment and, according to the press release, "special events" like Full Moon Parties. Since Parrotheads are generally known for their erratic behavior and fondness for margaritas, lord only knows what that means.
