AUSTIN (KXAN) - President Barack Obama's trip to the capital city included a dinner at the Four Seasons -- a $25,000 ticket that plated supporters with an herb-crusted beef tenderloin and grilled summer vegetables.
And while Four Seasons officials said the menu Executive Chef Elmar Prambs prepared was nice, they were certain the bulk of that pricey food tag was more for the privilege of meeting the president.
