It looks like the long-fabled Iron Chef America episode featuring Tom Douglas is finally going to air.

And he’s throwing a party. From the Seattle P-I:

The “Battle Salmon” pitting Masaharu Morimoto against our own Tom Douglas will air on Nov. 6, and Douglas is hosting a dinner-and-viewing that night, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Palace Ballroom, 2100 Fifth Ave.

Douglas promises slightly kitschy festivities featuring the same five-course meal he and colleagues Mark Fuller and Eric Tanaka presented in the Food Network show, plus a Japanese hachimaki headband, two cocktails, and a chance to watch the show ($95/person). For reservations call 206-448-2001.

That’s a bit steep for me, but I’d still be tempted if it wasn’t the same day as Mind Camp.
