The Cost of the State Dinner

Not even factoring in the cost of decoration, staffing, security, entertainment, etc...just look at the menu.

A few notable items served carry quite the cost.

While you were munching on your dollar menu, ramen noodle, or Hamburger Helper last night; the State Dinner last night came with quite the stately cost...
