Call for details. The Robert Mondavi Wine & Food Center is throwing a black-tie party on New Year's Eve.

For Old Times' Sake: The New Year's Eve celebration at the original Spago is going to be overflowing with significance. Spago Hollywood will close in a few months after 18 years of serving from that famous open kitchen. Owners Wolfgang Puck and Barbara Lazaroff decided it wasn't worth the trouble to remodel it, so they're letting their lease expire March 31 (not a huge surprise--Spago Hollywood was upstaged three years ago with the opening of the sleek and glamorous Spago Beverly Hills).

Oguri and the other four members of his Los Angeles-based butoh troupe Renzoku are working on what he calls a salty dance--although at this point, it's safe to say that many ingredients are involved. From the outside, the process looks slightly more mysterious than the kind of rehearsal in which performers learn and repeat sections of a dance. Oguri asks each dancer to choose a few movements of the arms and torso.

The story about the blind boy born in Cuba was passed down in the Flynn clan like a fading family photograph. Only the barest details about him survived the rifts created by personal tragedies, revolution and an impassable sea. The boy was named Frank, like his Irish American father who found work and a wife after moving to Cuba at the turn of the last century.

IT'S the last call for the Conga Room. After eight years at its Miracle Mile location on Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles' premier Latin music nightclub is going dark at the end of the month -- at least for now. Although owners plan to reopen in about two years at a new, larger location within the downtown entertainment complex being built across from Staples Center, the demise of the trailblazing club's first incarnation leaves a vacuum in the city's cultural landscape.

Peronist presidential candidate Carlos Saul Menem's campaign offered a free lunch Saturday and about 8,000 Argentine retirees came, forming a vast street party that had the air of a victory celebration. Menem, the flamboyant populist governor of rural La Rioja province, demonstrated his campaign magic in the working-class Buenos Aires district of La Boca, the riverside entry point for millions of immigrants to Argentina over the years. The sit-down lunch stretched for five city blocks along a closed-off avenue.

A senior American employee of the Panama Canal Commission was killed Wednesday in the latest in a series of brazen attacks that have pushed the rate of violent crime here to levels unknown under the regime of Manuel A. Noriega. Authorities said they could detect no political motive behind the murder of the commission's acting financial officer, William J. Joyce, who was shot by a masked intruder Tuesday night during a theft of guns and jewelry from his home near the mouth of the Panama Canal.

I have no attention span for menu novelties. Yes, the French-Asian fusion of the '90s was once intriguing and exhilarating, but now a teriyaki coq au vin kebab sounds about as seductive as a boiled pencil. There are other faded glories, of course: the yesterdays of blackened redfish, tall food, gigantic ravioli, fussy little pizzas, anything with truffle oil--nouvelle flavors-of-the-month that have, with time, become Valium for the palate.
