The Staggering Ox restaurant in Helena, Mont., has renamed a popular menu item. The "Up OPEC!!" SANDWICH--a concoction of meat, feta and jack cheeses, onions, green peppers, olives and tomatoes--was originally called the "Slam Damn Saddam" and found its way onto the menu after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. The owners, who say they like to immortalize things, changed the name because "we figured (Saddam Hussein) has been immortalized enough."

Is Ted ready to roam with the buffalo? With Ted Turner announcing this week that he's stepping down as vice chairman of AOL Time Warner Inc., one thing that lies ahead for the media magnate is tending to his fledgling chain of buffalo burger restaurants. Ted's Montana Grill has only six locations, none farther west than Colorado, serving what the company calls "comfort food for the 21st century."

Snake salad probably won't ever rival Caesar or Cobb on the American salad hit parade, but it's a hot seller at Phong Dinh in Rosemead. If you order it, don't expect to find something slithery and ominous-looking. The snake meat looks as much like a snake as hamburger looks like a steer. This Vietnamese-style snake salad is a beautiful arrangement of ground meat with fresh, fragrant herbs and crunchy tree-ear mushrooms, all tossed in a sweetish, lightly spiced vinegar dressing.

Ted Turner steps out of his hotel room near Georgetown, closes his eyes and clutches his chest. His knees begin to buckle and then he starts to swoon as if he has just been shot through the heart. Why me? you can almost hear the media titan ask. The talk has turned to the box office prospects for his epic Civil War film "Gods and Generals," which Warner Bros. plans to release on Friday. When someone mentions that movie attendance could drop dramatically if war breaks out, Turner groans.
