You Are Cordially Invited

So you weren't among those lucky few who dined with the king and queen? Consider it a compliment.

Some of the seating arrangements at the dinner also were curious -- for instance putting strident Elian activist Rosa de la Cruz at the same table as Victor Curry, the influential black minister who was outspoken in his public criticism of strident Elian activists. Or placing Cuban American National Foundation chairman Jorge Mas Santos just a table away from attorney Hank Adorno, who was executive vice president of MasTec before he and Mas Santos had a major rupture and the lawsuits started flying.

Politically curious was the number of anti-Castro Spanish-language radio personalities, such as Marta Flores, Tomas Garcia Fuste, and Raquel Regalado, who attended despite Spain's cozy economic relationship with Cuba. Also present was Raul Alarcon, owner of the Spanish Broadcasting System, which forbids the playing of any Cuban national artists on its stations across the country.

But enough of the curiosities. Peruse the complete list as provided by Penelas's office. Consider it a test of your knowledge of the local civic landscape.
