Dining around the islands

Do you like green eggs and ham?

You do not like them.
So you say.
Try them! Try them!
And you may.
Try them and you may, I say.

The Cat in the Hat is the celebrity of choice Saturday.

We refer, of course, to green eggs and ham. Try them, try them when the Kahala Mandarin Oriental marks the opening of "The Cat in the Hat" movie with "The Cat in the Hat" Tea Party, 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the Waialae Ballroom.

Scrambled Green Eggs and Ham are on the menu, along with One Fish Tuna Fish Sandwiches, Chocolate Chip Flip, Thing 1 and Thing 2: Sneetches' Scones, the Chocolate Chunk Gunk that Got Thunk Cake and other Seuss-themed delights.

Radio personality Tom Moffatt will read "The Cat in the Hat," and prizes will be awarded in the "Most Hats on the Head," "Tallest Hat" and "Most Memorized Lines from 'Cat in the Hat'" contests.

Cost is $25 (children under 2 free), which includes a goodie bag for each paying child. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the national First Book organization. Reservations required. Call 739-8890.
