Piggy bags: Gourmet leftovers from The Dining Room at the Hilton at Short Hills (N.J.) don't go to waste. Since January 1998 the restaurant has been recycling its table scraps and serving them to cows, pigs and other livestock. The program has saved the hotel almost $25,000 in garbage disposal costs as of August, and the animals enjoyed nearly 129 tons of fine fare.

Planning a meeting in summer 2000? A reminder from our attorney friends at Howe & Hutton, Ltd: Democratic and Republican party conventions may preempt hotel and convention center space. Both parties still have long lists of possible cities. Keep tabs on convention dates and final locations to avoid trouble later on.
