Lobster tail and prime rib. Hazelnut-crusted chicken breasts and linzer bites. Make-your-own tacos and tiramisu. Filet mignon sandwiches and sushi. That's what some lucky working stiffs will be eating on the job on New Year's Eve. Most companies that plan to keep staff on through the midnight hour are offering meal perks of some sort, running the gamut from simple continental breakfasts or deli trays to lavish buffets with made-to-order entrees. We've taken a sneak peek at some corporate Y2K rations, and were cheered to note that there wasn't a bag of dried fruit in the bunch.

I JUST don't get it: After $34 billion in profits last year and $9 billion for the first quarter, Exxon is still the most expensive guy on the block. Crude oil was down for a few days, but up at the pump! I thought Exxon was the biggest and best, don't they have a major input on market prices? I believe in making money, but how about giving a little back to the people who put them in their lavish lifestyles? Never mind. Memorial Day is here, and I guess they'll jack us at the pumps so they can have their lobster bakes at their beach mansions.

Daily News Design Editor John Sherlock is a foodie and former prep chef who swears by this compassionate method of offing a lobster: 1. Hold the live lobster by the tail and spread claws. Lift tail up so the lobster is "nose"-down on a hard surface. 2. With your finger or the back of a spoon, gently rub the ridge of the back shell from where the tail meets the ridge toward the pointy tip of the lobster's head. 3. Rub back and forth gently about 10 times and the lobster will go limp.

Deep in the heart of the Food Distribution Center, deep in the shadow of the Walt Whitman Bridge, Morty Krouse sits in a refrigerated room at Century Seafoods and plays "Ebb Tide" on his electric piano for an audience of live lobsters. He is bundled up in a bulky black overcoat against the penetrating cold. He is wearing a black-and-white Century Seafoods golf cap and black-rimmed glasses. His eyebrows tend to scrunch up and form protective peaked roofs over his hazel eyes whenever he's singing a particularly poignant lyric.

Imagine crab salad. Imagine grilled lobster tails. Imagine selling a few shares of Genentech Inc. to pay for these meals, especially if they are nondeductible, family affairs. Imagine an alternative. To the crab. To the lobster. To the sell order. More than 10 years ago, food merchant David Berelson introduced imitation crab - a 1,500-year-old Japanese processed fish food product -to a U.S. market generally unaware of surimi but eager for a reasonably priced alternative to crab.

YOU ALWAYS remember your first. I was a wide-eyed 8-year-old, dining at Dome of the Sea, the only fancy seafood restaurant in the Las Vegas desert of my childhood. The taste of that first sweet morsel was a revelation, a toothsome bite shiny with drawn butter. It felt foreign and fancy, an ordeal complicated by claw crackers and a bib. But, wow, was it worth it. Even the Dome's harp-playing mermaid couldn't top that delicious experience. For most of us, a lobster dinner has long been associated with a special-occasion splurge, though it's common in Maine and Cape Cod as a summertime treat.

In last Sunday's column on the city's long, sorry struggle to compose a proper Maine lobster roll, I applauded a hard-won victory: at the revived Oyster House, at 15th and Sansom, they'd finally pulled it off. It was cause for congratulation, indeed, and relief. The hot dog bun was top-split, buttered, and griddled in the manner of the New England classic. The lobster was big, succulent nuggets, not a stringy lobster salad. Best of all, it was the sole local example of the genuine item that I'd found in years.

A Philadelphia team managed to "fly" nearly 40 feet atop a giant "lobster" on Saturday to win first place in the Red Bull Flugtag, a competition of wacky, homemade flying machines launched from a 30-foot platform on the Camden waterfront. The team, known as New Kids on the Dock, defeated about 30 others with its humongous crustacean. Under the rules of flugtag - "flying day" in German - teams are scored for staying aloft, presentation, and a 30-second song and dance they must perform before "taking flight.

Even big-time DJs can benefit from a good old-fashioned lesson in humility every once in while. When DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince (a/k/a Will Smith) won their first American Music Award, they were on top of the world. Jeffrey Townes, 33, remembers celebrating with family and friends in his West Philadelphia home after bagging one of pop music's most prestigious prizes. And just when he was feeling like the hottest thing since sliced bread, his mother Sarah asked for the dough.

Golden Gate Capital , the San Francisco firm that has agreed to pay $2.1 billion for Darden Group's ailing Red Lobster restaurant chain, relies for most of its financing for the deal on property mogul Nicholas Schorsch , who has built a national real estate finance business since moving his base from Jenkintown to New York during the last recession. Schorsch's American Realty Capital Properties Inc. agreed last week to pay $1.5 billion for more than 500 Red Lobster restaurants, which it plans to lease back to Golden Gate to try to fix. Golden Gate, which also owns Payless ShoeSource, Eddie Bauer , and California Pizza Kitchens , is borrowing from Deutsche Bank and other lenders to raise the remaining $600 million for an attempted turnaround of Red Lobster's business and brand, which has suffered as shrimp prices have soared and newer eating places have grabbed customers.

Jason Greenslate has become America's most prominent public figure who favors a do-rag and surfing slang since Caleb "Kai" McGillvary, the hitchhiking Internet hero turned New Jersey murder suspect. Greenslate's transgressions are less criminal than culinary: Fox News' cameras captured him buying supermarket sushi and lobster (albeit "on special," he noted) with his food-stamp card. Greenslate, a San Diego-area surfer and aspiring rock star with no dependents or identifiable means of support, told Fox that the government's willingness to subsidize his meals is "radical," in the colloquial sense.

Lunchable lobster rolls   The lobster roll is not indigenous to Philadelphia, whose signature aquatic specialty has long run to shelled critters of a different breed - the oyster and the snapping turtle. Local cooks tried to replicate the New England classic, often with comic result. In one instance, lobster salad appeared wrapped in a hoagie roll with its crust sawed off. Then in 2010, the Oyster House nailed it - succulent, poached lobster (tail meat and all) overflowing a toasty, buttered, top-split hot-dog roll.

'TIS THE SEASON for another Italian tradition, the Feast of Seven Fishes, usually served Christmas Eve and sometimes involving up to 13 - but never 40! - courses.

However it started, the custom's pretty entrenched around these parts now.
