(Newser) – Wanna-be Citizen Kanes have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a night at Hearst Castle—if they can pony up enough cash. A single night for two at William Randolph Heart's ultra-luxe California digs is going up for auction this month on eBay to raise funds to restore the legendary publisher's mammoth art collection, reports the Los Angeles Times. The package, which allows eight friends to visit for dinner, is expected to fetch $100,000.
