Thought this was interesting. A restaurant is serving the Titanic menu.

A local restaurant is doing one of these, and they give each person the name of one of the passengers of the ship. At the end of the dinner they announce who dies!

Seems a little morbid to me.

Nevermind, just read the end of your post. It is morbid.

That's great. Both an interesting dinner and a meaningful way to get your head around what we see as an inevitable and oft retold tragedy.

The person's name thing was done in one of the first tours that the museum hosts, not sure if they still do it. A friend of mine said he loved the idea.

We went to see the Titanic event today and they give you a card with a passengers name on it when you enter. It has the place they were coming from and going to as well as the class of their ticket. I guess there was some way to look up the person at the end of the tour to see if your person survived or not but it was swamped with kidlets.
One thing I noticed was the lunch menu for the last day in first class had grilled "mutton" chops. I found that intersting but I guess "mutton" didn't really get a bad rep until much later in WWII.

Little off topic, but when I was in middle school, we had what was called "International Week" (they still do it, my sister is a teacher there now). "International Week" consisted of a series of events designed to expose students to various cultures from around the world (guest speakers, food, art, language, dance, etc.).

Towards the end of the week, students could purchase a ticket to attend a "hunger luncheon" in the auditorium (just about everyone participated as I recall). Each ticket had a number printed on it, which was used to divide students into economic classes once we entered the auditorium. A few lucky students were called up on to the stage where they were seated at nice tables and served a turkey dinner. Others received a chair and simple bag lunch, while the vast majority were served water and a plate of rice and beans (or just water and rice).

During the luncheon, a guest speaker talked about the various levels of poverty and inequality in the world. It was an eye opening experience for many of us (there were awfully few kids sitting on the stage) and a memorable reminder to be grateful for all that we have. (Proceeds from the event were donated to a local food bank.)
