1. Eat a Titanic Meal
Around the world, you can eat a meal like that last served before the Titanic sunk including oysters, filet mignon, poached salmon, chicken Lyonnaise, foie gras, roasted pigeon, lamb with mint sauce and Punch Romaine, a palate-cleansing ice flavored with oranges and drenched in champagne.
With the said, such dinners celebrating the last meal of those on board the Titanic are arguably in bad taste. After all, such commemorative meals are technically recalling the last meal of all of those who died. The Tampa Tribune offers what is indeed “food for thought”:
… marking the ship’s sinking by hedonistically celebrating only the extravagance that took place before the iceberg is not only bad form, it speaks ill of our respect for those caught in that night’s tragedy as well as tragedies that have yet to happen. If we’re willing to overlook mass casualties for the sake of having a party and making a buck, what else will we choose to sanitize?
