It’s going down man! Today marks the day that the Titanic sunk in 1912. Coincidentally, it also marks the day that Fenway Park in Boston opened. So yah for that.
For some reason this was a point of concern for Red Sox fans, as if a divine Calvinism marked us from the coincidence of those two events. But whatever. That all changed I guess in 2004 and Sawx fans forgot about today. Well today, but 96 years ago today. Whatever, you know what I mean.
Still, it bears mentioning. So think about Jack and Rose today as they went down. In celebration, Cooking Monster took a look at the last meal, if you will, of first-class passengers. The meal was actually served on April 14th, but you know it’s like a Christmas Eve/Christmas sort of thing.
They had a ten course meal for crying out loud, including wine pairings and after dinner cigars. Amongst the elicacies were oysters, foie gras, Waldord pudding, squab, filet mignon, lamb with mint sauce, salmon and consumme olga.
I guess you get what you pay for. Though no one probably bought their ticket with a side of death.
Also: I love this fake trailer for the sequel to Titanic. The best is that it splices footage from Demolition Man and Con Air.
