Having a friend who’s considered herself a “Titaniac” since elementary school means that when the ship-sinking centennial rolls around, there’s sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime fête commemorating the occasion. So it was last Saturday night, with an authentic nine-course Titanic meal (complete with wine pairings, natch) at the Alki Bathhouse. Even the invitations indicated that it would be a night to remember.
Anchors aweigh! Every invitee was given a real passenger's dossier to serve as inspiration. I was a Parisian model who went down with the ship. Spoiler alert!
Meanwhile, my roommate was a New York actress who made it out on the first lifeboat.
