How To Honor the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic’s Sinking

On April 15th 1912 the RMS Titanic had its infamous collision with a large iceberg.  Over 1,500 died & the “unsinkable” ship sank.

If the 1998 film hysteria around the epic disaster wasn’t enough to feed America’s fascination or you could even go so far as to say obsession with the Titanic, the 100th Anniversary events might be.

We looked through countless events and dialed down the options to the Top 5 ways to honor the centennial of the Titanic’s doomed maiden voyage.

1. Have a Titanic Themed Dinner Party Tonight- serve something similar to the below First-Class Menu from that fateful night.
