Still in need of Valentine’s plans?

Consider enjoying a meal inspired by those served on the Titanic.

The N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences is currently hosting a Titanic exhibit. And the museum’s The Daily Planet Cafe is being transformed into the ship’s first-class passenger dining room. Diners also will be entertained by a performance featuring love story narratives that emerged from the ship.

Dinner starts at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour featuring Titanic-inspired drinks, including the “Iceberg Martini,” “Night Sky,” and “St. Germaine & Champagne.” A three-course dinner will follow. The price is $50 per person plus a pass to see the Titanic exhibit that can be used at a later date.

(Specialty cocktails are not included in the ticket price.) To purchase tickets, visit rockytophospitality.com/about/gift-cards.php.
