A Night to Remember

The third annual 'Titanic Party' was held last month at the Miscowaubik Club in Calumet.  It is always a fun event.  Period dress is encouraged so we went all out.  I dressed in a large Victorian hat and lacy long black skirt.  Rachel and Will also dressed up.  Ron wore a suit, which I guess counts.  Mens' suits haven't changed much.

The Happy Couple
What made this an even more special evening was my friend David, (aka The Anabolic Gourmet) surprised his girlfriend Shirley and proposed to her!  Their first date was at the first Titanic party two years ago.  So, he was on the microphone, welcoming all the guests (he is also the President of the Club) and there were a bunch of cards on each table with 'Yes' on them.  He said that he would be asking a question in a couple of minutes and wanted to make sure he got the answer he wanted.  He mentioned that the Miscowaubik is a place that creates lasting memories, including he and Shirley's first date.  Then he asked us to get our cards ready, pulled out a ring box, got down on one knee and asked Shirley to marry him.  She was soooo surprised.  It was so cool and very romantic.  I was impressed and even teared up a little. :)

The menu was very impressive as well ; nine courses. 

FIRST COURSE - HORS D'OEURVE
Canape ala Amiral

SECOND COURSE - SOUP
Consomme Olga

THIRD COURSE - FISH
Poached Salmon with Mousseline Sauce

FOURTH COURSE - ENTREE
Filet Mignon Lili

FIFTH COURSE - THE REMOVE
Cider Glazed Roasted Duck Breast

SIXTH COURSE - PUNCH
        Punch Romaine Sorbet          

SEVENTH COURSE - SALAD
Asparagus Salad with Champagne Saffron Vinaigrette

EIGHTH COURSE - COLD SERVICE
Pate Chicken Liver

NINTH COURSE - SWEETS
Flaming Baked Alaska    



Will, being a fussy eater, of course wasn't going to appreciate this fine fare, so the chef prepared him his own multi course dinner consisting of:  Cheese Quessidillas, Fruit Cup, Chicken Strips w/ fries, Spaghetti w/ Marinara and he ate the Filet Mignon, the sorbet and the dessert.
